Where in the world are you?
Wellington New Zealand
What do you do in the world?
Pull coffee shots, write long and short essays and illustrate my living room.
In one sentence, what is climate change?
A devastating consequence of selfish human thought.
How does climate change affect your life?
The degradation of ecosystems is all around us. Drought, water pollution and extreme weather conditions affect all living organisms (except maybe cockroaches). Most devastating are the effects that these changes have on the world's most vulnerable people.
What do you feel you can do about it?
I don't drive....and it's all very well to recycle, buy organic food and say no to plastic bags. But fundamentally I think that the governments and corporations that put capital gains before responsibility to nature and all it entails need to be exposed, be he held accountabe and accept responsibility. I hope that some of my research and writing can inspire and influence this.
Do you feel there is more you could do? If so, what is stopping you from doing those things?
Yes. Essentially the time needed to endlessly lobby our governments. I also think it's fundamentally necessary to address and work against the effects of climate change in third world and developing countries. Something that geography makes difficult.
What's your favourite Sunday afternoon activity?
I like to get out and go for a walk, cycle or a swim. Followed by dinner at a friends house.
