In your view, what do our leaders here in Wales, the UK and around the world need to do to solve climate change?
First step to finding a solution to any challenge is identifying and accepting the challenge. First the world and the global leaders need to accept climate change is real and there is need for more global collective action and collaboration towards mitigation climate change effect. There is a need to start making deliberate policies to cut down emissions, ranging from car used, to farming, to packaging. A cost needs to be attached to any life activity that has the slightest carbon footprint.
Why have you become a Climate Cymru ambassador?
Anything climate change attracts my attention. I feel strongly the world need more awareness about this subject. With more awareness and enlightenment, together we can build a climate friendly community and secure our future.
As a nation, what do you feel we need to do to truly influence change?
As one of the global leaders, this country can make the right policies that can trickle down and influence developing countries looking on to her for leadership.
What makes you optimistic for the future with regards to climate change?
I think people are getting more and more aware about the danger climate change portends, from unexpected flooding as we have seen in Germany recently to uncontrollable wild fire as is consistently being witnessed in Australia. Weather is increasingly becoming unpredictable and unstable, earth temperature is rising, water level rising, more people no longer see all these as mere hoax, the reality is staring us all boldly in the face. This will trigger collaborative action. The more people accept this challenge, the more we get ready to solve it collectively. I think in the next few decades, there will be intensified global effort towards mitigation and provision of strategic solutions to climate change. I am highly optimistic.
