Climate Change & You!

posted 26 Apr 2013, 01:05 by Unknown user

On SATURDAY 11 MAY at 7.30pm, a community forum, CLIMATE CHANGE & YOU!, will be presented by Peter Boyer, science journalist, Midj Jones, meteorologist and Phil Harrington, industry consultant on climate change and energy at the Delorine Commnity Complex, Alveston Drive, Deloraine.

We have been lucky enough to attract Peter Boyer to speak at this forum.  Peter is a very well known science journalist who has written a climate change column for the Mercury in Hobart for the past 5-6 years and was one of the first Al Gore trained presenters.

Phil Harrington will also be a presenter. Phil is an economist, policy analyst, strategy advisor, project manager and team leader with 27 years experience in energy businesses, consulting, state government, federal government and international organisations. Some key appointments included inaugural Senior Executive Manager with the Australia Greenhouse Office, and Division Head at the International Energy Agency in Paris. He established what is now the Carbon & Energy Team at pitt&sherry in 2008 and manages a 16-person team across the East Coast of Australia.

The third presenter is Dr Midj Jones who was a senior meteorologist with the Bureau of Meteorology in Tasmania and has become a strong advocate for action on climate change.

Please put 7.30 on May 11th at the Deloraine Community Centre on your calendar, turn off the TV, and come along to hear these very concerned speakers.

Admission is free.   This forum is supported by The Tasmanian Climate Change Office.
