Some updates

Dear friends,

As you may have noticed, I'm giving even more climate talks now than I did as the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario, with no staff to help me. The public response is amazing, thank you - see some comments in the Testimonials.

Lost my voice two weeks ago and have given at least 11 talks since then plus many media interviews and meetings. So I only occasionally manage to update this webpage, but got some new events posted today.

Also, if I'm slow in responding to tweets, emails, etc.: I am doing as much as I can. Feel free to keep trying until you reach me. November is a very busy month; December may be quieter. Thank you very much to everyone for your support and kind words. I could not keep going without them.
