Today was my last day at Griffith. Having studied and worked in the School of Environment for the past 6 years I’ve to know so many great people, and I’ll miss the feeling of being a part of a place of learning and everything positive that comes with it. It’s given me a strong start to my career and hopefully a bunch of friends I’ll have for life! I hope that I can keep in touch with both the staff and other alumni over the years.
Of course, I’m not going to be out of the university system for too long: Imperial beckons, and in the meantime, the big wide world. With Kevin Rudd backing down on climate change legislation until the next election cycle, I feel I’ve made a good decision: I can’t sit and watch major problems, for which a scientific approach offers the best understanding and possible solutions, be decided on the whim of polls. I hope the contribution I can make will be a significant one, but even if it’s not, at least I’ll have tried.
