A LETTER FROM JOHN BERGER
During many years of professional work in the fields of renewable energy and environmental policy, I have been deeply concerned about the effects of human activities on the environment. My focus was originally on the environmental impacts of energy technologies. After studying the energy options globally available, I was convinced by the mid-1970s that the most economically and environmentally sound way forward required the vigorous adoption of renewable energy and efficiency technologies. In the decades and books that followed, I strongly advocated for those technologies and for more intensive use of environmental restoration technologies to repair damaged natural resource systems.
Through all these concerns, I came to the study of climate change in the 1980s and have come to view it as the paramount issue of our time. It affects all humanity as well as the entire Earth, together with all its ecosystems and life.
This website is intended both as an overview of my professional work and as a news and information source on energy, climate, and natural resources. Thus it contains links to my recently published articles, information and comments about my books, along with my climate blog, useful links on the Resources page, and selected news feeds.
