    18:00 - 19:00
The IEA Book Club is delighted to host Professor Dieter Helm, who will be discussing his latest book “Net Zero: How We Stop Causing Climate Change”. This webinar will take place on Wednesday 23rd September at 18:00 BST, and will be chaired by Professor Syed Kamall, IEA Academic and Research Director.

In his latest work, Dieter Helm addresses the action we all need to take to tackle the climate emergency: personal, local, national and global. Reducing our own carbon consumption is the first step. Helm argues that we, the ultimate polluters, should pay based on how much carbon the products we buy produce. We need a carbon price, and one that applies to everything and everywhere, from flights, to food and farming.

The goal of net zero carbon emissions needs a rethink and this book sets out how to do it in a plan that could and would work. Do this and we make no further contribution to global warming, in a way that embraces sustainable economic growth and does not harm other aspects of the environment in the process. There is a solution and we must find it. Everything is at stake.
