[UPDATE 7.15am Mon 1st - Prof Anderson has informed us that the slot has been cancelled.]
Professor Kevin Anderson of the Tyndall Centre(recently interviewed by Manchester Climate Monthly) and Professor Nick Pidgeon (Environmental Psychology, Cardiff) will be on the Today programme, Monday 1st October at 8.40am.
They will be talking about an event on Monday evening at the Royal Festival Hall called “50 months and counting,” and a series of articles due to be out in the Guardian on the same day. [Update: Save your £1.20 -it's buried deep in the G2 pullout section. You may not even have more luck online]
The interview, event and articles relate to the “100 months club” – a programme launched by New Economics Foundation 4 years ago based on the assessment there was roughly 100 months left to reverse the growth in carbon dioxide emissions. Professor Anderson been asked to talk about “what this means for us today in terms of action we need to do to reduce our emissions and what happens if we don’t.”
We’ve seen an (embargoed until tomorrow) preview of his article, and it’s typically robust stuff…
Should be interesting. steadystatemanchester.net, anyone?
