We have known about the possibility and the consequences of climate change since the 1960s. Yet little has been done to counter it. We hold conferences and sign agreements, but we continue to pursue economic growth through the extraction and burning of fossil fuels. We have wreaked havoc on the v...
Denying climate change is tantamount to saying you don’t believe in gravity. The science of climate change is not a belief, a religion, or a political ideology. It presents facts that are measurable and verifiable.
The world is on fire. The hour is late. The moment of consequence is upon us.
"Who we understand ourselves to be determines the choice we will make. That choice determines what will become of us. The choice is both simple and complex, but above all it is urgent."
All over the...
The majority of us know that climate change exists. We see what has already begun happening around us. We understand the extreme consequences we will be faced with, our decendants will be faced with, if we continue on this road of destruction.
But it is scary and overwhelming. We don't know...
In just 50 years we have driven the planet out of the previous benevolent Holocene and into the Anthropocene, a new geological period in which biogeochemical conditions are dominated not by natural processes but by the impact of human activity. Humans are for the first time ever the prime driver ...
Let us not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless when facing them.
Climate deniers continue to say they don't 'believe' in climate change, prominent figures like Donald Trump amongst them.
Climate Change is already happening! No matter where we were born or where we live, it is already affecting us all. To deny it is irresponsible.
"Climate deniers a...
We have to wake up to the fact that we can choose our future and collectively create it. Our collective responsibility is to ensure that a better future is not only possible but probable, and then not only probable but foreseeable.
Anger that sinks into despair is powerless to make a change. Anger that evolves into conviction is unstoppable.
Climate change is not an issue of the survival of the planet, it is an issue of the survival of the human species.
Climate change should be of concern to all who care about health. Over 7 million people die from air pollution yearly.
Climate change should be of concer...
We are not doomed. We are not incapable.
This is our moment of truth.
Future generations may look back upon this moment as the single most significant turning point in human history.
We are all part of something great.
"No matter how complex or deep our differences, we fun...
Geological time used to be long and slow. The evironmental stability of the Holocene allowed the human species to evolve and thrive.
But over the past 50 years, we have severely damaged this stability. Half the world's tropical forests have been lost. The populations of wild mammals, birds,...
The most important thing is our state of mind.
"Be the change you want to see." - Gandhi
Three mindsets are fundamental:
The planet will survive, in changed form no doubt, but it will survive. The question is whether we will be here to witness it.
The devastation is a growing possibility but not yet our inevitable fate. The full story has not been written. We still hold the pen. We can still choose to write a story of regeneration of both nature and the human spirit. But we have to choose NOW.
We need to achieve net-...
We cannot bring back the extinct species, the melted glaciers, the dead coral reefs, or the destroyed primary forests. The best we can do is keep the changes within a manageable range, staving off total calamity, preventing the disaster that will result from the unchec...
There are those who acknowledge climate change but do not believe that they can do anything about it. They grief over the loss of ecosystems and biodiversity. They have lost all faith in our collective capacity to challenge the course of human history. This grief is arguably a major reason climat...
We are at the precipice. If we continue the old ways, resources will diminish further. Scarcity will dominate the world. Rebellion, war and chaos will follow. Welcome to the thunderdome!
Or we can take the steps to create a new world, where humans and nature live in harmony, where compassio...
We can no longer afford the indulgence of feeling powerless. We can no longer afford to assume that addressing climate change is the sole responsibility of national or local governments, or corporations or individuals. This is an everyone-everywhere mission in which we...
We can create a future where things not only stabilise but eventually get better. We can have more efficient and cheaper transportation. We can have cleaner air. We can practise smarter uses of natural resources. We are capable of changing course.
We have the social and political awareness....
Impossible is not a fact. It is an attitude.
Another person’s success is not our loss; it is our constantly growing collective success.
