Join us at our open meeting at the Pig's Palace, 37 White Rock, Hastings, TN34 1JL. Facing up to Climate Reality: Honesty, Disaster and Hope was published earlier in 2019 by the Green House Think Tank. This talk will explore some of the major challenges we must meet if we are serious about facing up to climate reality – honesty about the true scale of climate disasters, how we respond to this emotionally with a radical hope, the need for rapid decarbonisation across society, and for a new industrial strategy that can enable transition to a post-growth economy. Jonathan Essex is a member of the Green House Think Tank and a Green County Councillor in Surrey. Jonathan will draw on the collective works in the Facing up to Climate Reality book and his work on researching, campaigning and calling for sufficient change to address the climate emergency.
