As world leaders gather for the COP21 Paris climate change summit, it is more important than ever for us to tackle climate change. When I uploaded this a year ago, it was the UN Summit on Climate Change in New York; there were linked climate demonstrations and we learnt the news that not only is China the worlds largest CO2 emitter, it now also emits more per person than the E.U. countries. We are constantly bombarded by these and similar statistics, so I wanted to tell you my story and make it a bit more personal to mark this week.
I filmed much of this footage in late June but it has taken me until now to put this together, but it is something that is close to my heart - something that I wanted to really put in perspective and portray with a real personal touch.
What do you think? Have I succeeded in giving you a glimpse of the impact our warming world is personally having?
