How many trees offset a car commute (Reading Climate Festival)

November 13 @ 12.00 pm - 1.30 pm


This talk reviews the relative importance of sources of CO2 emissions, before exploring methods of mitigation. It focuses on the role of trees in particular, and their impact in absorbing CO2 emissions related to car commuting.

It is based on the chapter on Global Limits in the book Megatrends and how to survive them by Patricia Lustig and Gill Ringland.

There will be time for a Q&A on the implications for the Reading area.

Reading Climate Festival is a week long programme of free events to inspire action on climate change, curated by Reading Climate Action Network.
