The Climate Emergency

Wednesday 22nd September at 7:30pm

A meeting co-hosted by St Mary’s Church and Threlkeld Activities Association about the dangers facing the world by climate change.  As forest fires and extreme flood events are becoming more common it is more important than ever that we think about what we can do to help. There will be a series of short talks on climate science (Terry Sloan), the environmental consequences (Mike Hambrey), the political perspective (Jo Alberti) and practical solutions (Richard Waller).



The talks will be followed a Q&A session and an opportunity to share knowledge on how to reduce our carbon footprints and counter global heating.
