The ECRN has the privilege of connecting many renowned researchers across a wide variety of disciplines. All of them are united by a commitment to educate and innovate in the field of energy and climate research. In our new podcast series, we'll be speaking to our members about their work. Our aim is to make their complex but vital work accessible to a general audience.

Dr Colm Kearns hosts a discussion between aviation expert Dr Cathal Guiomard and engineer and emissions expert Professor Barry McMullin about the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the aviation industry and the long term ramifications this has for climate change. They debate the merits and detriments of various strategies mooted to balance vibrant aviation with combating climate change. This is Part 2 of a 2 Part Series.
