Jeremy Wire's Letter

To all those I leave behind,

The latest UN report says we have 9 years to keep our carbon emissions down to a level that will mean global heating will be around 1.5°C. By that time I'll be 79 and approaching my end of days I guess - and the thought of overstretched health services, weather bombs of various cause (heat, flood, drought) and general civil unrest from lack of food, water, and just personal security, frighten me to death. This is not what I was hoping to leave you all. As you know, I spent most of my adult life campaigning to bring about change. It's my greatest disappointment that nobody who could do anything actually did anything!
