Futures Forum: Climate change >> come and join the 'climate conversation' on Sidmouth's seafront on Saturday 28th November
Here is a report from the event:
On a very cold promenade in gale force winds several conversations took place on the eve of the Paris Climate Summit on Saturday 28th November. We met two climate sceptics who were willing to discuss briefly their belief that the whole climate change issue is a myth. We also had some interesting conversations with scientists and researchers from the Met Office and Exeter university and educationists raising awareness among school students. We also had many conversations with residents and visitors about what we can do to encourage our political leaders to take the steps needed to keep fossil fuels underground.
The UK is now producing more CO2 per citizen than any other country in the world. Living on the seafront helps us to sympathise with the plight of island nations facing elimination. These issues can be explored in more depth at Climate week.
Sidmouth was also represented at the mass gathering in London on 29th November.
