Audio from the Cross Keys meeting Jan 31st – exploring Climate emergency. Images below are all referenced in the talk

City by city, town by town and now whole counties are declaring that we are facing a terrifying challenge to avert climate disaster. The 30 year ‘long emergency has began. I have collected a series of images and posters on the trends we are facing and hopefully this is fueling a deepening realization of the scale of the challenge before us.

Simply causing panic is not the attention. Received wisdom is telling us clearly that the only hope we can expect is that which might come directly from our own positive action. We need a plan, it needs to be understandable, communicable and it needs to be really effective. Tokenism is not what we need at this stage, but a concerted effort to move to concerted and co-ordinated effort
