How to write a successful email if you’re researching an issue.

‘Dear James,

My name is David and I’m a Masters student at the University of Cardiff….”

‘Dear Dr Purnell

I came across your article on climate change in the Independent newspaper online in September 2020 where you say ‘doing nothing when you can, is as criminal as burning the rain forest. ‘

I’m David from Cardiff University and I’m writing an article for my university’s blog about climate change and the pressing need for action and what you said interested me for an article. Here is my school blog.

I was wondering whether you could spare ten minutes for a phone interview for me to ask you a few questions around your article. Would sometime this week, say Thursday or next Monday be ok?
