Green skepticism

  • Academieraadzaal, Ghent University Voldersstraat 9 Gent, Vlaanderen, 9000 Belgium (map)

Not skepticism about climate change, but ecomodernism, “an environmental philosophy which argues that humans can protect nature by using technology to decouple anthropogenic impacts from the natural world”, as Wikipedia defines it. How can state of the art nuclear energy help us to decarbonize our energy supply. And how can genetic engineering help us to improve the food quality, increase the yields, reduce pesticide and fertilizer use, create plants that can survive climate change, and why are so many in the uninformed population dead against it.
