About the speaker

The theory of climate change is not like the theory of gravity which can be expressed in a simple equation. If you deny gravity exists you can safely jump off a cliff. With climate change it depends more on your appetite for risk. A bit like getting on a plane with a 50/50 chance of a successful landing. It’s the probability that counts. If we get it wrong we may have to evacuate planet earth.

John Sauven has been the Executive Director of Greenpeace UK since 2008. Before that he was the director responsible for Greenpeace communications and working on sustainable solutions for businesses.

Over the years he has been involved in campaigns to save the arctic from oil drilling, save the Canadian temperate forests for the Great Bear and save the worlds rainforests, as well as many, many others!

Fun fact: he even bought a plot of land in the path of the proposed third Heathrow runway!
