What do you think of the role of culture in climate change / moving towards an ecological age?
The one won't happen without the other...
What is your biggest concern re. climate change?
The biggest worry is that we miss the boat.
What is your biggest inspiration re. climate change?
That's a good question... And I'm not sure of the answer. The heroes are the scientists, but they are not necessarily the inspiration. At the moment we lack real inspirations - in the way that aparteid had Mandela. Al Gore, for instance, is too patrician a figure to be a real inspiration. Figureheads are always dangerous things but it's interesting that the best the climate change movement has produced is a middle aged politocrat in a suit.
What do you think you can do to help prevent / minimise climate change?
The idea of transition must be shown to be exciting and inspiring, rather than a drudge.
