The climate change battle is now getting to its critical phase. Some are optimistic about progress, but the Earth's normal climate systems are also starting to break down at an accelerating rate.

About the speaker

Joe Botting is a Llandrindod-based palaeontologist and naturalist, with a long interest in environmental matters.  He has been closely following material on climate change for many years and has previously given talks to the group on the latest developments.

What's Wrong with Money?
... and what is it doing to our Society?

We invite you to an evening of short films on the theme of Money and Society which show that changes to make our financial and social systems more sustainable are necessary, possible and beneficial for all.

Many of the big social and economic problems that we’re facing today are due to the way that money is created by the financial institutions. This is leading to increasing inequality, indebtedness and unaffordable housing.

TLT member Jackie Talbott will introduce a number of important ideas, such as the Three Pillars of Sustainability and lead us through a number of short films that show what is wrong with the current systems, what different approaches are possible, and what we can do to bring about change.

The Road to a Zero Carbon Transport System

Time is running out for petrol and diesel engined cars. Their emissions have long been recognised as damaging to the environment. And the growing evidence of huge numbers of premature deaths due to air polution shows that change can't come too soon.

Our speakers for September are Bob Cumming and Bill Whyman of pioneering local company Riversimple Movement Ltd. They will share their vision of how battery and fuel cell electric vehicles may evolve and what is likely to become most appropriate for future transport systems.

About the speakers

Bob Cumming was formerly a marine engineer on nuclear submarines with a career of 24 years in the Royal Navy, followed by a design leadership and management role for Rolls Royce as part of the next generation nuclear propulsion plant development. He more recently moved into the fuel cell industry, developing solutions for the integration of large scale, stationary power generation into existing infrastructure, before realising the opportunity to become part of the Riversimple team with an ambition to deliver cutting edge technology into our everyday lives that changes the way we impact and interact with the natural resources of our planet.

Bill Whyman was previously an R&D technician with Riversimple responsible for building and manufacturing our prototypes and now leads our Procurement team. Before he joined Riversimple, he was a lecturer on motor vehicle technology. Truly Welsh, he has a big interest in sustainability and the future of Wales in a truly sustainable world.

Riversimple Movement Ltd is an award-winning innovator in the design and manufacture of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles based in Llandrindod Wells.
