Why did these architects become full-time climate change activists?


Don’t give up! There is a lot architects and the construction industry can do to help reduce global warming. Sitting on Waterloo Bridge and wasting police time isn’t really doing much, other than raise awareness. Great. Now for action. My company is calling on TfL to help us build a Cycle Superhighway along the South bank of the Thames, from Greenwich and Thamesmead to Hampton Ct. We will do this using Green Bonds and Carbon Credits. We are also calling on Ferrovial and the Dept of Transport to help build a new light railway round the M25 and out to Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, Northolt and City Airport to create London Airport. The runways at Heathrow will be closed, and the site redeveloped as a Carbon Neutral Garden City. We will need a lot of help! Sacking Chris Grayling is probably the first step. Getting the Mayors office onside is the next? Watch this space, get off the bridge, and start building some new ones over the Thames.
