When There's No More Oil...the next great economic revolution

Wednesday 2 October, 6.30pm
Shaw Library, Old Building, LSE 

Oil and other fossil fuels provide over 85% of the worlds energy needs. Supply is running out however, and in this instance, the UK and other nations are expected to turn to the dirtier fossil fuels, which will only worsen the earth's already beleaguered ecosystems. There is an environmentally friendly solution however - hydrogen, and the hydrogen energy web.

Jeremy Rifkin will be speaking on When There's No More Oil...the next great economic revolution on Wednesday 2 October at LSE. He will argue that hydrogen, when extracted from natural sources, becomes a form of energy that never runs out, and that the hydrogen energy web is the next great technological, commercial, and social revolution in history.

This lecture celebrates the launch of Jeremy Rifkin's new publication The Hydrogen Economy: creating the worldwide energy web and redistributing power on earth. This lecture is free and open to all with no ticket required. 

When There's No More Oil...the next great economic revolution is on Wednesday 2 October at 6.30pm in the Shaw Library, Old Building, LSE
