Is it time to recognise that it is too late to stop run-away climate change? What are the implications of this for the environment movement and for Green politics? What will life in a climate-changed world be like?
Speakers include Brian Heatley, a founder member of Green House Think Tank and former Green Party policy co-ordinator, John Foster, writer and associate philosophy teacher at Lancaster University and Stuart Parkinson, Executive Director of Scientists for Global Responsibility. Event chaired by Rupert Read, Chair of Green House. Coffee available from 10.30 am, Soup+bread lunch available after.
