I have been talking about climate change for 15 years, and not flown on holiday for over a decade now. I do however love holidays in the UK, and also visiting different parts of Europe by train. I am a vegan (initially for the climate, then I found out about the appalling treatment of animals), drive an electric car – and give regular public talks about climate change, renewables and electric cars. Also one of the investors in climate change film ‘Age of Stupid’.
