Transition Culture has moved

I no longer blog on this site. You can now find me, my general blogs, and the work I am doing researching my forthcoming book on imagination, on my new blog.

If I Were Not in Nottingham for the Transition Cities Conference I Would be…

If you are not coming to Nottingham for the Transition Cities conference, you would do very well to attend this wonderful event in London, a crash course in the latest science of climate change.  The event is the precursor to the launch of a report called ‘Climate Safety’, modelled on the ‘Climate Code Red’ report.  Essential stuff.  Full details below…

On Thursday 27th November, The Public Interest Research Centre will present the Climate Safety report at Friends Meeting House, Euston, London.

Arctic sea ice melting away faster than anyone had predicted is just one of the accelerating impacts of climate change. The quickening pace of change is telling us that the climate is more sensitive than almost anyone thought.

The ‘Climate Safety’ report gives a clear and simple summary of the latest science, and shows how our current handling of the problem has exposed us to serious and growing risks.

Modelled on the Australian ‘Climate Code Red’ report, ‘Climate Safety’ delivers a clear message that to have any chance of maintaining a safe climate, we must rapidly decarbonise our society, preserve global sinks, and address the problem with an unprecedented degree of seriousness.

Even with a commitment to 80% carbon cuts by 2050, “Climate Safety” warns that our current policy response does not match up to the scale of the challenge. Join us to discuss finding a way to get beyond “politics-as-usual” and achieve a full, emergency response.
Join the panel of speakers:

* Caroline Lucas
* George Monbiot
