Newsflash: Professor Kevin Anderson scheduled to address #Manchester City Council on #climate change, Weds 30th Jan. at 10.00 a.m.

As this is a council meeting this is open to the public.  Prof. Anderson from the Univ of Manchester Tyndall Centre is an international authority on climate science.  He kindly wrote one of the two forewords to our report In Place of Growth, in which he made it very clear that we can either have economic growth or we can (just possibly) avoid a runaway rise in global temperatures.   It is very encouraging that Manchester City Council is giving him a platform and citizens of Manchester can make it clear to their councillors that this is an important issue for them that does require a fundamental change of direction in the city’s economic strategy, even though some of the necessary elements for that are already in place.
