“The Northern Greenhouse – A New Vision Of The North” Volume 1 is the culmination of years of research of the EcoTourism industry, Ecology, the green economy and renewable energy in the North

James Walsh, the books’ author says “I have been researching how we can build a progressive North that can bring big global solutions to the largest issues of our time such as climate change - in terms of pollution we are still cleaning up from the industrial revolution, both at home and abroad, and a clean and green North is essential for future generations”

“My research has taken me all around the North of England; further afield to the Eden Project in Cornwall, the Isle of Mull & the Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales; to the Lancashire County Council fracking hearings of summer 2015 & Trafford Council Pomona hearings, where I gave speeches to Council officials; I have also visited several political & business conferences”

“Mainstream politics and media scarcely even acknowledges climate change and the green economy in the UK, and we are playing catch up with many nations who have a higher ambition, knowledge level and green business sense”

“Many commentators feel that we need to somehow find a way to balance the environment & the economy & the new green business revolution is trying to find that balance”

“We are at a point in time where we all need to work together - communities, ecologists, business leaders and politicians – to build a sustainable future, and in the North we have the entrepreneurs, the experience, the workforce and so many amazing natural places such as the Lake District, Lancashire, Northumberland, North York Moors & Peak District”

“Climate change is a national emergency and this book calls for urgent national action, transferring to a Zero Carbon North as fast as possible - in the 1940’s we had a National Effort and we are calling for a Green National Effort on climate change on a similar scale”

Two years ago, the One Million Climate Jobs Northern Launch took place in Manchester just after the Climate March 2014 and the environmental movement has seen a real big increase in strength with the anti-fracking movement now boasting more than 500 local groups around the UK and the largest ever UK anti-fracking march has just taken place in Manchester

The book is being launched to coincide with some big game changing events that are all happening at a similar time and are giving the environment, climate change and wildlife a high profile

James says “The launch of the Northern Greenhouse is being timed to coincide with a number of big events that should see a global scale shift in the way people think about the environment, “Before The Flood”, a new Leonardo DiCaprio film on climate change, “Planet Earth 2” David Attenboroughs’ new series on Earths’ wildlife and the COP22 Conference in Marrakesh, Morocco, where world leaders are gathering to seal the deal on the Paris Agreement & formulate plans to transfer to a global green economy”

“The book also looks forward to COP23 in Bonn, Germany, in November 2017 and to the 2020 Japanese Olympic Games, and acknowledges the recently launched 2050 Pathways”
