“I believe there is an urgent need for people everywhere, whether in power or not, to adopt more environmentally friendly and sustainable practices at home, at work and even on holidays being mindful of the effects of their lifestyle and work on others. Governments and industry must plan and fund just transitions from fossil fuel based activities to renewable based industries now.”
