Iconic British TV Weatherman Michael Fish BASE Jumps for Climate Change
Iconic TV Weatherman Michael Fish has teamed up with Rapanui Clothing and completed a BASE jump to raise awareness of climate change. 68yr old Michael Fish made the freefall jump, landing by parachute, after training with experienced urban BASE jumpers.
Michael Fish MBE said:
“Raising awareness of climate change is really important, because there is no doubt whatsoever that if we carry on the way we are, there will be shortages of food, shortages of water, towns and cities will be flooded, there's all sorts of chaos that could arise, in fact some of it is already happening.
We have to do something about it now, not wait until it's too late. If some of us have to make sacrifices, like risking our lives by jumping off buildings, then so be it”
Climate change is really important to us at Rapanui - we're all passionate about sustainability and all of our clothing is made in a wind-powered factory from eco fabrics like organic cotton and bamboo. The Michael Fish BASE Jump was a great opportunity for us to spread awareness of climate change - it is a serious issue and requires serious action; if a 68 yr old weatherman can jump off a building to spread the word, we can all at least turn off the light switch when we leave the room or think about sustainability when we vote with our wallets.
