Bar Book Club does The Big Switch



According to the IPCC, humanity has roughly 1000 days in which global greenhouse gas emissions must peak in order for them to be halved by 2030. As EU vice-president Frans Timmermans said at COP26 last year: "If we fail [my one-year-old grandson] will fight with other human beings for water and food. That’s the stark reality we face. So 1.5C is about avoiding a future for our children and grandchildren that is unliveable." What is to be done?

In The Big Switch, Australian clean technology engineer Saul Griffith lays out a detailed plan for de-carbonising our economy. You can learn more about Saul and his plan here and here. The Bar Book Club will meet to discuss it on Wednesday, 3 August at 5.30pm in the boardroom of Level 22 Chambers, 52 Martin Place.
