The Politics of Climate Change

The Stonyhurst Politics Society welcomed its first speaker of 2017, Mr Gary Young, who gave a fascinating account of how he started as an apprentice electrician at Ribblesdale Cement Works Clitheroe, rising up to Plant Manager and then Group Projects Manager for Heidelberg Cement in Germany.  He explained to a large and interested audience how climate change was a great challenge to the worldwide cement industry.  He displayed many graphs and figures to illustrate how CO2 emissions were being controlled and restricted within the industry in order to reduce the impact on greenhouse gases and the environment.

This was an excellent presentation on the complicated topic and certainly the first on “the Politics of Climate Change”.  We are so very grateful to Gary for visiting us at Stonyhurst!
