Climate change comes to Tetbury Goods Shed

Where: Tetbury Goods Shed

When: Wednesdays July 24 & July 31

Tetbury Goods Shed will be looking at two aspects of climate change at the end of this month.

First, on Wednesday, July 24, it is showing An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power (PG). A decade after An Inconvenient Truth (2006) brought climate change to the heart of popular culture, the follow-up shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution.

Former US Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight travelling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy.

Cameras follow him behind the scenes - in moments both private and public, funny and poignant — as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.

Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and tickets are £7 adults £5 children.

Then on Wednesday, July 31, July's Shed Talk invites John Andrews to explain the causes of global warming, the technological solutions available to mitigate the effects and the changes to lifestyle this will bring about.

John's academic background is in physics and mathematics. He spent 30 years as a research scientist in the electricity supply industry, after which he lectured at Bristol and Oxford Universities.

This included a course in Energy Studies, which resulted in a student textbook Energy Science: Principles, Technologies and Impacts (OUP) with Nick Jelley (Oxford) and is now being updated for its 4th edition.

Doors open at 7pm and tickets cost £8.
