RESIDENTS of Bishopston are being invited to a series of climate and energy talks at Bishopston Library.

 The Friends of Bishopston Library are holding the talks on Thursday evenings, starting from April 26. 

 Nikki Jones MSc, researcher and writer on global and UK energy will give an overview of the scientific consensus on climate change. Suitable for both adults and older teenagers, the talks are aimed at those who need clarification of what is being discussed by politicians and the media and there will be opportunities for questions throughout. 

Following the first talk, “What is Climate Change?”, future topics include “Global Energy Trends” (May 3), “UK Energy, Emissions and Targets” (May 10), “Is Nuclear The Answer?” (May 10), “Land Use and Climate Change” (May 24) and “The Way Forward” (May 31). 

Nikki is not charging for her talks but she will accept donations to her chosen charity, Solar Aid, who aim to combat poverty and climate change by providing solar lighting in Africa.

 Doors open for each talk at 7pm and hot and soft drinks will be available. To find out more and book your place, enquire at the library, email Gavin@GavinSpittlehouse.co.uk or visit www.bishopstonlibrary.org.uk
