The vehemently anti-nuclear green movement and the (often energy industry funded) anti-renewables lobby share culpability for the fog of misinformation surrounding an important path to reducing the carbon intensity of our energy supply. This talk aims to shine the spotlight of reason in an attempt to cut through the murk.
Tim Bastable has been involved in environmental issues since a night of malt whiskey and conversation with Dave McTaggart onboard the Rainbow Warrior in Lerwick Harbour in the mid-1970's. He's campaigned on various issues throughout his life and recently worked as writer and researcher on sustainability writing about climate change, renewables, and the politics of sustainability. He has helped run permaculture design courses and been involved in communal low impact living for many years.
Current interests include the USA corporate campaigns to "muddy the climate change waters", monitoring the covert and overt policy changes on energy and climate in the present UK government, and realistic pathways to sustainability.
