About Planet: Critical
This is a critical time for our planet. It demands critical thinking. The climate crisis is the result of a failed system. To survive it, we must understand the intersection of energy, economics and politics. To thrive, we must build a better world—for everyone.

I investigate why the world is in crisis—and what to do about it.
My world-exclusive investigations into greenwashing in the fashion and finance industries have been published in the Guardian, Al Jazeera and The Intercept, and I regularly contribute to Mongabay on the climate corruption driving geopolitics in the Pacific. I’m a lecturer at the University of the Arts London, visiting lecturer at Black Mountains College, and work with independent organisations as a climate consultant.
I am also available for speaking engagements on the carbon credit trade, the intersection of the energy, economic and ecological crises, and Making Sense of the Crisis. Get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
