I still don’t talk about this decision that we have made to not fly very much as it’s just too awkward.
After my long blog post about how necessary it is for those of us in the top 20% of incomes who create 70% of C02 emissions to change our lifestyles I’ve been working on this image: Sometimes I think the link is lost between the fact that individual actions to reduce climate change (like eating lessContinue reading “Individual to collective action”
The IPCC report last year stated that we need to cut carbon emissions in half in the next 12 years to have any chance of keeping under 1.5 degrees of warming. We’re at about 1.1 degrees of warming now and there is currently a record heatwave in Australia with temperatures nearing 50 degrees. There areContinue reading “Climate Change and Individual Action”
View at Medium.com Julia Steinberger wrote a great article about the individual actions that you can take to counter climate breakdown: An Audacious Toolkit:Actions Against Climate Breakdown . Before I read the article I had been working on these two cartoons about the same subject. I think the first one helps to illustrate her article,Continue reading “Individual vs Collective Action”

As our one return flight per year for our family (I’ve written numerous blog posts on flying less and how important it is to combat climate change) we booked a trip to Piedmont in Italy so we could go to a friends wedding. It was absolutely beautiful there and this is my cartoon of theContinue reading “Italian summer”

Once you’ve spent a few Sunday afternoons in the garden with 747s hurtling overhead deadening the possibility of conversation or relaxation, and have been woken up at 3am then 4:30am then 5:30am by the noise of cargo planes, you are noContinue reading “Air travel and internet giants”
I drew this a while ago, but given that Piste 01 is in action today and woke me at 4:30am it’s still relevant. It’s mind-boggling that despite several court orders against Brussels airport planes are still flying this low over a densely populated residential area all through the night in the capital of the EuropeanContinue reading “Piste 01”
