The Fossil Fuel Industry Knows How To Stop Global Warming, But Why Don’t They? – Myles Allen

Nov 10, 2020

Oxford University climate science scholar Myles Allen presented this Ted Talk at Countdown: a global initiative to accelerate solutions to the climate crisis.

The fossil fuel industry knows how to stop global warming, but they’re waiting for someone else to pay, says climate science scholar Myles Allen. Instead of a total ban on carbon-emitting fuels, Allen puts forth a bold plan for oil and gas companies to progressively decarbonize themselves and sequester CO2 deep in the earth, with the aim of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 and creating a carbon dioxide disposal industry that works for everyone.
