Hot topic

Earth Hour is just round the corner this Saturday 27th March at 8.30. It has snuck up on me this year, perhaps it’s the disappointment of Copenhagen all the posturing and no result. Although even the most optimistic of those around us did not expect much from that summit.

Skeptical though we may be that world leaders will get it right, we can do our own little bit to show we care. It’s time to turn out the lights and try not to burn down the house by lighting all those candles the kids love.

Did you miss Bob Parker’s free public forum Hot topic – are we being climate smart? It’s not to late have your say on our Christchurch’s draft Climate Smart Strategy at a series of information meetings being held between 24th of March and the 20th of April.

Become informed on these issues and explore our Earth Hour and Sustainable living pages and check out catalogue resources on climate change.

    I’m impressed at the book covers shown, very visually appealing.

    I think this publishing area – ‘science-y’ titles covering climate change – has in the past suffered from dire covers (therefore less appealing to be picked up by the browser). I’m impressed that publishers have cottoned on to visual appeal to encourage folks to read about climate change and learn what is going on – whichever side of the debate you are on!
