John outlines his love of the natural world and the action he takes on a daily basis to prevent its destruction.

For three decades John has been making choices which have led to him leading an exceptionally low carbon lifestyle. John's research has led him to believe that if we continue with our current high- consumption lifestyle patterns, we will render the planet uninhabitable, and as a lover of life, this makes John sad. However, although the future is looking bleak, John feels that continuing to be 'Green' is the only appropriate way forward.
