Addition: Video of Pearman's lecture. Port Phillip Conservation Council contains a freakishly well-informed collection of environmental activists and is an entertaining and instructive organisation to attend ordinary meetings at. On 22 October, however, they have an additional drawcard in Dr Graeme Pearman who was for a long time a CSIRO insider.
Internationally renowned climate scientist and former Chief of CSIRO’s Atmospheric Research, Dr. Graeme Pearman is guest speaker at Port Phillip Conservation Council Inc. Annual General Meeting
Monday 22nd October
Long Beach Place Chelsea Community Centre
15 Chelsea Rd. Chelsea
(Melways Map 97 B1)
Port Phillip Conservation Council Inc have asked Dr. Pearman to speak on what to expect locally and globally at various temperature scenarios; tipping points; how the insurance industry might deal with climate change; and how the climate science community has dealt with the challenges of getting its message heard.
Dr. Pearman’s speech will precede the AGM and guests are invited to remain for the AGM and supper.
[Sheila Newman recommends this organisation for the striking expertise of its lay members - well worth joining, contributing to and learning from. - Ed.]
