TEDxDubbo - Prof Susan Pond - Can Human Ingenuity Make Oil?

Dr Susan Pond AM FTSE is Adjunct Professor of the Dow Sustainability Program at the United States Study Centre, which is based at The University of Sydney. The Program brings together Australian and international academic, business and policy experts in order to address a range of sustainability challenges. Dr Pond's area of interest is the development of the advanced transportation biofuels industry, including the critical success factors required for commercially viable production at scale. TEDxDubbo focused attention on what we call FACETS -- Food, Agriculture, Climate, Energy, Topsoil and Sustainability. These FACETS are actually potent ideas shared by everyday people with an interest in these disciplines. In many of these topics there is an awareness campaign; the aim of bringing our community together united against catastrophic failures in our food-chain, environment and health. It is worth mentioning that we are also indebted to our natural systems for our economic wealth. Failures in Food, Agriculture, Climate, Energy, Topsoil and Sustainability are not just a local issue -- they are a global concern. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
