ON May 2nd, I attended the New Scientist Environmental Road Show in Sydney. Apart from promoting New Scientist, the show was intended to raise awareness of the environmental issues confronting humanity in the 21st Century. The presentation began with a series of video clips of prominent environmentalists expressing concern at the failure of nations to act decisively on global environmental problems. New Scientist staff then presented three scenarios of the environmental future based on global warming, atmospheric pollution, and growth of the World's population followed by a panel discussion and comment from the audience. In all, an enjoyable and informative, if somewhat predictable, evening.
