75% funded -- and an interview with Christiana Figueres ...

Dear All,

75% funded, which is terrific -- and while, with four days left, I don't now anticipate tumbling over the finishing line in time for Christmas Day, it feels nevertheless as if the end is in sight ... and so I would like to renew my heartfelt thanks to the 113 people who have so far supported and the many more who have spread the word.  It means a great deal.  

To celebrate 75%, please find a link to a 40 minute interview with Christiana Figueres, until recently Executive Secretary of the UN's Framework Convention on Climate Change, recorded on Friday 16th December.  Christiana was characteristically eloquent, passionate and engaging about Paris, climate science, the world's current politics, and the need for radical action between now and 2020 -- the cause of her newly-established effort, Mission 2020 : http://www.mission2020.global/

Here is the interview: I hope you enjoy it.

Happy Christmas and all best wishes for 2017 to you all,

Edward
