2013 is proving to be a year when climate change is made visible almost daily. As the heat bites across the US and we think back to the floods in Canada, monsoon floods in India and so much more during last month the weather is the news. We know that climate change means more extreme weather events and more frequently. I dont think any of us thought that the speed and frequency and extremity of this would seem so real so suddenly
While hurricanes, bushfires, droughts, and the rapid melting of polar ice make visible the impact of the climate change we are causing, the question remains what are we going to do about it .
Sadly it does not look like governments can or will solve this .
So if they won’t then it leaves it up to the rest of us . Businesses, community groups, concerted college action, or churches or local governments, court cases or whatever.Whether its thousands of you taking action or you and your friend we want to tell about what you are doing, not only so that others know but also so it inspires others to take action too.
We want to help you tell about what you are doing –so feel free to tell us and we’ll pass it on to all our readers . We can tell it as an article. Feel free to send us what you want told in article form .or put it up in the projects section or tell about your organisation or action. It’s free of course and its freely available to you .
So whatever it is you’re taking action on –whether its your school refusing to use fossil fuels, your college, faith community or city divesting, or you are fighting to save a threatened species, protesting against the drilling in the Arctic, or converting your neighborhood to wind or providing solar to your community .
Whether you are taking court cases to stop wastage or devastation , organising a demonstration against something that presents massive environmental hazards,standing for your Council on a renewable energy platform, or out taking the message of sustainability to your local school or your local representaive.
Whether you are building off-grid , or on the edge of a low carbon technology.
Or anyone of another million things. We want to help you tell the world .
