Member Parliament, Sweeden
Session: Energy crisis –measures to tackle climate change?
Elsa Widding is a Member of the Swedish Parliament. She holds an MSc in Civil Engineering and a degree from Insead. Elsa has an extensive experience in the energy industry, as well as working for the Ministry of Industry. Elsa has played a crucial role in large acquisitions in the transmission grid sector and has conducted expert interviews and written numerous articles published in business papers and leading newspapers.
Elsa is the author of ” The Climate Circus” and “Common Sense concerning Energy and Climate”
With Widding’s background in the energy industry, she warned against Vattenfall’s sale of coal-fired power plants in Germany instead of finding a way to make them fossil-free. Her two books take a scientific approach to the climate issue.
Elsa’s lecture will provide you with a broader insight into the scientific research in this area. There is a lot of good scientific documentation that has a completely different message about the relationship between CO2 and climate than what the prevailing narrative tells us.
