Hi, my name is Katherine Thorne. I am a second year Environmental Science student at Plymouth University. I am passionate about conservation and climate change and much like Obama I too believe that…
“No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change,” Obama, 2015. Source: CNN
And so it is my ambition to make some kind of positive difference in way of the environment throughout my life, so that future generations can enjoy the beauty of our planet just as we have.
The purpose of this blog is to bring to your attention some of the fantastic strides that are being made in the combat of climate change, I feel that this topic is not covered in the news nearly enough, and can leave you feeling a little helpless and disheartened, hopefully this blog will show you that it’s not all doom and gloom.
If this blog has interested you in any way I would highly recommend reading the book The Optimistic Environmentalist by David R. Boyd. Its a fantastic read and a book that inspired me to study an Environmental Science Degree. It is filled with environmental success stories some you may of heard of and some you may not.
