Over the years, I have been quoted or interviewed by various publications as an expert on climate and energy policy. Broadcast media interviews have included BBC, ITV, Sky News and Reuters television, particularly during the UN climate change summit that led to the Paris Agreement in 2015 and earlier in my career while at WWF and Friends of the Earth (see ‘youthful’ photo below!).
Despite being a board member of the3million, I chose not to act frequently as a spokesperson as I prefer to focus on my climate and energy core area of expertise, but here are two examples where I did – as an opinion piece author on Huffington Post and as a media spokesperson for Italian TV.
Here is a very limited sample of quotes over the years:
