This event has been cancelled.

Intelligence Squared are sorry to inform you that, due to unforeseen circumstances, their debate Climate Emergency: 2050 is Too Late for Net Zero, which was due to take place on September 8 has now been cancelled.

George Monbiot, Lucy Yu and Bim Afolami MP debate how we can achieve this goal and what side of the argument might be the right one. Is weaning the entire global economy off carbon-based fuels on this sort of timescale sounds ambitious. Or is it not ambitious enough?

Opponents say there are things countries could do to lower emissions more quickly but that’s not the same as getting to zero.

So who's right and who's wrong? Join us with this special debate to find out.
