# Episode Title Description People Date
1 CO2 solutions: ocean carbon storage options The speakers explore the various approaches being proposed to store and preserve CO2 in the ocean, many inspired by mechanisms known to function naturally in the past, and assess the challenges and research hurdles for their implementation in the future. Ros Rickaby, Sophie Gill, Roxana Shafiee, Myles Allen 07 Jun 2021
2 Between a rock and a wet place: putting carbon back into geological storage The cycle of carbon between the Earth’s surface and its deep interior is a key component of our goldilocks planet. In this discussion Professor Mike Kendall, Professor Joe Cartwright and Dr Tom Kettlety will discuss CO2 storage in geologic reservoirs. Mike Kendall, Joe Cartwright, Tom Kettlety 07 May 2021
3 Beyond zero: the role of negative emissions What are the different ways to remove carbon dioxide from air? How much potential do they have, and how can we scale them up? Perhaps most importantly, will negative emissions be a vital addition to action on emissions or a costly distraction? Tim Kruger, Steve Smith 18 Mar 2021
4 Zero carbon energy systems Join Nick Eyre and Steve Smith for a discussion on a renewable energy, energy efficiency and carbon emissions. Nick Eyre, Steve Smith 04 Mar 2021
5 Powering the future: switching on the renewables Globally, renewable energy has a foot in the door. But significant challenges remain. Malcolm McCulloch 18 Feb 2020
