David Ellis – well-known environmentalist in Victoria’s Warrandyte Green Wedge region – tells us Dr. David Spratt, co-author of Climate Code Red, will speak on the latest research and local impacts of climate change on Wednesday evening 24 September at the Warrandyte Community Centre.
“Perhaps the two most outstanding books on global warming to have been published lately are The Hot Topic and Climate Code Red. Were I a philanthropist, I would purchase several hundred copies of both and send them to our politicians and policy-makers,” comments Robert Manne in The Monthly.
“This is both a global and a local challenge . Our incoming Council needs to be ready from Day One…this is the second in a series of forums in the community interest. Your input is welcome.”
David is passionate about a sustainable environment and is standing for election In November 2008 as a Manningham Councillor in the Ward of Mullum Mullum, which takes in Warrandyte, Wonga Park, Park Orchards and Donvale.
David was a candidate for the Greens in the recent state and federal elections and has decided to stand as a independent without party support or endorsement because he believes party-political divisions are not what we need right now in local government.
