Just have a think!

with David Borlace

Aside from the planned and successful Action Days, I've been meeting up with local Horley members to deliver leaflets. Last weekend I met up with David Borlace. He has a very interesting day job which he explained while we were pounding the streets around Smallfield Road.

David had worked in retail for the last 20 years. Then about four years ago he had life-changing experience: He read a book called A Farewell to Ice by Peter Wadhams. In the book, Wadhams reports on the melting Arctic sea ice and the catastrophic consequences of this continued occurrence.

The book inspired David to start producing some occasional videos and publishing them on You Tube. Then when the pandemic hit last year, David was furloughed. The setback actually allowed David to devote more time to his channel, entitled Just have a think.  


The videos have become very popular. He has now got nearly 750,000 subscribers from all over the world, and thousands paying subscribers through Patreon. This has meant he is in a position to quit his day job and focus on his skill and passion. 

I'm grateful for David to come help out in the campaign.
