Kim Stanley Robinson's 2007 Google Tech Talks lecture on climate change

There’s an insightful hour-long video posted on YouTube of acclaimed Martian science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson giving a 2007 Google Tech Talks lecture on climate change. He discusses strategies for decarbonizing our civilization, “focusing on social questions, cleaner energy and transport, mission architectures, possibilities of geo-engineering, and the important role that Google can have in all these as world leader in information technologies.”

I’m curious to see whether Robinson calculates and discloses his carbon burn for traveling to and attending Aussiecon 4, the 68th World Science Fiction Convention, to be held in Melbourne in September 2010. He’s a Guest of Honour!
