    June OGP Book Club

    What we need to do now, by Chris Goodall.

    June's Book will be "What we need to do now" by Chris Goodall. The session will be online, and Chris Goodall, the writer, will be there to present his ideas, and take questions from you, the readers.

     Chris Goodall sets out the ways the UK can become carbon neutral by 2050. His proposals include:

    • Building a huge over-capacity of wind and solar energy, storing the excess as hydrogen.
    • Using hydrogen to fuel our trains, shipping, boilers and heavy industry, while electrifying buses, trucks and cars.
    • Farming - and eating - differently, encouraging plant-based alternatives to meat
    • Paying farmers to plant and maintain woodlands.
    • Making fashion sustainable and aviation pay its way, funding synthetic fuels and genuine offsets.
    • Using technical solutions to capture CO2 from the air, and biochar to lock carbon in the soil.

    Order the book from Amazon or Blackwells.

    What We Need To Do Now is a short hardback book that offers a set of solutions to each of the main challenges posed by global heating. Of course it covers energy supply but also has chapters on housing, food, clothing and the main manufacturing problem areas, such as cement and steel. It finishes by looking briefly at the opportunities for direct capture of CO2 from air and the possible benefits and costs of tinkering with the reflectivity of the Earth’s atmosphere.

    Help us to create a Greener Oxfordshire!

    Help us fight the climate crisis. Let's get more Greens elected!

    We need better representatives, ones that don't just pay lip service to the climate crisis. You can help our local election candidates reach thousands of voters in the year round campaign leading up to 6 May 2021

    Oxfordshire Green Party is campaigning for a Green New Deal by getting more Green Party members elected at all levels of government. Already our elected Green councillors have got local councils to divest from fossil fuels, declare a climate emergency, improve cycling facilities and require 50% social housing in new developments.

    We're not funded by big business or rich people, but we do have thousands of members and supporters in Oxfordshire. Will you help make a difference? Please sign up below to volunteer in any way you can. Or if you would like to speak to someone about it, please phone Kate Robinson on 07582 903996 to find how you can help, at a time that suits you.

    THANK YOU!
