Transition Town Hastings and St Leonards Salon are very excited that Jeremy Leggett is coming to speak in Hastings. He will discuss his new book The Winning of the Carbon War – available to download for free online whose final chapter will coincide with the Paris Climate Talks in December – an event that has enormous significance for every living thing on the planet.
Jeremy was born and educated in Hastings and is one of the world’s foremost climate researchers, entrepreneurs and renewable energy activists. He is the author of four books on Energy, climate and Peak Oil, the founder of Solar Century (the UK’s largest independent solar company) and one of the founders of the Carbon Tracker initiative which has led to the Divestment away from fossil fuels movement.
We are asking attendees to make a donation to SOLAR AID which he founded in 2006.
We will also show This Changes Everything film after the talk at approx 8:30pm.
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.
