“2071 The world we’ll leave our grand children”(CHRIS RAPLEY, ROYAL COURT THEATRE) – Well respected climate scientist connects with theatre people to create new type of event, to communicates with new audience, with interest in climate change not previously engaged. Incidental gem is review of risk. Expecting to limit global warming to less than 2degC by keeping CO2 levels to less than 450ppm is not certain. It’s as feeble as 2 out of 3 chance. Evidently, when proposing new projects, these days, as well as usual financial and even environmental analysis, in UK it’s necessary to identify any risk with less than 1 in 200 chance. Curiously 1 in 200 is current risk of exceeding 8degC warming. How can we let our leaders take such crazy risk of extinction and extreme cost to these and future generations?
