Addressing environmental issues is a big topic. There are many different ways to approach these issues, some based on individual actions and others on collective actions, some passive, some active. the greentomato way is to live our lives and build businesses according to a set of values that we think are pragmatic and can make a real difference. But we are always keen to hear new ideas, to challenge our assumptions and to improve and accelerate our progress. We think improving the world should be an inclusive, democratic process underpinned by transparency and debate. We believe any genuine attempt to improve the world we live in should be listened to and discussed. We provide a platform for these debates through an open blog.  Let us know what you think on our blog page.

Climate change is caused by increased solar activity, not humans.


Truth: The sun provides almost all the energy in the earth’s climate, so it clearly has a strong influence on the climate. Prior to 1960’s changes in solar activity and global climate were shown to be strongly proportional.

However, in the past 35 years, studies have shown solar activity to be diminishing, whilst the climate has shown a steady warming trend. This indicates that any recent change in global warming must be attributable to a different source. In fact, it is likely that a decline in solar activity is having a slowing (negative) effect on global temperature rise. Conversely, the warming trend over the past 35 years is directly proportional to recent rises in carbon dioxide emissions.
