Talks, sermons, lectures and media – Climate and environment

Many of these speaking engagements arose through my work on the Shrinking the Footprint campaign in the Diocese of Exeter. They also drew on my experience working at the Met Office, as an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Exeter, as a member of Transition Exeter, and while living in the eco-monastery at Mucknell Abbey.
