John Lettice July 17, 2008 at 1:45 pm The publicity material for the Summit is instructive. “Fighting climate change fatigue”, it says here: “How to keep stakeholders engaged.” And: “The Guardian Climate Change Summit will bring together senior executives and decision makers to discuss strategies to keep the consumer engaged and fight against climate change.” This sounds to me rather like saying that the punters have started to get bored with the greenwash, they therefore need to figure out how to win back their attention, so they’re going to have a conference to work on what greenwash should do next. So rather than head indoors to give it added credibility, maybe she should have just stayed on the picket line.
