a briefing for environmental campaigners
 
with Tom Athanasiou
 
3.30-5pm Thursday 9 August
 
Friends of the Earth, 312 Smith street, Collingwood (near Johnston Street). #86 tram from the City.
 
The emerging scientific consensus tells us we have very little time to act if we honestly expect to avoid a global climate catastrophe. To keep below even a 2-degree target, radical cuts in local and global greenhouse gas emissions are required.
 
Tom Athanasiou is executive director of EcoEquity (www.ecoquity.org), a US-based climate think-tank which works closely with church, aid agencies and environment organisations. He is the author of books including 'Divided Planet: The Ecology of Rich and Poor',' Dead Heat: Global Justice and Global Warming' and the forthcoming 'Justice Within Limits: A New Deal for the Greenhouse Century'.
