So what are you doing on November 30th?

I shall be at the Cass Business School in EC 1 from 6.30 pm to, umm, well, throwing out time.

Title: Chasing Rainbows: How the Green agenda defeats its aims
Speaker: Tim Worstall
Date: 30th November 2010
Time: 6.30pm to 8.00pm
Location: Cass Business School, 106 Bunhill Row, London EC1Y 8TZ

This event is to launch the latest work of our ASI fellow Tim Worstall.

The environmentalists have won: we all agree that we should be green. Now it\’s the revenge of the economists: how should we be green?


This is no knee-jerk, reactionary counterblast that denies we need to be environmentally conscious, but rather a compelling and utterly necessary plea to examine our environmental activities with due accuracy and thought.

The popular and globally esteemed science writer and columnist, Matt Ridley, has called this book: ‘Fearless, fresh, forensic and funny’, while Tim Harford, author of The Undercover Economist, says: ‘Jaw-droppingly rude he may be, but he’s smart, and this book is quite an education.’

Be there or be square as they say.

  1. Will there be copies of the book for sale there?

    Tim adds: Good question to which I don’t know the answer. You can already pre order on Amazon……

  2. Well I’ve already pre-ordered the book (and paid for it), so can I come along for the freebie drinkie?

    Apart from the fact that I don’t accept that the eco-loons have won – the wheels are coming off their bandwagon, both across the scientific community and in the public perception, faster than you can say Obama Mid-Term Meltdown.

  3. I’ll do my best to be there, provided work doesn’t send me away.
    Drinkies after, anyone?

    Tim adds: Of course!

  4. I find I am watching television that evening (as Peter Cook said when David Frost invited him to dine with Margaret and Snowdon).

    Although I’d actually love to come; just a bit of a trek from Scotland

  5. good luck with it Tim. Can’t make it myself.

    [of course I anticipate disagreeing what half of what you’ve written].

  6. On Friday I will go down to Kinokuniya at the Dubai Mall to order my copy. Can’t make it for the talk, or the talk and the drinks, but break a leg.
