To save human society from climate disaster, we need to stop burning carbon-based fossil fuel by 2050. Hong Kong depends heavily on fossil fuel to give energy to the city. How is it possible to live without burning carbon? The talk will present ideas about how it could be achieved and discuss how everyone could contribute to the zero carbon target.
