Weekly words – I think that I shall never see …

I first came across Chris Mooney at the Australian Science Communicators National Conference in Sydney, 2012 when he was a freelance journalist focusing on climate change. Chris has published four books about science and climate change.

He is now writing about energy and the environment at The Washington Post and demonstrating how nature is good for our mental health and brain function, whether it is walking in nature, living near trees, visiting rubbish-free beaches or just looking at pictures of nature (gosh, image how good a visit to Kangaroo Island would make you feel!). Chris has brought these themes together in the last article in the series, The staggeringly large benefits of conserving nature.

The Guardian also chips in on the benefits of trees.

And if the rate at which trees are being chopped down is making you think people don’t like them (“I love trees but … ) please have a look at this. So wonderful in so many ways.
