Most citizens only saw the tip of the iceberg of the remarkable achievements by those in the inner Covid management ‘core’ delivering extraordinary feats of purchasing and logistics for our 75 million or so UK citizens. Even now, in China, are having to apply complete city lockdowns to control the ‘Wuhan Virus’. Beijing cannot be popular with the millions of Chinese citizens affected by these huge lockdowns.
On Wednesday 19th of October we revisited, with valuable T-L.com member Emeritus, Garth Shephard, as our guide, the subject of ‘Changing Climates’ .. a vital topic, which we first addressed in November 2007, 15 years ago , at Chatham House in St James Square. The recent Glasgow climate event in the Autumn of 2021 (COP26) ukcop26.org was remarkable but the target of 1.5 degrees of global warming is now an unachievable goal, the climate changes are already with us. So what is the ‘latest picture’ and how are we going to adapt? we decided to hold this session in Zoom. As with all our insight events and for more information, just contact email@example.com
