George Monbiot Life

George Joshua Monbiot (MON-bee-oh, born 27 January 1963) is a British writer best known for his environmental and political activism.

He writes a weekly column for The Guardian and is the author of a number of books, including Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain (2000) and Out of the Woods: A New Politics in the Age of Crisis (2017).

He is the creator of The Land is Ours, a movement for the right to explore the countryside and its resources in the United Kingdom.

Early life

Monbiot was born in Kensington, Oxfordshire, and he grew up in Rotherfield Peppard, Oxfordshire. Raymond Monbiot, his father, is a businessman who chaired the Conservative Party's trade and industry forum. Rosalie, his mother and former chief of South Oxfordshire District Council, was a conservative councillor and former chairman of Gresham Cooke MP. Canon Hereward Cooke, his uncle, was the Liberal Democrat deputy leader of Norwich City Council.

He was educated at Stowe School in Buckinghamshire, following a preparatory boarding school. He was a winner of an open scholarship to Brasenose College, Oxford. Monbiot has said that reading Bettina Ehrlich's book Paolo and Panetto as a boy at his prep school sparked his "political awakening" and that he regretted attending Oxford.

Personal life

Monbiot has lived in Oxford for the most part, but he spent a few years in Machynlleth, Montgomeryshire, beginning with his then-wife, writer, and activist Angharad Penrhyn Jones and their daughter. Monbiot returned in 2012 because his new partner lives in Oxford. Monbiot's second child, the couple's daughter, was born in early 2012. Monbiot was diagnosed with prostate cancer in December 2017 and underwent surgery in March 2018.


George Monbiot Career


Monbiot joined BBC Natural History Unit as a radio producer, producing natural history and environmental studies after graduating with a degree in zoology. He joined the BBC World Service, where he briefly worked as a current affairs producer and host, before deciding to investigate and write his first book.

He travelled in Indonesia, Brazil, and East Africa as an investigative journalist. His work culminated in his being named a non grata in seven countries and being sentenced to life imprisonment in absentia, Indonesia. He was also shot and killed by military forces, shipwrecked, and stung into a poisoned coma by hornets in these areas. After being declared clinically dead in Lodwar General Hospital in north-western Kenya, suffering from cerebral malaria, he returned to work in the United Kingdom.

He joined the British roads protest movement and was regularly called on to give press interviews; as a result, he was described as a "media tart" by organizations such as Green Anarchist and Class War. Security guards allegedly drove a metal spike through his foot, fracturing the middle metatarsal bone. His injuries kept him in the hospital. Sir Crispin Tickell, a former United Nations diplomat who was then Warden at Green College, Oxford, named the young activist a Visiting Fellow.

In a tweet in November 2012, he apologised to Lord McAlpine for his "stupidity and thoughtlessness" in implying that the Conservative peer was a paedophile.

Monbiot wrote an essay about loneliness in 2014. Ewan McLennan, a composer, was involved in a joint venture. In October 2016, they released an album called Breaking the Spell of Loneliness, as well as a tour of the United Kingdom. "Each song is a short, eloquent, and thought provoking essay on the demise of our humanity and how it can be revived," Folk Radio described it as "an enthralling album."

When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone Park, Monbiot narrated the film How Wolves Change Rivers, which was based on his TED talk on the restoration of ecosystems and landscape (rewilding). In 2019, Monbiot co-presented Nature Now, a film about natural climate solutions, with Greta Thunberg. He appeared in the Netflix documentary Seaspiracy, which focuses on the human impact on marine life and fishing, and he has received acclaim from critics.

Monbiot outlined how difficult it is to campaign for Earth's survival in the face of what he sees as overwhelming inaction in early 2022.


Mother, 40, who 'fell in love' with jailed Just Stop Oil activist who faces being deported to Germany for Dartford Crossing bridge protest pleads for him to be allowed to stay in Britain, April 19, 2024
Marcus Decker climbed 200 feet up the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge over the River Thames in Dartford, Kent, then camped in a hammock for 40 hours, forcing police to close the crossing and causing giant jams in the 2022 protest two years ago. He was jailed for two years and seven months for the stunt - and told he would be deported when released. But now a campaign to prevent this, led by his girlfriend, Holly Cullen-Davies, 40, is taking off. Ms Cullen-Davies, previously a single mum, has told how she 'fell in love' with Decker three years ago and he has 'become a wonderful stepfather' to her two children.

A brilliant new book by a Cambridge professor warns: Stop blaming everything on climate change!, June 25, 2023
MIKE HULME: On the BBC's website for children, one of the negative effects of future global warming lay out. However, it also pointed out that warmer temperatures might lead to healthier outdoor lifestyles, increased shipping routes in the Arctic, and greater access to oil in Alaska and Siberia. Climate scientists and climate pressure organizations have voiced their displeasure with Cue's outrage. The BBC denied that such 'benefits' were mentioned in a tweet. Children were still learning about the negative effects of climate change. This was a clear example of how the prevailing 'climatism' ideology insists on a single narrative from which there can be no deviation.

JAMIE BLACKETT: Jeremy Clarkson is the patron saint of farmers!We're besieged by badger huggers, April 20, 2023
Farmers like me have been impoverished for two decades, sacked by Nimby neighbours, trumped up in red tape, and, worst of all, activists on social media have frequently attacked animal rights activists and militant vegans. The 'culture wars' have erupted from university campuses to our green and formerly lush farmland. George Monbiot, a Guardian journalist, has openly advocated for the demise of farming and its replacement by factory-produced laboratory foods to achieve 'Net Zero'. We can't even turn on the television without being told to be redundant and guilty by our publicly funded broadcaster. The traditional farming community is seen as anti-nature, wholly accountable for the climate and wildlife 'crises' and even racial, according to BBC One's Countryfile.
