LGTAG are pleased to post a copy of Professor John Barry’s latest thoughts on Climate Change. Professor Barry of Queens University Belfast was a leading speaker at our President (Andrew Cassells) Conference in 2019. An extract from the conclusion is reproduced below. Thought provoking stuff? Please do look at the full 20 page piece which is available on the Green House Think Tank site here
Extract from Conclusion:
But we now know the following:
Austerity was a lie;
There is a magic money tree;
States and populations can act with speed, determination and at
scale for the common good when faced with an emergency;
Another world is possible.
And maybe, just maybe the pandemic has created the possibility for
thinking that it is now easier to imagine the end of capitalism than the end
of the world.
