Nick Lyth is Founder and Director of Green Angel Syndicate, the only angel investment syndicate in the UK specialising in the fight against Climate Change and Global Warming. 

In an unprecedented crisis never apparently experienced before, as Climate Change, is it possible to learn lessons from history?
