A message to the younger generation, in the wake of COP17 in Durban, from Paul Downton, who has been monitoring climate change for more than 30 years.
Architect, writer and urban evolutionary, with a doctorate in environmental studies, Paul Downton was born when the CO2 levels in the atmosphere were 311 ppm. It’s now 390. He spent the early 1980s reading papers on climate science and figured out, from the evidence, that we were headed for global warming. In 1989 Paul was instrumental in forming The Greenhouse Association of South Australia, one of the first citizens’ organizations devoted to combating climate change. That was 22 years ago.
