Having inundated friends in California with endless posts on our local attempts to Stop Heathrow Expansion, here’s something more apt and interesting for all of you in the Bay Area.

The event advertised below kicks off at 7pm on Tuesday (tomorrow) evening, April 8, 2008. It is open to the general public and is organised by Energy Crossroads. This is a rare chance to hear Robert Swan, OBE, a British polar explorer who has been on numerous expeditions to Antarctica as a member of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), speak about his climate mission. He aims to inspire and challenge leaders (that means each and every one of us), in order to encourage necessary policy and behavioural changes to speed adoption of effective climate change solutions:

From Energy Crossroads — you are cordially invited to attend the “Voyage for Cleaner Energy: Robert Swan Lecture” on April 8 at 7pm at Stanford’s Tresidder Memorial Union – Oak West. The event is open to the general public.

Robert Swan is kicking off his 5-year awareness campaign and lecture series right here in the Bay Area, with Stanford as a big stop. As a polar explorer, he witnessed the effects of global warming first-hand and now is striving to amass the public will necessary to make policy changes, and cultural changes, that will accelerate the use of clean energy.
