Sir Patrick Vallance Briefs MPs On Climate Change

Daisy Noott, one of our lovely volunteers, was kind enough to bring this to our attention; the briefing on climate change given by Sir Patrick Vallance, the government’s chief scientific adviser. She comments:

As part of my work outside of Word Forest, I am involved in a project on the link between Climate Change and Wellbeing. During my research I came across this All-Party Parliamentary Group presentation. During this event, parliamentarians received presentations from the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor, the Met Office, Cambridge Zero, and the Chief Scientific Advisor at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

The various speakers shared some startling figures and graphs showing the impact climate change is having on the UK and the world, as well as some fairly depressing predictions of what may come if we continue on our current path. However on a more positive note, the presentations also included some clear and achievable changes that could easily be made to mitigate these issues.’

It was a shame that only 70 MPs attended (as noted in this article in the Guardian). You can watch it here, and the speakers’ presentations are available to download from this page:
