About Us

John Gibbons Climatechange.ie is a not-for-profit website set up by John Gibbons, journalist and co-founder of healthcare publishing and communications specialists, MedMedia Group (www.medmedia.ie).

MedMedia Group was founded in 1991 and is based in Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. In addition to publishing around a dozen medical, nursing and general healthcare titles, it also operates a multi-award winning creative agency, MedMedia Campaign as well as two high-profile health-related websites, www.Irishhealth.com and the internationally acclaimed www.RateMyHospital.ie.

In addition to heading Climatechange.ie, Gibbons also contributes a weekly column to the Irish Times analysing aspects of climate change and sustainability. He also is a contributor on radio discussions and does occasional lectures for students in this area. To view some of his recent columns, click here.

"Climate change, global warming and the worldwide sustainability crisis are simply too important and too urgent to be left to 'someone else', so that's why we've decided to get involved", says Gibbons. "This crisis demands a massive response, from governments, the business sector and individuals.

"We have a very narrow window to agree and implement decisive policies that will give us a fighting chance of staving off the most dire global and local consequences of climate chaos and life after Peak Oil. Like it or not, we live in the Era of Consequences. Neither ignorance nor cynicism is a defence. For those armed with the facts, doing nothing is no longer an option.

"My young children face a profoundly uncertain future. They will still be relatively young in the middle of this century, as will millions of others. Can we wash our hands of responsibility for the kind of world they will inherit?".
