    Dr Rob Lawlor (University of Leeds)

    Could rationing be effective in reducing carbon emissions? Might rationing be necessary, as a means of reducing emissions rapidly?

    Would rationing be more effective and fairer than the carbon trading schemes we have now? Should government policies reflect the scarcity that we should recognise if the more serious impacts of climate change are to be avoided?

    Rob Lawlor is a lecturer in applied ethics at the University of Leeds. He has recently published research on equitable rationing, as a response to climate change.

    The meeting will be in-person at Seven Arts, 31A Harrogate Road, Leeds LS7 3PD. It will not be broadcast over Zoom.

    The price of everything is going up. Please can everyone who can afford it remember to bring 2 or 3 pound coins along. These small donations are needed to fund the cost of the venue.
