Peoples of the Sea: Climate Change and Political Struggle in a Divided Nation

As the opening event of their 2013 lecture series, the Centre for Human Ecology presents what promises to be a fascinating evening.

One of the world’s top climate diplomats, John Ashton, is now an independent commentator and adviser on the politics of climate change. From 2006-12 he served as Special Representative for Climate Change to three successive UK Foreign Secretaries, spanning the current Coalition and the previous Labour Government.
 
He was a cofounder and, from 2004-6, the first Chief Executive of the think tank E3G. From 1978-2002, after a brief period as a research astronomer, he was a career diplomat, with a particular focus on China. He is a visiting professor at the London University School of Oriental and African Studies, and a Distinguished Policy Fellow at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College.
