Conservatives new Energy and Climate Change man
The Conservative party has appointed Greg Clark as their Shadow Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. This is a pretty un-enviable job, how to secure our energy supply and reduce carbon emissions is bad enough, but to push through useful measures with a nuclear-sceptic public is a real challenge.
I work on projects related to technology and taxonomy at the Natural History Museum, and as an advisor for the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature. My interests are in entomology (stick insects, cockroaches and insect acoustics) and how technology can change the way research is done in biology and museums. Big fan of open access, open data and open hardware.
