Author Talk on 'Ending Fossil Fuels: Why Net Zero Is Not Enough' presented by Alberta Beyond Fossil Fuels

The term "net zero" has a vaguely comforting ring to it, suggesting a balance of carbon sources and sinks that can stabilize the climate while preserving the comfort and convenience of high energy consumption. But what would a net-zero world look like in practice? How would we achieve it? Whose interests would it serve?

In "Ending Fossil Fuels: Why Net Zero Is Not Enough," Author Holly Jean Buck identifies major shortcomings in the net-zero concept and explores the challenges and possibilities of fossil fuel phaseout.

Join Alberta Beyond Fossil Fuels on Zoom as we discuss net zero and the case for ending fossil fuel production with Holly Jean Buck.

Holly Jean Buck is a geographer and environmental social scientist. She works as an Assistant Professor of Environment and Sustainability at the University at Buffalo in Buffalo.
