JCC Opinion Soup: Climate Change

Compelling discussion on climate change with Lucy Sielgle, Mayer Hillman, Robert Rabinowitz and Mark Levene. Led by Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland.

As the UN’s recent report finds that climate change may bring “abrupt and irreversible” damage, what are the next steps required to combat the threat of global warming? A pragmatic approach, in which all of us can make our own personal contributions – such as using energy-efficient light bulbs or driving electric cars? Or a fundamental overhaul of our very way of life, requiring radical action from government and big business? If so, is the world ready for such drastic action?

Join speakers Lucy Siegle, Ethical Living columnist at The Observer; Mayer Hillman, a leading environmentalist; Robert Rabinowitz, director of Climate Exchange (Europe) Ltd, a company dealing in carbon emissions trading; and Mark Levene, co-editor of Surviving Climate Change, The Struggle to Avert Global Catastrophe. This compelling discussion will be chaired by Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland.
