George Monbiot is in pugnacious mood. One of our foremost thinkers and environmentalists, unbeaten intellectual champion of free speech, and polemicist supreme, Monbiot comes to Bristol for a special double bill. In the first half he addresses a hot topic of the day and then, in the second, takes on all comers in bouts of verbal fisticuffs with the audience. Possible issues range from the Avonmouth biofuel plan to badger culling, short-selling and the banks to climate change deniers, and why he tried to arrest an American neoconservative when he spoke in Britain.
George Monbiot is a campaigning journalist who writes regularly for The Guardian. He is the author of the bestselling books The Age of Consent: A Manifesto for a New World Order and Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain, as well as the investigative travel books Poisoned Arrows, Amazon Watershed and No Man’s Land. www.monbiot.com.
