About

I felt compelled to write this book to see if I can, in my own small way, help people to make the change that is necessary to prevent humans from causing climate change and destroying wildlife.

I am a geography graduate who worked as a Chartered Accountant and auditor for 20 years.  I became increasingly frustrated knowing that humans were slowly ruining our planet. Most people seemed to be blissfully unaware, and I was not doing anything about it.  I made a successful career change to work to promote sustainable development policy for a government agency.  I am now a member of the Institute of Water and work as an Energy Specialist.  However, this book is my own work, outwith my employed work role.  Any views expressed in the book are my own.

This book will help businesses and consumers to influence governments to set the right regulatory framework; to encourage businesses to offer consumers better choices; and to empower individuals to make better choices for our climate and for wildlife.

Climate Change Summit

My origninal intention was to publish Carbon Choices before the November 2020 climate change summit (now postponed to November 2021). This climate change summit, called COP 26 will be the largest conference ever held in the UK and will be the most important global summit ever held.  180 international leaders, over 30,000 international delegates plus journalists and protestors will come to Scotland. Some say it is the last chance for all countries to agree a stronger international treaty to reduce human induced climate change.  Without a strong agreement we are heading towards climate catastrophe.

An Apology

Apologies - anyone who bought a paperback version of Carbon Choices in Nov or Dec may have an 'imperfect' version.  This issue has now been resolved.  My 'agent' correctly uploaded the latest version to Amazon kindle in November 2020 but incorrectly also uploaded the kindle version to Amazon paperback.  These copies have 'kindle version' written on the inside cover and they have the wrong font, layout and no page numbers on the contents page.  Other than that it is fine - no errors in the actual content and at least it is the latest, most up to date version of Carbon Choices.
