my name`s Lewis. I`m a climate activist based in Hull, but am currently in Argentina, working on climate change awareness projects for schools in South America. I look forward to following your blog. However, i feel you could have really made it that extra bit more exciting (and maybe credible, although what you are doing is totally credible, and great) by getting there without flying!
I came to south America on a cargo ship, and am going to try to return by sailboat. Bit more of a mission to get to your destination of course, but hey – what a mission it’d be!
and in reply…
Absolutely I could. I’m very aware of that myself. And if I had had the brain to sort it out far enough in advance, I would. I’m looking at the options to offset the emissions but as yet haven’t found a way of doing this that I’m convinced is entirely credible. Any ideas?
