A Brief Introduction To Climate Change: The Green Vitals

Welcome to the Green Vitals. This is a 10 module introduction to climate change, designed as a series of questions and answers. It aims to help you understand exactly what the key issues are, and to decide what changes you can make, custom-made for your unique life situation.

Whether you want to overhaul your life to become a climate-change-crusader or just make some simple changes to reduce your daily carbon footprint, it all starts with the same foundation:


Clarity on what the issues are, what we need to do to address them, and what you truly want for your future.

You may be at the beginning of your journey, just getting started and looking for some first information and ideas.

Or you may be well on your way, already with experience of taking actions or even studies on climate change.

I don’t pretend to have all the answers. But my goal is to help you find yours.

So, let’s start with some clarity on what the issues are at stake. 

A few words to prepare you: this is a challenging read…

  • Change is often uncomfortable, even plain terrifying, both mentally and emotionally.
  • It may make you question a lot of things. The evidence, your role, your government’s role and even the role of nature itself.
  • It may also irritate and upset you. From many angles, including the part you have played in this, that you are now. And about what lies ahead.

Are you ready to step up to a whole new level of responsibility? To change the way you live and some perhaps deeply ingrained habits?

It won’t always be easy. In fact, you may find it totally inconvenient. Not your priority now. Not your role. And not what you want next.

But if we stop, we will fall back to our old habits and quit…. On both ourselves and the entire planet.

Instead, how about trusting the voice inside that says, “YES, it’s time for me to step up and make the impact in the world that I am meant to make”.

Or trusting that small voice that says, “OK, you have just 5 minutes…”.

…. and read on.
