Who's got coal, oil and gas and who's consuming it?
Why is there a crisis in the fossil fuel industries?
What are the prospects for a green future when fossil fuels are so cheap?
Nikki Jones, researcher/writer on global energy will be giving an overview of trends in fossil fuel production and consumption at the Salt Cafe on St George's Road, near Jacob's Wells roundabout, BS1 5UJ. She will present the facts and figures and put the decarbonisation challenge in perspective. This is a chance to understand the current crisis in the fossil fuel industries. There will be opportunities for questions throughout.
