Bishop and Professor to debate climate change

climate change

The University of Liverpool’s Professor Andy Morse is to take part in a special debate on how people might respond to the threats of climate change. He will be joined on the platform by Liverpool’s Anglican Bishop, Paul Bayes.

The public event – the second annual Gary Mahoney Memorial Debate – has been organised by Liverpool Friends of the Earth and Merseyside Environmental Trust, in tribute to the late Gary Mahoney, long-time Friends of the Earth activist and air quality expert on Merseyside.

Frank Kennedy of Liverpool Friends of the Earth said: “We’re keen to pose the question: what motivates people to call for society to change? Is it a matter of moral courage or simply listening to scientists?

“Universities like Liverpool clearly recognise the science of climate change. The Bishop himself used to be involved with the Ecology Party, yet ‘green’ policies are still being over-ruled, as with the Government’s support for fracking.”
