This weekend, Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th of May, in London hosts the International Climate Conference. It's free and it's informative with expert speakers ranging across a wide remit of topics. You can come and go as you like. Last year I went with a couple of specific questions I wanted to find answers to on issues that I felt I didn't know enough about, sat in on a few talks, dipped into a few workshops, bought a couple of books, and left far the wiser with my questions answered. It's one of those situations where you wish you could be in many places at once - such is the choice of seminars and workshops.
Topics include: Climate Science How bad, how fast?; Climate Change and Development; Climate Change, the biggest issue of Global Justice and human rights?; Green Taxes vs Carbon Rationing; CC & Aviation; CC & Transport; Solutions; Raising Awareness in Eastern Europe; CC & workers rights; Personal Action; Contraction & Convergence; CC & Health; CC & Faith; Can we avoid dangerous CC & maintain growth?; Carbon Trading; CC & Biodiversity; Bio-fuels; Future of Coal; Climate Disinformation; Nuclear: another energy is possible; CC & Deforestation; CC & the GLA; CC & Islam; Peak Oil; Carbon Trading; How to get a strong Climate Bill; Prospects for the Bali Talks and the Kyoto process post 2012; The Climate Camp; Carbon offsets, the debate; China and India, the emissions time bomb; Climate Campaigning in the Arab World and more....
