Christopher Dorman

Christopher has moved on from his initial career as a hydroelectric engineer in Papua New Guinea through violin making to teaching in electronics, science and mathematics. He is president of Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) for the ACT region.

Deeply concerned about our local and world environment, he attends many events in Canberra with like-minded citizens. His doctorate in risk engineering would explain why he pays attention to the big risks around food security, the sale of farming land to non-residents, the consequences of peak oil (which has already occurred) and the risks around future nuclear generated power, previous disasters having been neatly papered over.

The accelerating speed of world and local environmental destruction, since 2005 (his nominated date) is of awesome proportion. He takes his own advice as a practising naturopath and does serious exercise 6 days a week.
