More about our Steering Group members
Fred Miller works as a gardener, composter and conservationist. He says ‘We rapidly need to build a zero carbon vision (and reality) for Gloucestershire by 2030. At the same time we need to inspire and engage with global processes that will stop the rising levels of greenhouse gas emissions.
Hugh is a Chartered Scientist (geologist) working in nuclear decommissioning, a husband and parent, and an active member of a local church. ‘Being a geologist makes climate change look worryingly rapid to me. I am convinced that what happens in this decade (2021-30) will almost certainly decide whether a form of human civilization I would want to live in will last beyond the lifetimes of many people who are alive today. A particular concern of mine is to get people talking (at all levels) about the need for a global regulatory mechanism to control and limit extraction of fossil carbon. I am also keen to find ways of addressing climate change that are not adversarial but more in the spirit of a ‘common quest’’.
Vaughan is a freelance commercial translator and formerly a teacher of languages. He enjoys reading, walking and gardening, and cycling for everyday and work purposes. He is interested in climate science. He considers that the lessons of history show that current fossil fuel use and the loss of our climate are not somehow ‘normal’, and that we have the free will to choose a better path.
