BHA: Global Warming - Where Do We Go From Here?

Centre for Inquiry UK and Conway Hall present a day-conference on radical suggestions and solutions on how to respond to the threat of global warming.

Global warming is considered to be a key threat to the modern world, though our response to it continues to be a source of great debate. From efforts to persuade nations to curb greenhouse gases to a greater emphasis on environmental concerns, there are plenty of ideas to combat the threat posed by global warming.
