SS Conference Rms. 3 & 4
Social Sciences Bldg.

In this seminar, Dr. Laurence Delina will discuss his recent book,
'Strategies for Rapid Climate Mitigation: wartime mobilisation as a model
for action?' (Routledge 2016). Since climate change is happening at faster
rates than expected, what can be done to rapidly addressed its root causes?
In a Gedankenexperiment, Dr. Delina draws upon episodes of World War 2
mobilizations to lay out contingency climate action strategies based upon
the relative optimism provided by rapid deployment of demonstrated and
proven sustainable energy technologies to effectively abate further
emissions. How could high-emission states quickly mobilize the required
technologies, finance, and labour resources? How could governments
coordinate these complex processes? What are the strengths and limitations
of wartime mobilisation - accelerated climate mitigation analogy?
