Scroll down....

Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Flying is a climate crime. Blunt, but true.



It was a harsh decision to make, but when I first read about the damage that airlines do the atmosphere in terms of climate change, I decided not to fly again if I could help it. That was in 1990, and I still stand by that decision. Read my article on world.edu, and you'll know more about why I made it.
