A retired US attorney now living in Hampshire, UK. After 25 years as an intellectual property attorney in private practice and high tech firms in Silicon Valley, she has begun a transition to environmental activism. This transition was catalyzed by Franny Armstrong’s film, “The Age of Stupid.”
Recalling her own resistance to watching the film, and the resistance of others with whom she tried to share it, she is all too aware of the psychological challenges of coming to grips with the seriousness of impending environmental changes. This awareness motivates her work with Hans Joergen and his team to help bring about the level of awareness and activity needed to keep the planet habitable for humans and wildlife.
Liza’s hobbies include wildlife photography and European languages (particularly French, German, Italian, Russian, Hungarian and Spanish).

Could people really allow climate change to wreck our planet? After the Paris Agreement by World Leaders in December 2015, I am very concerned at the slow progress with the essential action required to reduce and remove CO2. Having spent 20+ years in sales, working for major computer companies, my instinct is the Paris Agreement is going to get implemented only if enough of us show politicians and World Leaders we want them to take action to keep global warming well below 2C.
It’s time to reach out to the wider public and inform them about the threats and solutions to climate change, and what people can do about it. That’s why I am leading the N0CO2 project for Saving Our Planet – to make it easy for people to help stop climate change.

Julie as been active for many causes: against war, for nuclear disarmament, against ethnic cleansing, for human rights.
She co-founded AMIFELINS, a French association for the protection of felines in nature. But James Hansen’s book Storms of my Grandchildren convinced her that climate change is the greatest threat to our future. Realizing that young people particularly need to understand the situation, as they will bear the brunt of the changes but are also the future leaders and decision-makers, she wrote the illustrated novel Let’s Save our Planet (and its French version, Sauvons la Planète), which in a lively and creative way explains the danger of climate change to young people.
Her hobbies include photography and writing speculative fiction.
