Understanding climate change is often confusing and contradictory. For every argument on the size of the problem, its seriousness and its cause, there seems to be another voice declaring the opposite.
Now however, the world's leading scientists are united in the scientific evidence for climate change. The big question is, are the people of Ireland ready for the challenge?

Gavin Harte’s presentation, ‘Climate for Change’ is cleverly put together, highly informative and superbly delivered. Gavin deals with complex science in a clear, precise manner that will be understood by all. He has the remarkable ability to deliver what is generally seen as ‘negative’ news in a way which will force people to examine their lifestyles and make the necessary changes. One does not come out of the presentation with a sense of hopelessness, but rather with an enthusiasm to make the changes and make a difference. Everyone in the country should see this presentation.

Gavin’s presentation to South Dublin County Council’s Environmental SPC was well received; it was clear, conscious and engaging. The presentation was set out so that it was easy to understand the science and challenges in relation to Climate Change. It is a presentation I would recommend to anyone who wishes to understand what is meant by Climate Change and to reinforce the concept that a combination of individual actions can make a difference.

I have received very positive feedback from the teachers and from the members of County Monaghan’s Tidy Towns Network about your talk. The very professional presentation delivered a couple of key messages about Climate Change that I think will be critical for the Monaghan County Council going forward. I would be delighted to have you back again in County Monaghan for more talks and I would recommend that other local authorities should avail of the offer of the seminar. The more we spread this message the better!

Gavin Harte delivered an excellent lecture on climate change to Cork County Council staff and invited guests. The contents addressed both natural and the man made impacts . Feed back from the audience revealed their genuine concerns and questioned how best they can live and work with a reduced negative impact on the environment. I highly recommend that you attend this talk. It is sobering.
