My name is Christopher Jackson and I am the author behind the blog “theviewfromlawrencestreet”. Lawrence Street was my home in York during my undergraduate degree and a place that shaped many of my views on the world.
This blog represents my personal views on some of the main political and economic issues that the world faces. I believe firmly in the power of ideas, in the importance of treating people fairly and in the awesome capacity of human creativity to change the world for the better. My personal passion is focused these days on Energy, specifically the question of how the world can transform to handle to challenge of climate change.
