The phone against global warming

Next Tuesday, December 19, the Rainforest Information Centre will host a Climate Study Telephone Conference featuring Philip Sutton, convenor of the Greenleap Strategic Institute.

The telephone conference series brings perspectives on climate change to a wide audience across Australia without requiring people to travel in a carbon intensive way. Cool.

This conference is called Avoiding Climate Disaster: How big should the cuts be?

Philip Sutton will argue that the only practical course of action is to cut emissions to zero and to also take CO out of the air because there is already too much CO in the air.

Talks are free except for the cost of the call. (All you need to buy is an international calling card from any newsagency or get a cheap long distance calling account through a website like With the right phone card, the 90 minute session should only cost you about $4.)

This innovative community sharing of knowledge runs from 7-8.30pm.
