#Manchester #climate nuggets July 15th 2013

Hi all,

Tomorrow sees the launch of a report on Manchester’s biodiversity by MCFly correspondent Dave Bishop AND the City Council’s scrutiny of its Annual Carbon “Reduction” Plan.  Why “reduction” in quote marks? Because by any reasonable measure, emissions went up 1% rather than down by 7%.  Come be part of the event from 12.45pm at Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount St, to be followed by the “Neighbourhoods Scrutiny Committee” meeting at 2pm in the Town Hall.  More details here.

Wanna flex your creative muscles, and maybe win £200?   Here’s the details of our short story contest all sorted.  Two thousand words (in English) on the subject “Manchester (UK) in a warmer world.”
