 #CLIMATEEMERGENCY: 

“They don’t give a stuff”

“As many scientists have said, we are buggered, we are rooted, we are stuffed. (…) It is time to act, or die.”
~ Jeremy Buckingham, member of New South Wales parliament for The Greens

On 7 June 2018, Jeremy Buckingham decided it was time to give the New South Wales parliament the bad news:

“Humanity is heading towards oblivion. While we mostly faff around in this place, talking and making laws about anything but the most pressing issue of our time, the world is getting hotter and we are locking in our demise.

As many scientists have said, we are buggered, we are rooted, we are stuffed. It is time to explode the great lie that everything is okay; the great lie that we can address climate change without radical and rapid action to decarbonise our economy; the great lie that we have any chance of keeping global warming to 1.5 or two or even three degrees if we keep up this passive, incremental and sober approach to climate change.

The time of baffling expedience and half measures is over; we are in the time of consequences. While we argue about whether we can afford to buy tiny reductions in our emissions in Australia, we are busy exporting hundreds of millions of tonnes of coal and completely blowing our carbon budget out of the water.”

The Climate Change Performance Index
In this year’s index, Sweden is leading the list, while Saudi Arabia, Islamic Republic of Iran, Republic of Korea, Australia and the United States form the bottom five of this classification.

A shameful, global ‘booo’ to Australians

For the past 13 years, the Climate Change Performance Index has been keeping track of countries’ efforts in combating climate change, monitoring the development of all greenhouse gas emissions of 56 countries and the EU.

Climate Change Performance Index is a review charts the efforts that have been made to avoid dangerous climate change, and also evaluates the various countries’ current efforts regarding the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement from 2015, where all countries of the world – apart from the United States, which later on opted out – adopted the goal to limit global warming to “well below” 2°C and promised to pursue efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.

 #STORYCHANGE: 

New hollywood-movie about eco-terrorism and religion

“Courage is the solution to despair.”
~ First Reformed, official featurette by A24

In this short featurette, Ethan Hawke and Paul Schrader talk about the film, which has been desribed as “an outrageous update of ‘Taxi Driver’ for a world of liveleak videos and climate change.” The film discusses “ecological terrorism” and collapse:

“Ecological collapse [is] a prospect that, like damnation and salvation, leaves no room for compromise or hedging: You either believe and behave accordingly, or you perish in the fire of your own ambivalence and hypocrisy.”

“Our failure to commune with nature is a failure to commune with God, and, even worse, each other.”

“If we stay connected, we might yet survive. But alone, in the vacuum of our loneliness and greed, there’s only one possible ending.”

Ethan Hawke

 #STORYCHANGE #RELIGION: 

“Climate change an ecological and moral emergency”

“Civilisation requires energy, but energy use must not destroy civilisation.”
~ Pope Francis, speaking to a group of oil company executives from ExxonMobil, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, and more.

A two day conference – entitled ‘Energy Transition and Care for Our Common Home’ – was held behind closed doors at the in the Vatican gardens in Rome.

Meanwhile, ExxonMobil has announced plans to increase oil production in the US and start more than two dozen projects worldwide

Solar, wind and hydropower represent less than 10 per cent of global energy use at the moment, according to the International Energy Agency. That share is expected to grow to just 15 per cent by 2030.

Under Pope Francis’ leadership, the church has moved to confront the business world on a range of subjects from poverty to tax havens and complex financial securities. He put climate change front and centre back in June 2015, when he devoted his second encyclical to the topic.

“Climate change is an ecological and moral emergency that impacts all other aspects of our shared lives and requires us to work together to protect our common home.”
» The National Catholic Reporter – 24 May 2018:
Religious leaders, scientists of Massachusetts together declare climate change is an emergency
“More than 500 sign appeal to press the state to act.”

While it is good to see climate scientists and faith leaders in the US and Italy speaking out, now three years after the Pope published his 180-page encyclical letter about climate change, it is striking how little climate action and climate leadership initiatives we see among the Catholic leaders in Australia, in Victoria and in our local Geelong community.

“All of us have a responsibility. All of us. Some small, some big. A moral responsibility, to accept opinions, or make decisions. I think it is not something to joke about.”

