Marcus Brigstocke Cycles To The Maldives: Eco-Comic Is Beyond Parody

MARCUS Brigstocke is the comedian who is beyond parody. Brigstocke is the greenie dressed as a frozen turkey for Gaia, who travels by “eco-friendly” motorhome (it’s parked outside his house) and has Chinese solar panels.

Brigstocke is talking about his jolly holidays in the Independent: “My Life in Travel: Marcus Brigstocke, comedian.”

DEAR Anorak, How do I save the world? Here’s how:

It’s great. Here’s intrepid global warming explorer Francesca Galeazzi on “The search for the perfect iceberg”.

Yesterday for me was a roller-coaster of emotions: determination and failure, hope and fear, anticipation and disappointment.

One of my projects on board consisted of an artistic response to the melting and retreat of glaciers as result of climate change.
