This is a recording of Dr. Anderson’s plenary lecture for the Climate Action Task Force of the American Association of Geographers‘ annual meeting on April 8 2020. Due to the coronavirus, the meeting was fully virtual (#VirtualAAG). Although the meeting was much smaller than recent (in-person) ones, it was still quite sizeable: it had about 200 sessions, and more than 1,100 participants and attendees.
Kevin Anderson is Professor of Energy and Climate Change at the Universities of Manchester (United Kingdom) and Uppsala (Sweden). He is also a long-time analyst of aviation-related emissions and a champion of flying less.
