1. I’ve mentioned Dave Reay before. He and I worked together when I was in Edinburgh and I certainly recognise him in this sentence, “Reay is probably enthusiastic about a lot of things …”, from this article in The Guardian the other day, ‘Carbon is my thing’: the climate geek trying to erase his footprint’. He’s bought his own farm on the Mull of Kintyre, with the intention of repaying his and his wife’s lifetime carbon debt https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/nov/04/carbon-climate-geek-trying-to-erase-his-footprint-aoe
2.
