I am a chemical engineer interested in seeking a practical response to the challenge of climate change. In particular, I am trying to focus on developments in accounting and (some of) the technical innovations that then become possible in an arena where there is no shortage of commentary (excuse the pun, some of it extremely heated), but short on agreement on how we best proceed from here.
Whether you accept climate change is not the issue, rather it is about finding a way to assign a price to an asset class (in this case, use of the atmosphere as a repository for waste) that we currently ignore in the economic models that have generate so much material wealth for us these last few centuries. If we can do this for the greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, we should be able to apply the same principles to the use of other resources such as water and nitrogen (as consumed in the fertilizer cycle). I will however leave a discussion of this to other authors !!
I live in London, have a wonderful loving wife and a great step son.
