This is about a regular meeting of Citizens' Climate Lobby starting at 7 pm on the fourth Tuesday of each month. The next meeting is on Tuesday 27 October.
I am pleased to announce that we have a guest speaker, Mr Richard Weller, who will tell us about the scale of the coming impacts of climate change. He will show how extreme events are worsening and how pressure for change is likely to build over the next ten years.
Richard has kindly stepped in at short notice owing to the postponement of the talk by Mark Coure MP.
Richard is a Structural Engineer with expertise in the area of extreme events such as wind, cyclone, storm, flood and coastal wave attack/erosion. He is experienced in interpreting difficult technical information for the general public.
This is an online meeting. Just before 7 pm on Tuesday 27 October please attend. CCL likes to make friends with politicians. There is nothing they like more than a big audience. To attend simply go to your computer or smart phone and paste or type zoom.us/j/7868786878 in the top window. If this is not satisfactory, you can use an ordinary phone by dialling 1800893423 or 0280156011 or 0370182005 or 0871501149, whichever is not busy, and quoting 7868786878 (78 68 78 68 78, three 78s and two 68s).
During the meeting, we introduce ourselves, tell of any good news, and long-time members explain to newcomers how Citizens' Climate Lobby advocacy for action on climate change complements protest demonstrations.
We will discuss plans for raising community awareness of actions that need to be taken to mitigate the looming climate catastrophe.
We entertain, educate and support each other in raising public awareness about the seriousness and urgency of acting to find solutions to the climate disruption problem by
- proposing a brilliant method of pricing fossil fuels
- helping each other with writing letters to newspapers and to community leaders
- form well-thought-out strategies for meetings with community leaders, including politicians, especially to encourage consensus on the urgent need to stem carbon emissions.
Our meetings are interesting and enjoyable, even though the underlying motive is serious and the involvement of people at the "grass-roots" level has never been more important.
Hoping to see you there!
