CAN bring Clive Hamilton to Newcastle

Climate Action Newcastle have organised for Australian author and public intellectual Clive Hamilton to present their 2010 Annual Lecture.

The lecture will be at 7pm on tomorrow night (Tuesday 23rd March) at Newcastle City Hall, King Street Newcastle.

Clive is a renowned public intellectual and academic who founded and directed the progressive think tank The Australia Institute from 1994 to 2008. He is the author of many excellent books including 'Affluenza', 'Scorcher: The Dirty Politics of Climate Change' and his latest book 'Requiem for A Species: Why we resist the truth about climate change'.

The last year has seen a surge in climate scepticism and apathy. Clive will discuss what is behind this phenomenon, and why we don't actually have to take climate change lying down!
