1st Meeting of the 181st Session (2001-2002)
In the Wolfson Suite, Ground
Edinburgh University Library
George Square, Edinburgh
On Monday 5th November 2001, at 7 pm
Global warming was first raised as an issue in the 1960s. It took scientists in the 1980s to persuade mainstream politicians to take it seriously. Now, those concerns and the need to respond are being challenged by the world's most powerful economy. What is the evidence and how should we act?
Nigel Griffiths, MP, established a campaign earlier this year with George Monbiot to highlight the threat of global warming and put pressure on the new US Republican administration to ratify the Kyoto protocols. This followed his examination of the evidence influencing President Bush and other research arising from the Rio Summit. Nigel Griffiths chairs a pilot project for energy audits and action programmes.
