I have had a long and productive working life focused primarily on public policy and governance. I am extremely grateful for all the career opportunities afforded to me however I believe that it is time to put my skills to a far better use. That is why I decided to join the Australia Climate Action Fund Board. There is no issue of greater importance facing us than the emerging climate disaster. Without immediate action the only inheritance we will leave our children is a polluted and decimated environment. I believe it is time for us all to make a contribution with our money and our resources into protecting and restoring our precious environment for the benefit of those who follow. Please join me and the Australia Climate Action Fund in making a real impact on reducing carbon dioxide emissions and creating a safer and more sustainable future for us all.
