I spent two years studying Environmental Science – the where, what and the why. A decade later I spent another two years studying Geography. Everything from Environmental Law to who invented the telescope.
This week has all been about the proposal to build yet another telescope on Hawaiia, with damage to precious land and displacement of locals. I love space. After films and writing, space and all related topics would be next on my list. I got my first telescope aged 10,
and spent many nights pouring over maps of the moon and our solar system. I was one of the few kids who actually knew where The Sea of Tranquillity was!
But I am first and foremost an environmentalist. We only have one planet.
