Climate Change: Moving Forward

The final session at Saturdays climate change conference was a few closing remarks by Mike Robinson (Stop Climate Chaos Scotland) and the Moderator of the Church of Scotland.

  • Next year marks 30 years since the phrase ‘climate change’ was coined.
  • 50mph national speed limit would cut carbon emissions from driving by 30% overnight.
  • The problem with poverty is wealth. The problem with climate change is wealth.
  • For years people have said the economic bubble would burst, yet we continued to live in blissful ignorance, and are shocked now that it is bursting. Are we doing the same with climate change?
  • “There’s a storm coming up, and God is in the storm.”
  • “There is nothing so powerful as an idea whose time has come.”

  1. 50mph national speed limit would cut carbon emissions from driving by 30% overnight.

    Assuming people heed the limit, which is a rather naïve assumption. Realistically, I doubt it would have that much affect on many roads.

  2. @ Geoffrey: more people heed speed limits than you realise! I think its something that could be worth a try. I also think the statement is more to make a point of how much can be done in very simple ways.
