The blog covers my life at the University of Edinburgh as a geology student, Student Ambassador and as a resident presiding in the Athens of the North. If you want to learn about the amazing geology of Scotland or explore the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde nature of the city, this is the space to chart! I cover poetry, geology seminars, field trips, university life, tourism in Edinburgh and everything Scottish.
The Topic Idea
We are people who think on the short term. Capitalism thinks on the short term profits. Climate change is a longer range problem, which will need long term solutions. Politicians are slow at reacting to problems. Especially in a democracy. Plus they are there to look out for the interests of their voters within a single nation.
