* They don’t believe that humans are to blame for global warming or are climate change sceptics
These private emails and documents allegedly exchanged between some of the world’s leading climate scientists, are being used by some as evidence of climate change lies.
Here is a link to the e-mails, see what you think.
Whenever we go to a conference and ask the audience to decide an issue, global warming will be high on the agenda.
I looked at some soon-to-be-released research the BBC has done about what issues you think are important, and there’s climate change in the top two or three in whichever country you care to name.
Or maybe there’s another explanation.
Whatever we do, whatever debate we come up with, we can’t seem to interest you in the issue of climate change.
We discussed it at the meeting today – we already had a programme half-fixed on Copenhagen.
At the time of the meeting we had about twelve comments on the debate.
* We’re not doing our job properly : we’re not reflecting the conversations you’re having, we aren’t framing the debates in a way you want to engage with..
* It’s too big and complicated and overwhelming an issue for us to “get our heads round”..
* People – and that means all of us i suppose – are selfish. We don’t think it will affect us, we just don’t care enough…
* We want to make a difference, really we do, we just don’t know how…
So on Friday we are going to discuss it. Guests include :
– Kushal Yadav from the Centre for Science and Environment in Delhi..
– Mark Kenber from the Climate Group in London..
– Daniel C. Esty from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental studies…
We’ll ask whether the Copenhagen summit should go ahead….and you can tell us what debate you want to hear that will engage you..
