|FEBRUARY MONTHLY MEETING
GUEST SPEAKER – TIM FLANNERY
The evening with Tim Flannery on 25th February drew a great crowd. The event was held in the church to accommodate the more than 200 people who attended. BCCAG member Fraser Gibson gave a rundown on the Climate Council and its current fundraising activity before introducing Tim.
Tim gave a synopsis on “Climate Change” emphasizing the seriousness of continued burning of fossil fuels. He spoke of the need to move more quickly to renewables. He said it is also important we consider new and unconventional ways of dealing with mitigating the effects of climate change. Kelly McKenzie from the AYCC was our moderator and added a youthful perspective to the night.
