  • Call for Presenters – Keeping History Above Water Keeping History Above Water – Annapolis October 29 – November 1 2017 An international gathering on adapting historic coastal communities to sea level rise Hosted by the City of Annapolis with Support from the Newport Restoration Foundation.

  • Past the finishing line 9th and final blog from COP 22 The marathon is over and I am now back in France having had a chance to sleep, draw breath and reflect on a remarkable COP. Why remarkable? Because having never had an official side event at the conference centre at previous COPs we managed no less than 4 in Marrakech. In Durban we held one ...
  • A fond farewell to Marrakech 8th Blog from COP 22 So it is almost over. Geoff and I packed up the display in the stand this afternoon but not before we had both had an interesting morning at our various side events and through networking. My morning started with an update from the UNFCCC Secretariat and then over to the Green Zone to the British Embassy ...
  • Moonshine! 7th Blog from Marrakech Two nights ago we were watching a super-super moon where the moon appeared bigger and brighter than for many years. And it will be many years before it happens again. This morning we had a little more moonshine in the form of Ban Ki-moon, the outgoing UN Secretary General. It was his last appearance at the ...
  • Inspirational or what ? Blog 6 from COP 22 The man who has given his all to defend the world from the effects of climate change spoke inspirationally this morning to an audience of at least 800. John Kerry, Secretary of State for the US Government, gave a hugely uplifting speech on the state of play with climate change despite there being absolutely no ...
  • How time flies when you are enjoying yourself! The 5th blog from Marrakech As usual it is quite hard to know exactly what is going on at the high level talks except for what one can glean from websites, the daily bulletin and so on but it is also necessary to find the time to read them! The first week has rushed by and we are already into ...
  • COP 22 UPDATE Nov 12, 2016 – The age of new cultures – Poken I had heard of Pokemon before I arrived here but never of Poken. Every booth and side event hall in the Blue zone is equipped with a small table-top tile and every delegate is given a hand shaped USB key which, on touching the tile, lights green indicating that it has downloaded all the information ...
  • The TRUMPet shall sound! Well, well just like Brexit –all against the odds! And his statement regarding climate change has sent a chill through the corridors of the Green and Blue Zones here in Marrakech. See this for example: So do we all pack up and go home – absolutely not. The determination to resist his statement is palpable. So from ...
  • COP 22 The first steps of the marathon An encouraging start to what is going to be a busy programme. The only downside was the rain which had come down in torrents all night and continued through the first half of the morning ruining my ambition to do the walk each day and forcing me to take a taxi to the Centre instead. ...
