Lincoln Efford Memorial Lecture 2016. Thursday 22nd September at 7pm
Russel Norman, current Head of Greenpeace NZ and previously co leader of the NZ Green Party.
Two existential threats to human civilization
There are currently two great existential threats facing our civilization – climate change and nuclear weapons. While avoiding catastrophic climate change is challenging, there is at least now a clear path ahead of us and globally we have started to take a few tentative steps down that path. Avoiding nuclear war is perhaps less hopeful. Currently there is a significant escalation in the risk of nuclear war, largely without much public attention. And we have currently no realistic path for reducing the risk.
