The climate science community has convinced many policymakers and politicians of the need to decarbonise the world economy in short order. Their case, and whether it is credible or not, is not the issue in this presentation, but rather some of the lessons of the recent history of technology evolution that should not be lost in the rush.

There are rules concerning the introduction of new technologies, and there are penalties for flouting them. If we are setting out to decarbonise the world economy, we should set out as if we mean to succeed, and not, as now, take actions that will certainly not succeed
