Biography:

On our journey across the world from Oxford, England, to Oxford, New Zealand, we stayed with people living underground to escape the heat in Tunisia, experienced the terrible flooding in Bombay and stayed on a farm in South Australia where they struggle to crow crops due to the drought. In New Zealand we stayed at the Eco Inn where they use solar PV, solar thermal, micro hydro, micro wind, river water for washing and rain water for drinking. Once back in the UK we joined COIN and learnt much more about climate change. After reading HEAT by George Monbiot we gave up flying and changed our jobs to focus on the environment.
