THE HUTTON SERIES IN BRIEF
James Hutton, the father of modern geology, was the executor of Adam Smith’s will and a frequent visitor to Panmure House.
The discussions held there then, at the dawn of the industrial revolution, resonate strongly with those required now as we grapple with a global energy use transition.
This series is designed to provide open discourse around energy, climate change and resource use and availability, in recognition of the increasing need for reasoned debate between industry, NGOs, government and the public.
The Hutton Series on Climate Change is a series of events taking place across 2020-21 at Adam Smith’s Panmure House, bringing together a diverse cross-section of experts, business leaders, scientists, and concerned citizens in the service of one simple aim:
to identify ten key priorities, innovations & actions to mitigate the climate crisis.
