Tell the Truth Sheffield was set up in 2019 when I was invited to start writing articles for the Sheffield Telegraph. This was a result of a big campaign by Sheffield Extinction Rebellion to stop the local papers printing letters and articles that deny the science of climate change or the importance of acting now to combat it. We demanded that the papers should tell the truth about the emergencies we are facing, and the Telegraph eventually responded by offering me a column. We now have a team of writers and try to ensure there is an article in the Sheffield Telegraph each week. It also covers the Nature Emergency and other related issues.

The blog also includes articles and letters written for other publications, and some posts that have not been published elsewhere.

If you have an idea for an article please get in touch.

Catastrophic climate change could become unstoppable.

I don’t like to say “I told you so” but this week’s frightening news that the world is likely to breach the 1.5C climate threshold by 2027 should come as no surprise if you have been reading my columns.  Countries pledged, under the 2015 Paris climate agreement,  to hold global temperatures to no higher than…
