This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at

I saw a movie, and the world collapsed December 9, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — ecoemails @ 10:21 am
Jessica Rayburn and G.R. Mantard have collaborated to create a new comic on climate change.
To mark the crucial UN climate summit in Copenhagen, they have published the comic online with free access to all.

‘I saw a movie, and the world collapsed’ tells G.R. Mantard’s own story of how he was inspired by climate change film Age of Stupid to calculate his carbon footprint and learn how to reduce it.

The story personally engages with the reader to communicate the science, the policy and the personal dilemmas. It climaxes by showing how low-carbon living is positive and enjoyable, and urges the reader to take action at personal, community and political level.
