Dr Paul Deane

1 Comment

On January 17th last, we had the pleasure of hosting Dr Paul Deane to talk about Ireland’s energy futures.

Paul’s talked about nuclear energy, classical fossil energy and renewable energy, and what decisions lie in store for Ireland in the coming decades.

As Paul was eager to point out, there are no silver bullets. Even a best case scenario will not rid us of fossil fuels entirely, but there is an imperative to reduce our dependence on fossils fuels, given the dire impacts on health and the environment.

Paul is a passionate speaker and it was a terrific talk all round. Our thanks again to Paul for enlightening us.

Paul has graciously shared his slides with us. I am attaching the slides here, along with some photos from the meeting.
