12.007 Geobiology (MIT) 12.007 Geobiology (MIT)

Description

The interactive Earth system: biology in geologic, environmental and climate change throughout Earth history. Since life began it has continually shaped and re-shaped the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere and the solid earth. This course introduces the concept of 'life as a geological agent' and examines the interaction between biology and the earth system during the roughly 4 billion years since life first appeared.

to water? Panel I

Description

Dr Karen Morrow, Swansea Law Department; Dr Bettina Lange, University of Oxford; Dr Mark Shepheard, McGill University give talks for the 1st Panel of the Economic Rights and Regulatory Regimes: Is there still a 'right' to water? conference. PLEASE NOTE: The quality of recording deteriorates significantly after 55 minutes and so has had to be cut short. We apologise for the inconvenience. Legal and environmental experts introduce the fundamental issues in water rights and water law, and discuss the findings of a pilot study entitled 'Rethinking water rights through stewardship in Anglia and the Northeast of England'. Climate change, through more severe weather events, including both droughts and floods, is making water resource management ever more difficult.

Who Leads, Who Follows? A Multi-level Perspective of Energy Transitions in the Transport Sector

Description

Part of the Transitioning towards Electric Vehicles seminar series held at the Transport Studies Unit of the Oxford University Centre for the Environment. The electrification of the vehicle fleet involves a mass of actions to be taken by European, national and local government, a range of industries and consumers. It involves coordination between transport and energy policy if the benefits of decarbonisation are to be realised. The changes must also fit (and compete for resources) with broader policy imperatives such as the economy and health. This talk draws on results from a study of climate change governance which explored the roles and expectations of decision-makers in different organisations at different governance levels working upwards and outwards from four city regions in England Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/
