Why am I cycling to Paris? Because we need to take action now to secure a habitable planet and I think it is a really appropriate way to join the gathering in Paris. For about the last 20 years I have been taking action to reduce my carbon footprint and in particular after watching the film 'An Inconvenient Truth' in 2006 I decided to focus even more on this. I'm now involved in a community renewable energy project and I've also been running community-based energy-saving projects. It's a hard road but a vital one, and ultimately rewarding - what could be better than helping our world to transition to a healthy, sustainable way of life?
Chas managed to get an article in his local newspaper about the cycle ride - see below
