Welcome to my blog “The Planet, the Politics and the Personal”.

I’ve set up this blog as a means of expressing my views on the world through these three themes.

You will read about my passion for the environment and among other such topics, what I think regarding the great task we have ahead in dealing with climate change.

I will also discuss politics over all levels, from the local issues, to world events.

And then in between all of those things, I’ll just blog about me..

Anyways, I hope you enjoy what you read, and feel free to comment and share!
