Can we invent our way out of the climate crisis?


About this ThinkIn

We need to cut carbon emissions fast, they are racing in the opposite direction – ever upwards. Does this mean it’s time for huge geo-engineering projects to halt global warming by other means? Mirrors in space? Aerosols in the stratosphere? Bubbles in the ocean? Entrusting the planet to the mad professor school of science may be the only option if we cannot curb our addiction to energy.

Our special guests include:

Duncan Clarke, Consultant Editor for Guardian Environment; Visiting Researcher at UCL Energy Institute; Co-Founder of Kiln & Author of The Burning Question.

Neil Cloughley, CEO of Faradair Aerospace Limited.

Judy Ling Wong OBE CBE, Environmental Activist & Honorary President of the Black Environment Network.

Mothiur Rahman, Lawyer, Extinction Rebellion.

Naresh Ramchandani, Founder of Do the Green Thing & Partner at Pentagram. 

Chair: Giles Whittell, Editor & Partner at Tortoise. 


What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.

Drinks from 6.00pm, starts promptly at 6.30pm. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can ‘SlinkIn’!

If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing thinkin@tortoisemedia.com

We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.

Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
