Dr Graeme McLeay worked for a time in general practice and then trained and worked as an anaesthetist in the private and public sectors from 1973 until retiring in 2010.
He has always been interested in reading science writing, especially the biological sciences, and has been following climate science since the early nineties.
Graeme has loved sailing since his youth, hence an interest in meteorology and navigation. He has sailed most of the east coast and twice around Tasmania.
Graeme's reason for joining medical advocacy group, Doctors for the Environment Australia, is his “activism”, which stems from his anger and despair about the world we will be leaving his grandchildren – now aged 7, 6 and 5 – if “business as usual continues”.
