Global warming is not only taking hold but speeding up. The Anturus team travel to Iceland to explore what can be done to control the crisis. Can energy from renewable sources match the amounts we now use? Can we capture carbon from the atmosphere to cool the climate? The effects of global warming on Iceland are profound. What can Iceland teach us about our changing climate?
Humans have been setting things on fire for millennia – for warmth, light, power, and most recently, electricity. Join the Royal Institution of Great Britain to find out why we need to stop, how we know the impact of burning fossil fuels, and what we must investigate to meet our energy needs in the future. In this exciting show, packed with demonstrations, explore the chemistry of burning fossil fuels, especially the production of carbon dioxide (CO2); how our understanding of the effects of CO2 on the climate has grown; and the physics and chemistry of storing electricity in longer-lasting, smaller, more powerful batteries.
