Publications

Green House publishes:

Reports - which contain recommendations
Pamphlets - longer essays, or sometimes a collection of essays by different people
Gases - shorter essays which look at a topical issue
Books  - we have published two books.

Plus we have submitted evidence to inquiries, responded to consultations or reports produced by other people.  These are available on our Responses page.

Decisions on whether to publish material are taken by the Green House Core Group. However, the views expressed are those of the authors not of Green House as an organisation.

Stopping fossil fuel extraction – a lockdown approach

Chapman argues we should shift attention from carbon emissions to stopping fossil fuel extraction. The climate crisis requires we stop extraction now, but just as in the lockdowns there were exceptions to the general stay at home rule, there would need to be exceptions to the ban on fossil fuels



Peter Sims

Global Public Investment requirements for Zero Carbon

Sufficient and appropriately directed global public investment is critical to shift our economies globally to zero carbon. Currently such investment is inadequate, and still funds infrastructure expansion which increases dependance of fossil fuel reliant.

Between XR and COP

On the spectrum from conventional activism and politics through to arrest-willing non-violent direct action, the most obvious vacancy is work.

Peter Sims

Transport Investment: The Zero Carbon Challenge​​

Our current targets to phase out fossil fuels is insufficient. Investment drives increases in hard to decarbonise transport infrastructure. Only by shifting our investment priorities in these terms will it be possible to meet the target of keeping global warming within the 1.5°C



Peter Sims

The Social and Environmental Requirements of a Climate Emergency Economy

Our economy is not currently zero carbon, stable or sustainable, even in economic terms. What interventions are required to deliver the rapid transition required? What must these interventions achieve and how should these requirements be defined?



Jonathan Essex

The Potential for Green Jobs in Cumbria

report looks at the implications of a transition to net zero carbon by 2037 - a target date adopted by the Zero Carbon Cumbria Partnership. There could, on average, be 9,000 additional jobs, mostly in renewable electricity generation but also in transport, industry and waste management.
