This year's Clerk Maxwell lecture was a great success, thanks to all of you who attended and participated in this slightly unorthodox lecture to seek the IET consensus pathway in the UK's 2050 Calculator. Possibly the most audience participation ever in a Prestige Lecture, the discussion could have gone on all night!
