Environmental expert to chat climate change

GWTalks will be holding their next event this week, when environmentalist Peter Taylor will visit Frome’s Masonic Hall for a talk and Q&A session.

GWtalks is an open space to challenge social consensus through exploring topics.

Peter, an experienced environmental expert and adviser, will be giving the talk ‘Exploring Climate Change’ at the hall from 7.40pm on Thursday 23rd April.

Organiser Philippa Auton said, “This will be a unique event that challenges  the manmade climate change narrative; Peter supports that climate change is a natural phenomena. He brings an enlightened view, suggesting that the science is by no means settled.

“Peter’s expertise stretches from pollution and accident risk in nuclear operations, chemical pollution of the oceans and atmosphere, wildlife ecology and conservation, to renewable energy strategies and climate change.

“GWtalks create an open space to explore topics, inviting distinguished speakers who are experts in their field to share light and engage with the audience their specialist subject.”

Peter’s talk will be followed by a Q&A with refreshments and live music. Doors open at 7.40pm for an 8pm start.

Peter Taylor is a science analyst and policy advisor with over 30 years’ experience as a consultant to environmental NGOs (non government organisations), Greenpeace International, government departments and agencies, intergovernmental bodies, the European Commission, the European Parliament and the UN.

In addition to his advisory work, he has lectured  widely in universities and institutes in Britain, Germany, Sweden, the USA and Japan, and set up and directed the Oxford-based Political Ecology Research Group.

Tickets for the talk are available for £5 in advance from Hunting Raven Books, or are £7 on the door. Elders and students pay £3.
