Dr Mark Diesendorf is an Associate Professor and Deputy Director of the Institute of Environmental Studies at the University of NSW, Sydney. His work has centred around renewable electricity and his research shows that, for Australia, the transition is affordable and achievable. Through hourly computer simulations and the development of varying scenarios, research suggests, we could transition to renewable electricity systems based on commercially available materials - integrating this on a large scale into electricity supply demand systems. The myths disseminated by climate deniers have been busted.

On Tuesday, April 8th, Dr Diesendorf will be holding a public lecture discussing his research findings, and his new book Sustainable Energy Solutions for Climate Change will also be on sale.

We're in an age now where what we need really is to have open and unemotional discussions around what we can do to live more sustainably. It doesn't really matter anymore what one thinks will or won't happen, we are using resources that will run out, who cares in whose lifetime, they are finite and we possess the ability to choose what we think, ultimately, will be the best.

Attending open public lectures such as these is a good way to become more informed on the subject, no matter what your views are. It is always interesting to meet people who have completed massive amounts of research and listen to what they have learnt.
