Professor Steven Chu, former Energy Secretary under President Obama, will deliver the 2014 S T Lee Lecture on 10 November in Cambridge. The lecture will be chaired by Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, Vice Chancellor, University of Cambridge.

Science and technology such as the industrial and agricultural revolutions have profoundly transformed the world. In his talk, Professor Chu will first discuss an “epidemiological” approach of assessing the risks of climate change, and then provide a perspective on how we can mitigate the risks with science, technology and policy, so that sustainable energy becomes the low cost option.
