subject: RS climate change meeting, update on session 7
to: "Mike Hulme (E-mail)" <m.hulmeatXYZxyz.ac.uk>
I just wanted to update you on progress on speakers for session 7 and give
you their contact detals so you can co-ordinate their talks. I have also
attached an updated copy of the draft program for the meeting. Now the
speakers have been nearly fixed, I will go ahead and contact the discussants
you have suggested.
A. Reducing emissions
Please see forwarded email below from David Vincent about subject of talk by
Tom Delay of the Carbon Trust.
We could keep the title of the part of the session as "Reducing emissions"
and he could present "The Role of the Carbon Trust"
Please can you contact David Vincent about the subject (contact details
Suggested discussants: Andrew Warren, Chris Anastasi
B. Risk: managing the dangers
Chris Newton has agreed to speak in principle and will await contact from
you. His contact details are:
Head of Sustainable Development, Environment Agency, Rio House, Waterside
Drive, Aztec West, Bristol, BS32 4UD. Tel 01454 878873 Email:
Suggested discussants: Paul Jefferies (RSPB), Bob Maynard (DOH), John Parker
C. Communicating climate change science
Roger Harrobin is interested in doing the talk, but says its impossible for
him to commit 100%.
I went to a meeting, organised by ITDG, last week which he had to drop out
of - reason given was because he is an expert on the Taliban!
Do you think it would be safer to line up some alternatives for this slot?
Email address: roger.harrabinatXYZxyz.co.uk
Suggested discussants: Kate Hampton FoE, Phil Matthews (Councils for climate
Attendees: We are keen to get your suggestions for who to invite, so please
send them to Rachel or me, with institution name, and postal address if
possible. We need this by mid next week as we would like to send out
invitations as soon as possible.

Subject: Re: Royal Society climate change meeting
Dear Marisa, just to confirm our telecon this am, Tom Delay is happy to
accept the RS's invitation to spk on 13/12. But the subject should be
changed to reflect the primary objective of the Carbon Trust: ie to work
with business and the public sector to deliver the UK's ongoing carbon
reduction targets. The wroking title is The role of the Carbon Trust. I
attach a background note on the CT for your info.
Pl come back to me as your programme develops.
