Climate Change

Image result for london underwaterWent to a talk Thursday in Saxmundham by Prof John Midwinter. He showed a series of powerpoint slides which outlined the evidence that the climate is changing. The CO2 levels in the atomosphere are at the highest levels than in hundreds of thousands of years.

Many still are climate change skeptics. Don’t believe the evidence ¬†and so don’t see any reason for change. Looking at the ‘problem’ in a different way might help.

Let’s assess the risk and then manage it. What can we do personally, locally, regionally, nationally and internationally in the context of risk management?

Can we afford to ignore the risks ( wild weather, droughts, floods, sea level rise, large migrations of people, whole ecosystems being threatened, food security threats, and so on).

Will be interesting to hear what is agreed in Paris if anything. If Kyoti and Copenhagen are anything to go by then not enough soon enough.

We need to act locally starting with ourselves, now!

Then join others and be the change.
