Our panel of environmental writers and experts will discuss how to stop climate breakdown, at this livestreamed event.

About this event

In May, a five-month Guardian investigation revealed how the world’s leading oil and gas companies are quietly planning scores of “carbon bomb” oil and gas projects that would drive the climate past internationally agreed temperature limits – with catastrophic global impacts.

In effect, these firms are placing multibillion-dollar bets against humanity – and if governments don’t act now, they will continue to cash in while the world burns. How can the fossil fuel giants be forced to stop these carbon bombs? What must happen next in order to avoid total devastation?

Our panel of speakers, with chair Guardian columnist Zoe Williams; the Guardian’s environment correspondent Matthew Taylor; Uplift director and founder Tessa Khan; and Leave it in the Ground Initiative (LINGO) director Kjell Kuehne, will discuss the explosive revelations.

Running time: 60 minutes
