Sir David King, the UK Government's former Chief Scientific Advisor, has called for a high carbon price to be implemented globally. He calls on the UK Government to increase ambition for a net-zero emissions policy by 2045 and to start to repair the climate system.  He warns that time is no longer on our side and that policy and business action is critical in averting the severe climate threats facing humanity in the near future. We need deep and rapid emissions reductions, but there's too much CO2 in the atmosphere today so let's move beyond decarbonisation by researching and funding technologies to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.  King will discuss his plans for a "Centre for Climate Repair at Cambridge", to act as a global research and development hub to realise this goal.
