About Us

Climate Concern UK was set up in 2004 by climate change campaigner Peter Hale, who had recently sold a business and wanted to use the extra time available to campaign about the likely dangers of our greenhouse gas emissions, to discourage excessive use of energy, and to involve others in conveying the message.

This web site was produced, attempting to cover the basics of the carbon emissions/global warming/climate change problem, to help challenge scepticism and denial, and explain why we should all recognise the risks to human wellbeing from our carbon emitting lifestyles. 

The main resulting activity is the Climate Change Speaker Network. After starting to give talks himself to various local societies and schools, Peter Hale came across mention of such a network on a U.S. web site. Knowing that nothing similar existed in the UK, he started one. Speakers were initially found from some of the main environmental groups who helped publicised the search. The web site (www.climate-speakers.org.uk) went live in August 2006 and the network now has around 60 speakers in many parts of the UK.
