Next week the Conservative Party conference comes to town. From a climate
perspective, there are three particularly useful developments.
The first is the Climate Clinic, happening in the anyone-can-get-to-it bit- at the
Cube on Portland St.
Secondly, the Manchester-based “Centre for Local Economics Strategies” has
a couple of very interesting events lined up at the Town Hall.
The third “useful” event is behind [police and* ] ideological lines. Denialist nutjobs
(ideologues who don't understand that capitalism has always needed regulation,
coal-industry funded shills etc) who think Climate Change isn't happening have
the following delightful meeting planned:

their graves etc.
b) we’ve asked Manchester City Council if they’ll be sending someone to

*NOT- MCFly forced to eat humble pie. Within an hour and a half of having
posted this, the comment below was received. MCFly has to hold its hands
up and say we didn't check our facts on the perimeter of the Tory Party
Conference- we assumed, incorrectly that the Freedom Zone would be behind
a fence. Sorry about that. Kudos to Mark Wallace, who knows how to claim and
occupy the high moral ground.
