Thinking out loud

About

ryanlloydRyan Lloyd is 22 years old and an undergraduate student at The Open University, studying towards a BSc (Honours) Environmental Science degree. He is an aspiring author in both fiction and non-fiction, typically writing about philosophy and science. He is currently writing his first novel called Ecollapse, a story set in a post-cataclysmic world. Jenson Arms, an environmental scientist and activist reflects on how he tried to change the world before human activity and natural disasters wiped out the ecosystem, including more than half of the global population. Society is on the verge of collapse and it is up to Jenson and the Earthlings movement to figure out a new way to survive, that enables humanity to thrive without damaging what is left of planet Earth.

As a student of Environmental Science, it has come to my attention that many are unaware of the effect they are having on the Earth and consequently the effect Earth is having upon us. We are the ecosystem yet people behave like they are separate and it is this detachment that I am hoping to re-attach and re-instate into people’s minds, that ultimately we are in fact damaging ourselves.
