We have all heard lots about Hurricane Harvey and the devastation it has caused. Meanwhile in South Asia, heavy monsoon rains and massive floods have caused the deaths of over 1000 people. Around 40 million people have been affected in India, Bangladesh and Nepal. This sort of extreme weather is what climate scientists have been predicting for some time and now it's coming true. Fortunately, there are many things that people can do to slow or stop climate change. But at present, not enough is being done. There are two problems. One -- the big one -- is climate change itself; the other is people who won't accept that the planet is getting hotter or that it is caused by humans using enormous quantities of fossil fuels (coal, oil, gas). Climate change is already seriously affecting millions of people (not to mention other animals and plants) and will soon be affecting billions unless people take big steps to tackle it. And yes, it will likely affect you, your family and friends in the near future so if you want to understand what's happening and what you can do, a good place to start is my Hot Earth guide.
Dear me, how quickly the time passes. I've been away in Norway. Wow, fabulous scenery with trolls everywhere (so I was told).Why? So now it's back to work, struggling to keep this website up-to-date and trying to find enough money to keep it going. Groan!
Well, I got there. I finally finished my Eating the Future guide. I brought it all up to date including two quizzes. Do take a look!
I've never done a blog before so this is all new to me. Anyway here goes…
Today, after hours and hours of work, I've finally got my new scrolling tab ready to roll. If you look at any of the homepages of my guides, you'll find a tab like the one on the right. Hover your mouse over it and see what happens. If it works (and it should!), you will see scrolling links to some of my regularly updated stuff. I do hope it does all work and you find it useful and fun!
