Scenarios of fundamental global challenges

2010-06-09 - 2010-06-09

Welcome to a Stockholm seminar with Kjell Aleklett, Karl Hallding and Johan Rockström at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Wednesday 9 June 2010, 09:30-12:00.

Top video: Peak fossil: Energy and the global welfare equation Kjell Aleklett, Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Global Energy Systems Group, Uppsala University.

The world as we have known it is changing. The fossil fuels that have predicated the matchless expansion of the 20th century show difficulties in keeping up with increasing demand. At the same time continued use of remaining fossil deposits risks pushing the world towards catastrophic climate changes.

Each of these fundamental issues — energy and climate — constitutes formidable security challenges for the global society. But the combination of the two may have consequences far beyond our imagination.

The purpose of this seminar is to explore how a combination of energy- and climate securities scenarios could be used to better understand the fundamental challenges that the world is facing, in order for us to be better prepared for a pallet of possible global and regional changes in the coming decades.
