Carbon Rationing is one of the essential elements of a new report from the Public Interest Reseach Centre, being launched in London on 27th November 2008, details below.

The essential question is : do we need the Arctic ? And if so, how do we navigate the risk factors associated with losing it ?

All will be revealed at Friends Meeting House, 173 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ on 27th November 2008 at 7pm.

Do come along. It should be both terrifying and electrifying.

'How do we get back to climate safety?'

27th November, 7pm at Friends Meeting House, Euston

No screaming, no panic, no doom, no gloom. Just a short and simple summary of the latest climate science followed by a discussion of what we're going to do about it.

On Thursday 27th November 2008, The Public Interest Research Centre will launch the report "Climate Safety" at Friends Meeting House, Euston, London. A panel of speakers Caroline Lucas, George Monbiot, Kevin Anderson, Jeremy Leggett and Tim Helweg-Larsen - will be discussing the question 'How do we get back to climate safety?'

With Arctic sea ice melting away faster than anyone had predicted, the climate seems more sensitive than almost anyone thought, placing us in the middle of a climate emergency that cannot be ignored or brushed aside.

'Climate Safety' gives a clear and simple summary of the latest science, and shows how our current handling of the problem has exposed us to serious and growing risks. The report delivers a clear message that to have any chance of maintaining a safe climate, we must rapidly decarbonise our society, preserve global sinks, and address the problem with an unprecedented degree of seriousness.

"Climate Safety" warns that even our current policy response, a commitment to 80% carbon cuts by 2050, does not match up to the scale of the challenge. Join us to discuss finding a way to get beyond "politics-as-usual" and achieve a full, emergency response.
