What can the UK tell us about renewable electricity?

Benny Peiser, CEO of the Global Warming Policy Foundation is a climate change expert and a complete Renaissance Man who brings a contemporary and historical social perspective to power generation, as well as deep knowledge of the science and policy solutions.

As an example of his breadth of interests his name is literally written in the sky with a minor planet bearing his name, in honour of his work on “near earth objects and impact hazards”. He is a former member of the German Greens, and holds a PhD in Cultural Studies for a thesis examining the history, archaeology and natural history of Greek problems at the time of the ancient Olympic Games.

Nigel Lawson, Margaret Thatcher’s Chancellor of the Exchequer founded the GWPF with Benny in 2009, and under Peiser’s direction it has become a major source of climate realist policy in the UK. Benny believes that climate change is real, that CO2 is a greenhouse gas, and that temperatures are increasing. But the devil is in the detail, and he advocates for policies which will promote human flourishing.

The UK is much further down the road to replacing fossil fuels than Australia, and has now been hit by the impact of sanctions against Putin’s Russia. Benny is in the best position to tell Australians what our future might hold, and how we can avoid the mistakes the UK has made.

This will be an enthralling presentation not to be missed by anyone who cares about the future of Australia.
