Below you can find some selected quotes from the video interview.

 

“...I was invited as a keynote speaker for a roundtable discussion on industrial decarbonisation, and the roundtable by organised by the All Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group.”

 

“...when I was invited, I was excited about it, that I was going to present some form of evidence, or talk more broadly about industrial decarbonisation. And so I accepted the invite and we had the discussion and it was successful […] it was a positive experience for me, I learned a lot and I hope everyone who listened, everyone who was a part of that roundtable discussion also learned a lot.”

 

“I think it’s important for researchers to engage with Parliament once in a while, especially since, if you look at the UK, net zero carbon, net zero greenhouses gas, has been passed into law, and the ambition is to achieve it by 2050, so I think researchers who are doing research in climate change directly or indirectly should […] embrace the opportunities, to engage with Parliament to let them know about the signs, what the challenges are but most importantly, how they can be overcome.”
