Double-Whammy Befalling London, Jan 19, 2011

As it happens, Polly Higgins and Lord Martin Rees will both be speaking in London on Jan 19, 2011.

Apologies of course to Polly…rather than deranged statements in support of a new Committee of Public Safety (please nobody tell the warmists how little CO2 is emitted by guillotines!), I’ll most likely opt for a relaxed evening about “the search for planets around other stars” and in general anything apart from the world I left behind me.

  • Ecocide – Polly Higgins, international environmental lawyer and activist, is leading a campaign to declare the mass destruction of ecosystems an international Crime Against Peace – alongside genocide and crimes against humanity. Join us to explore how the crime of Ecocide can be implemented, how it can be applied internationally and nationally within a short timescale, and what the implications for global health may be. Roberts G06 Sir Ambrose Fleming Lecture Theatre, Malet Place, UCL, Wednesday 19th January 2011, 3-4.30pm with drinks to follow
  • Life’s Future in the Cosmos – Prof Martin Rees – The talk will summarise current developments in understanding cosmic evolution and in the search for planets around other stars, as well as speculating on what may lie beyond the horizon of our observations. Conference Room at 27/29 South Lambeth Road, London SW8 1SZ, The British Interplanetary Society, 19 January 2011 7 – 8.30 pm

    Although the Polly Higgins talk will probably have a horrid fascination all of its own.

    “Join us to explore how the crime of Ecocide can be implemented, how it can be applied internationally and nationally within a short timescale…” Very sensible, nothing like a short timescale in which to rush through a choice piece of especially rubbishy and draconian legislation – the faster the better, really!

    “… with drinks to follow…” Double whiskies recommended.

    from your previous post:
    “Ad hoc hypotheses are common in paranormal research and in the work of pseudoscientists”.
    ..and also in cosmology. 96% of the universe is currently explained by ad hoc hypotheses, and only 4% by the ordinary hoc kind.

    I think you made a wise choice.
    Ecocide is an attempt to find another source of income for the legal profession. The entire environmental movement has been a growth industry for legal groups and provided employment for otherwise unemployable law school graduates.
    They make Ambulance Chasers look respectable.
