April 2013. Alice Bows’ presentation at “we need to talk about consumption” event

Pdf available at Why Government can & should do more – Bows 2013.

Alice’s presentation was part of a suite of brief talks (from Caroline Lucas, Ruth Potts, John Barrett, and others) outlining the differing roles of consumption in understanding climate change.

The event launched a simple animation (see http://carbonomissions.org.uk/) describing how taking account of emissions from the goods we all consume paints a very different picture from focussing solely on emissions from within the UK’s territorial boarders.
