Yes Aubrey

I strongly support the C&C approach and the submission to the UNFCCC.

According to Chris who is also the ex Campaigns Director for Greenpeace,
10 factors have made it hard to campaign effectively ‘on climate’.

1. Scientists defined the issue; 2. Governments ran off with it; 3. NGOs adopted secondary roles;
4. The issue had no public; 5. The media were left to define the issue in visual terms;
6. Governments soft pedalled on the issue; 7. Scientists led calls for education of the public;
8. Many NGOs tried to make the UNFCCC ‘work’; 9. Others tried to connect it with “bigger issues”;
10. There was no common proposition.

He writes, "only Aubrey Meyer father of ‘contraction and convergence’, managed to penetrate this remote citadel.
NGOs could prioritise climate change but they were stuck in someone else’s game."
