A tribute to Stephen Hawking who has just died. Here is one of his quotes about climate change. 'Climate change is one of the great dangers we face and one we can prevent if we act now. By denying the evidence of climate change and pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, Donald Trump will cause avoidable environmental damage to our beautiful planet endangering the natural world for us and our children.'
A great thinker, inspiration to so many has been lost to us.
