The truth about where the problem is on climate change action

Politicians have known the truth about climate change and they’ve willingly handed over our future to profiteers whose search for quick cash threatens our very existence.

Greta Thunberg understands very clearly what the problem is. She is 16.

So why do you not understand? Why do you keep voting for the same people/party/promises.

Its already to late to stop what’s coming in terms of massive climate change.

How bad a state will you leave our home for the generations to come?

It’s up to nobody but you, me and the person next to you. Take action.

Will you join me and call for an Antarctic Sanctuary?

Sitting at the bottom of the world, the Antarctic is home to a great diversity of life. Penguins, whales, seals and many more wonderful sea creatures live there.

But a warming climate and expanding industrial fishing poses a threat to this vital ocean and its iconic creatures.

The good news is we have the power to protect this ocean wonderland. This year, world leaders have the opportunity to create the largest protected area on Earth.

That’s why I’ve just signed the petition to call on governments to put the Antarctic first and secure an Antarctic Ocean Sanctuary.

Please join me on this campaign by adding your name too:

Thank you.

We did as good as nothing in response to climate change – Mayer Hillman Interview

The 86-year-old social scientist says accepting the impending end of most life on Earth might be the very thing needed to help us prolong it.

Read this great interview with Mayer Hillman for insight from someone who has research and advised decision makers for over 60 years.  One of the telling view points that really got me thinking were is comments on the shortsightedness of our thinking…

Hillman is amazed that our thinking rarely stretches beyond 2100. “This is what I find so extraordinary when scientists warn that the temperature could rise to 5C or 8C. What, and stop there? What legacies are we leaving for future generations? In the early 21st century, we did as good as nothing in response to climate change. Our children and grandchildren are going to be extraordinarily critical.
