Prof Iain Stewart: Planet Oil (BORDERS)

26th March @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The RSGS President and TV presenter traces the geological and technological tipping points that transformed oil from an unwanted waste product into a substance on which our modern world completely relies. Exploring the past, present and future story of our petroleum addiction, Iain asks if we really are coming to the end of the Hydrocarbon Age.
