Peter Taylor from Ethos UK joins us to talk about The Corporatization of the Environmental Movement, The Fraud of Cap and Trade, Al Gore, the Computer Models Predicting Global Warming and his experience of how Greenpeace and other Environmental Organizations have been hijacked. Peter provides the ecological science background for the Ethos team. He has extensive experience of research and policy analysis across a wide field of environmental issues, having advised governments, the European Commission, and UN organizations. He has made a significant contribution to international treaties on ocean protection and the development of the precautionary principle. Recent work has included consultancy to UK government agencies and non-government organizations on renewable energy policy and rural issues (he sits on the National Advisory Group for the Community Renewables Initiative (a joint Countryside Agency and DTI program).
Visualising Renewable Energy in the Landscape
The Countryside Agency commissioned Ethos to produce a series of images using virtual reality software.
The project focussed on the kinds of choices faced by communities as Britain begins to take responsibility for sustainable energy supplies and efficient use of natural resources.
Ethos designed and produced a presentation pack which contained a multimedia CD with animated walk-throughs, fly-throughs, hi-resolution images and a Powerpoint presentation, and printed material outlining the issues and displaying the images.
