I’m Bob Bristow and my home is Auckland, born in Germany, grew up in the U.K and spent some time in Hong Kong and the Middle East, as a system engineer, before settling down in New Zealand. I became interested in climate science after reading media articles from a local denier, and have taken several on-line courses, including courses from Professors David Archer, Richard Alley and Stefan Rahmstorf. I hope we can keep the global average temperature below a 2°C rise and limit and mitigate the damage our industrial revolution has already done.
