How can we cool the planet if we fail to meet our CO2 emissions targets? Scary stuff – we need to be talking about it! Come and join the conversation with Professor Hugh Hunt.

Dr Hugh Hunt is a Reader in Engineering Dynamics and Vibration at Cambridge University. His research centres on the control of noise and vibration from underground railways, but he got caught up in geoengineering as Co-Investigator on the SPICE project, 2010-15, which looked at various aspects of SRM spicepipe.co.uk. He was responsible for an outdoor experiment, the 1km testbed, which was intended to evaluate the influence of wind on the motion of a tethered balloon, but controversy over geoengineering experiments led to the testbed being cancelled. He is now promoting other technologies for the removal of non-CO2 greenhouse gases, in particular methane and N2O suggr.co.uk. He also runs the Cambridge Climate Lecture Series which aims to raise awareness of the urgency around climate change. climateseries.com

Hugh is a regular presenter on television documentaries on Channel 4, PBS Nova and SBS, including «Dambusters: Building the Bouncing Bomb», «Attack of the Zeppelins», «Escape from Colditz» and «Guy Martin Wall of Death». He is Keeper of the Clock at Trinity College, a clock which is demonstrably the most accurate tower clock in the world trin.cam.ac.uk/clock. He has an impressive collection of boomerangs which he uses to inspire students in the study of dynamics and mechanics.
