Clive Searle, who has written about climate change and teaches the subject for GCSE and A Level is under no illusions..."Climate Change is real and it poses a threat to the very survival of human existence" he says.
Clive has travelled extensively, witnessing the problem first hand, particularly in the islands of Tuvalu, in the middle of the Pacific, where he noted that they are disappearing and heard of plans to move the whole population to Australia.
"Current climate change is a man-made problem" he explains "Thankfully, therefore, there are man-made solutions. But, only if we act now..."
Clive will be talking at a special public meeting of the Friends of Kersal Moor this Monday, 26th November at St Paul's Church on Moor Lane, covering subjects close to the heart of Salford, like floods, excess heat and more.
"The Friends of Kersal Moor have been organising Winter Talks for the last four years, related mainly to our environment" states the group "People may remember our last winter talk on Our Friends the Bees and their declining numbers.
"This year, we decided we would focus on the most important issue of our time: the rapid change in our climate" they add "We need to be educated about this, so we don't ignore the consequences and can make efforts to counteract them. We are hoping for an audience which is keen to learn and ask questions."
