Climate in the Pub
Climate Change Balmain-Rozelle is possibly best known for its bi-monthly Climate in the Pub. At present we are meeting via Zoom, but everything else is the same: join us from 6.45 for 7pm, second Tuesday every even month for an informal and informed discussion. You will need to register.
We'll have a guest speaker or two for the chosen topic. Subscribe to our Event Calendar, Newsletter or watch out for our Climate in the Pub posters on light poles in the area. For the full authentic experience ask us to let you help put the posters up! On the evening pour yourself a drink, listen to the experts, ask questions and share your views.

He is recognised as one of Australia's leading experts in this field. Hugh's talk showed the contribution of the various methods of electricity generation in Australia, both at present and in the options modelled in AEMO's latest Integrated System Plan.
