Carbon, Oct 8

EVENT Completed – by Divest Cornwall 29th October

An evening of countywide CLIMATE SOLUTION networking. 

Using the inspiring “Do The Math” film as our starting point, we will be exploring ways in which the following facts could become ingredients in a Cornish Climate Solution recipe:

1 – the Cornwall County Pension Fund has £64.9 Million invested in the fossil fuel industry, and as a consequence is “underperforming” financially;
2 – there is a hugely important United Nations Climate Summit in Paris (COP21) in about 6 weeks time;
3. there is a MASSIVE mobilization of people happening around the world – a movement not only to help steer the COP21 Summit in helpful directions – BUT beyond COP21 – to build momentum for what happens next, irrespective of the outcome of Paris.

And, then we will explore how we in Cornwall might best cook up a contribution to that growing movement… The ambition is to have a full, nourishing and exciting evening (with a little bit of maths!)…..

EVENT Completed Join us October 30th as we attend:

Today at 18:00 Penryn Campus – Exchange Building (someone will be there to meet us by the library – Daphne Du Maurier building that was).

What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we’ll ever get to build a better world?

Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.

Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond.

The screening will be on Penryn Campus in the Exchange Building on 30th October at 6pm

Statement:

“Along with all people of goodwill, we are shocked and saddened by the horrific events which took place in Paris on Friday night.

However, we are also still committed and determined to cycle to Paris as originally planned, to support the goal of a successful climate agreement between world leaders. A binding and meaningful agreement on cutting carbon needs to be achieved if we are not to condemn billions of people to irreversible climate change and all the attendant impacts that that will bring.

The events on Friday change nothing with respect to the significance of the COP21 negotiations except to highlight some of the ways in which the struggle to control access to fossil fuels is already having repercussions close to home. If the motivation for the Paris attacks proves to stem from the troubles in Syria, it will be doubly sad, as their national instabilities have been at least partly caused by impacts of climate change.

Our presence in Paris will serve as a statement of solidarity with all who seek to pursue a peaceful resolution of world problems rather than resort to violence as a few desperate people did on Friday night. If we were to cancel our trip, the terrorists would have won, and the vast majority of humanity would have lost.

“The best response to terrorism is more democracy and openness”, as the Norwegian Prime Minister said after the tragic attack in Norway, and his words should guide us in our reaction to this tragedy. We will not abandon our shared values: liberté, egalité, fraternité.”
