This Thursday, take-no-prisoners environmental writer George Monbiot of The Guardian steps up to the podium at Second Nature, Nature’s archipelago in the virtual world of Second Life, to give a talk on climate change.
In his 2006 book Heat: How We Can Stop the Planet Burning, Monbiot argued for 90% emissions cuts by 2030 to stop dangerous climate change. With the UK and other governments struggling toward a consensus that 80% cuts must be made by 2050, we’ll see how he feels about the planet’s current prospects.
Monbiot speaks at 17:00 GDT (12:00 EDT). Second Life avatars can attend here.
