Something for the Weekend 26 October 2012 #Manchester #Climate

To kick off the weekend, a Halloween-inspired  joke:

Q: Why did the haunted house not like rain?
A: Because it dampened his spirits.

And this weekend, the only “eco” events we know of is this –

Friday 26th at 6:00pm at Biospheric Foundation, Irwell House, East Philip Street, Salford M3.
Exhibition by Jane Lawson and collaborators coming up at the Biospheric Foundation in Salford: Bioremediation II and III. If you’ve ever wanted to know what the architects of the global financial system look like after being detoxified with oyster mushrooms, now’s your chance….

Sat 27th, 2pm The Goldilocks Planet “In the struggle to cope with climate change, what lessons can be learnt from Earth’s long history? Two leading geologists explain the important insights science is now able to give us about dramatic changes in Earth’s distant past, and the delicate balance that ensures our planet is ‘not too hot, not too cold’, but ‘just right’ to sustain life.” Blackwell’s Bookshop, The Precinct Centre, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9RN Part of the Manchester Science Festival. No need to book.

If you know of other weekend events that are about “climate” (and that includes food growing, or cycling or whatever), then let us know and we can include them in future “Something for the Weekend”s…
