Governments, Corporations or Individuals, Who Can Stop Climate Change?
The ecological crisis is at a tipping point. If we do not reduce the output of greenhouse emissions dramatically by 2030, we will trigger a catastrophic series of events which will be irrepressible. It is projected by The Grantham Institute on Climate Change that if we continue along our current path then in 2070 70-90 million people will be affected by flooding while two billion people will struggle with increased water scarcity. The impact will be so significant that millions of people will die and pressures on the Western states will cause a total political and economic collapse. This is a truly global issue that requires dramatic change across the world, however, will the individuals changing their behaviour stop climate change.Governments, Corporations or Individuals, Who Can Stop Climate Change?

Rewilding could be the key to carbon capture
We can and should change our lifestyles to combat global warming, but everyone knows it will take time. Meanwhile, there’s an awful lot of carbon sloshing around in the atmosphere, heating us up, turning our coasts into sea and our land into deserts. And according to Nature, there is hope-rewilding. Here’s what they say Restoring […]Rewilding could be the key to carbon capture
Is This The Only Thing We Need Do To Save The Planet?
Before I get started there are a couple of things you should know. The first is I’m a pilot. (What? Didn’t you know!?) My choice of profession means I’m responsible for pumping copious amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. (Seriously a fucking lot!) It should also be said I love to do this in […]Is This The Only Thing We Need Do To Save The Planet?
