Climate Change: The Need for Action Now

Faced with accelerating global impacts of climate change, Sir David King will discuss how human civilisation and our planet can still win back the chance of surviving and thriving. Climate Repair offers a scalable, safe recipe for future climate stability. The strategy applies three immediate climate repair measures. 1. Reduction in emissions, to achieve very rapid progress to close to zero greenhouse gas emissions. 2. Removal of excess greenhouse gases from the atmosphere at scale. 3. In order to buy time to achieve the first two objectives, Repairing the Arctic Circle region by refreezing the Arctic Sea surface during the polar summer.
