About

My name is John Bell.  I have been a Project Manager in the rail industry, am a father, and climate change activist.  I’m following my heart to attempt to make a difference in the world – hopefully for the better, hopefully I’ll succeed.

After much deliberation and consultation, I have concluded that the most fruitful way for me to make a difference in our response to climate change is to:

  • Work within my local town of Berkhamsted, UK, to show what is possible and help people get over their inertia about tackling the problem.  I will do this with Transition Town Berkhamsted, with whom I am the currently elected Co-leader.
  • Engage with wider organisations and initiatives to fit in with the wider picture and to encourage the formation of a definitive, known source of information for the layman on the scientific reality of climate change and our response to it.
  • Publicise my attempts and achievements via this blog and other means.

To follow my adventure, follow this blog, or follow me on Twitter or Facebook.

To get in touch, e-mail me at jubble@hotmail.co.uk (don’t ask – nickname from school), or comment.  I’d love to hear from you.  If you want to speak with me, please call me on +447811379938.

  1. Hello John – I read your article on the RTCC website and was quite impressed, and a little excited, too. We have similar stories it seems. I had a career in the computer business, then started my own small business which I closed in order to join the fight against climate change. The path I chose was to return to school and get a degree in environmental studies, then take my fight out to the world. I am currently attending U.C. Berkeley in California, USA and will finish my studies in International Environmental Politics in May 2014. I have signed to to follow your work and will be very interested in seeing how your endeavor proceeds. I am strategizing even now on how I might enter and join the fight to save the environment. Best of luck!! John
