Fed up with feeling angry at the government’s clear reluctance to really put the environment first I thought it was time to channel that anger into something positive and so I created this blog about 2 years ago. But I felt apathetic and hopeless, and this blog sat unused until three things happened in close succession.
The first thing
The UN report on global warming came out and that shocked me to the core. I entered a period of almost mourning, I was going about my daily business with a dark cloud of existential threat hanging over me and yet everyone was just getting on with their normal business! It felt completely surreal, did no one else see what the world was heading to? I was hugging my kids tighter and feeling ever so sorry.
