Climate Change and the Need to Change Behaviour in the West by Prof Kevin Anderson; Screening and Discussion

We are watching a lecture by Prof Kevin Anderson

We will have a discussion on the points he raises in his talk

We will be exploring what issues matter to people

We will be exploring what differences people can make

 

Climate change is about how the way that human beings collectively are impacting the ecology of the world, in particular via burning fossil fuels which produce carbon dioxide and practices that increase greenhouse gases that result in changes in temperature and weather patterns. Climate change is one of the most significant problems which the world faces yet because of its massive and diffuse nature approaches to dealing with it are caught in a miasma of differal and avoidance.
