Name: Brendan Whyatt

What first triggered your interest in environmental issues?

I was working on an Island in Greece in 1988 and noticed the vast difference between the air quality on that Island and the air quality in Athens

What are you working on, concerned by, or motivated by at the moment?

Hydropower

What do you anticipate working on, or thinking about, in relation to environmental issues over the next 1 year, 5 years, and 10 years?

Not sure

How optimistic or pessimistic are you as you look at where we might be in 2020, and why?

I think the world as a whole is becoming more aware of environmental issues but some of the wealthier counties such as America, France and Japan could make more effort. I also think that there is too much emphasis on personal responsibility within environmental policies and a lack of action being taken by heavy industry to reduce pollution outlet
