Episode 2: Paul Allen
In episode two, Safia meets Paul Allen, project leader for the Zero Carbon Britain at the Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales. He talks to Safia about the science behind reaching a zero-carbon target by 2030 and how we can all become “Climate Change Makers”.
Paul Allen has been working on identifying and providing solutions for reducing carbon emissions for 30 years.
The reports from the Zero Carbon Britain Team in the last 10 years include “Rethinking the Future” which illustrates how making changes to our buildings, transport systems and behaviour, and by investing in a variety of renewable energy generation technologies suited to the UK (without a nuclear component), we can provide a reliable zero carbon energy supply without negatively impacting on quality of life. The Centre for Alternative Technology conducts research, has a Visitor Centre and offers a wide range of courses in Sustainable Living.
