The Carbon Club

Marian Wilkinson will be talking on The Carbon Club on Wednesday 7th April, at the BWCC in Paddington ( Paddo Workers Club ).

The Carbon Club reveals the truth behind Australia’s two decades of climate inaction. It’s the story of how a loose confederation of influential climate-science sceptics, politicians and business leaders sought to control Australia’s response to the climate crisis. They shared a fear that dealing with climate change would undermine the nation’s wealth, jobs and competitive advantage – and the power of the carbon club.

Dan O’Neill will introduce her and Andrew Bartlett will be the facilitator (chair !).

Speaker : Marian Wilkinson

Subject  : The Carbon Club

Where   : The Paddington Workers Club, cnr Given and Latrobe terraces, Paddington

When     : Wednesday 7th April, 2021 at 7 pm ( 6.30 for 7 pm)

Cost        : zilch !

Although based on her recently published book, it will be more of a presentation on what to do, how to challenge The order.

Marian is a well known investigative journalist who started off in Brisbane at 4ZZZ while studying at U of Q.

So maybe an interview by you may be relevant.

She will also give a talk the next night ( 8th April ) at Maleny.

One thought on “The Carbon Club

  1. Group of 17 says:

    To all attenders of past 17 Group meetings:

    As you know, since the Covid era began, our monthly 17 Group meetings have been suspended. But we are hoping to resume them this year, beginning on the first Wednesday in April. Because of the continuing need to preserve physical distancing, in the case of meetings that are likely to attract a bigger audience, we will probably need to have them in venues with more space than our usual meeting place, unit 6 at 20 Drury St West End.

    Our first speaker for this year is likely to attract quite a large audience. It will be Marian Wilkinson addressing the issues raised in her recent book The Carbon Club – a devastating critique of the political actors (fossil fuel industry agents, politicians, governments and others ) denying the scientific evidence of anthropogenic global warming and thwarting government action on dealing with climate change.

    This meeting will be held at the usual time of 7 pm, on Wednesday the 7th of April, in the Paddington Workers Club, or as it is now officially known, The Brisbane Workers Community Centre, at 11/2 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington QLD 4064.

    As many of you will already know, Marian studied at U of Q and was a founding member of 4ZZZ. She went on to work on many major Australian newspapers and media outlets, including Four Corners. She has gone on to do a lot of ground-breaking investigations and has written several books on major issues of the last twenty or thirty years. She is incontestably one of the leading investigative journalists in Australia.

    There will be later notices nearer to the time of the meeting.

    Marian will sign copies of her book, which will be available for sale after the meeting.
