About Event

An afternoon of learning, connections and climate action recommendations, hosted by a climate tech angel investor.

On August 14, 1912, a small New Zealand newspaper published a short article announcing global coal usage was affecting our planet’s temperature. This piece from 110 years ago is now famous, shared across the internet this time every year as one of the first pieces of climate science in the media (even though it was actually a reprint of a piece published in a New South Wales mining journal a month earlier). So how did it come about? And why has it taken so long for the warnings in the article to be heard – and acted on?

Come find out at this lively moderated panel style debate!

This session is now 1 hour and hosted as a part of Port Labs Climate Co-Work day.

Come for just this session, or spend Friday working with amongst climate colleagues. Register for the full day here.
