Climate change and conflict, anyone?

Well, that's off the subject of all things Shepherd's Bush, but it does explain why my postings have been fewer than normal recently. I've been in the middle of working the media as we launch our new report at work which makes the link between climate change and violent conflict. As most of the world tries (and fails) to deal with offsetting future climate change, we seem to be forgetting the effect that climate change is already having on some of the most vulnerable people in the world. Here's a piece from Al Jazeera that was running this week-end. And before you think this has nothing to do with you, how many of our neighbours in W12 do you think come from parts of the world that this does effect? Overall we think it impacts on literally billions. As London's first ever 'Climate Hearing' amply demonstrates.
