Climate change is not just about science – it’s about the future we want to create 23.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Climate scientist Chris Rapley and his co-author of the acclaimed play 2071 explain why the 2015 Paris climate summit cannot be allowed to fail – for all our sakes • Six steps world leaders must agree to take to protect Earth Next December, 196 nations will meet in Paris to agree a course of action to respond to climate change. They will do so under the auspices of the UN framework convention on climate change. This is an international treaty negotiated at the Earth summit in Rio in 1992 with the objective to “stabilise greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that will prevent dangerous human interference with the climate system”. The discussions in Paris in 2015 will be informed by the latest climate science. In our play 2071 , which recently completed its inaugural run at the Royal Court theatre in London, directed by Katie Mitchell, we explore the science, its implications and the options before us. A key aim is to leave the audience better placed to participate in the public ...

Ethical fashion: where are your clothes made? 16.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Lucy Siegle drops into some famous environmental photo opportunities to model the latest in ethically sourced clothing Occasionally my invitation to the top table of world-changing summits and seminal ecological gatherings gets lost in the post. Do I crumble? Do I lay down and die? I do not. I simply drop myself into the frame after the event, in an act of retrospective photobombing. But as an ethical Zelig what would I wear? Fashion is often cast as an irrelevance when it comes to global matters, written off as a preening, primping side show. It should be centre stage. This is an industry involving millions of people, from those growing and processing raw fibre to workers in the vast sewing factories and the employees and shoppers in millions of retail outlets worldwide. Whole ecosystems have been trashed by our appetite for certain clothing. An example of this is the Aral sea, the worlds fourth largest lake, which has been reduced to a puddle by cotton irrigation. Fashions carbon footprint is enormous, ...
