David Bristow

David cannot recall exactly when he became ozone friendly. What he does recall contemplating things like energy efficiency long before he learned anything about Watts and Amps. School protests in 1976 lit a spark and the next year saw him studying how to be a muckraking journalist. There the author started spending weekends rock climbing, with people who seemed to know an awful lot about stuff like plants and rocks and ecosystems. This so impressed him that he went on to study earth sciences. More than four decades and some 20 books later, he has been fortunate to realise a long-time dream – becoming a paperback writer. Big Pharma, Dirty Lies, Busy Bees and Eco Activists is his fourth “non-fiction narrative” published by Jacana Media and, he says, he’s not done yet.