“As we know, everyone is affected by the climate crisis. Yet the effects of climate change are not evenly distributed. It is the poor who suffer most from the ravages of global warming.”
~ Pope Francis on climate change

Climatic notes of the week that went


Compiled and commented by Mik Aidt

 #CLIMATECHANGE #CLIMATECRIMES: 

“People are struggling”

“During the past 14 months, the Bureau of Meteorology has recorded below-average rainfall across New South Wales, central Queensland, the north-west of Victoria and into South Australia.

NSW has been the hardest hit in 2018. With the exception of the north and south coasts, most of the state has recorded the lowest rainfall in a five-month period since 1900.

Soil moisture levels are below average across much of Australia and in its latest winter outlook, the bureau is forecasting warmer and drier than average conditions across large parts of the country.

Communities in NSW say people are struggling and the rest of the country is not aware of the extent of the troubles in parts of that state.”

» The Guardian – 10 June 2018:
‘Australia doesn’t realise’: worsening drought pushes farmers to the brink
“Liverpool plains farmer Megan Kuhn says cows are being slaughtered because there is no way of feeding them after years of extreme weather.”

“The committee notes the consensus from the evidence that climate change is exacerbating threats and risks to Australia’s national security. These include sea level rise, bushfires, droughts, extreme rainfall events, and higher-intensity cyclones.”
~ Quote from Chapter 6, ‘Conclusions and recommendations’, on page 99 in the Senate inquiry report ‘Implications of climate change for Australia’s national security’

Military: Climate change an existential security risk

Even so, we continue to see Coalition politicians campaigning against the construction of climate-friendly wind turbines. At the moment, member of the Victorian Parliament Richard Riordan is busy doing what he can to stop the development of new wind farms in our neighbouring shires and municipalities:

» 4BC – 10 June 2018:
Wind farms are more than just an eye sore


In Canberra, the Australian Government’s new budget provides a massive forecasted $11.9 billion in fuel tax credits to the mining sector over four years, at the same time as they’ve been given special subsidies for exploration.

It is absurd: Instead of fining the fossil fuel criminals who intend to destroy the Earth’s biosphere, our politicians continue to reward them. With our money.

In Geelong, we have our local newspaper the Geelong Indy running a sour campaign against Geelong Sustainability’s Community Solar Program, where 300 families have signed up and are buying solar and batteries for their homes, in one bulk, totalling more than one megawatt of new solar energy produced in Geelong – a project they really should be recommending for at least taking action on our collective climate emergency.

Geelong Indy front page: ‘Power shock’
» Geelong Indy – 8 June 2018:
‘Free’ solar offer could cost double, warns expert

Australians are up against misinformation. Lies. Fossil fuel powered disinformation.

Not everyone sits quietly and accepts it. David Hood, for instance – a former engineer who is chairman of Long Future Foundation and deputy chair of Beyond Zero Emissions – wrote in an email last week:

“The fossil energy industry is criminally liable for lying, creating and funding massive programs of denial and misinformation, and should be accountable for these crimes. They’ve known that what they produce and sell is causing serious damage to the planet since the 1960s, but have wilfully hidden the truth, and continued to profit from their crimes of ecocide, not to mention their lying. But will anything change?

Only we, the people, can force the necessary change by mobilising en mass and demanding that politicians, industry leaders, faith leaders, academics, and influence leaders accept the science and deliver that change. That change will need to be extensive and across all sectors of society otherwise we are all doomed to extinction. I think this could be called an emergency.

This fact needs to be widely known and understood.”
~ David Hood AM, chairman of Long Future Foundation

Council ‘climate leadership’ without funds to demonstrate this
Locally in Geelong, we have a Council which shows in its new budget that it intends to do literally nothing to change things.

With one side of the mouth it is writing boldly in its plans that it intends to “show leadership to address climate change” as a “strategic priority”.

But in its new budget, and with “the other side of its mouth”, climate change is not even mentioned. The new budget allocates no funding of activities that deal with the issue – no emissions targets for our community, only for Council’s own operations. And no divestment, even though this was looked at positively in the previous Council.

You can read more about this topic here:

» Geelong Sustainability – 7 June 2018:
Council urged to demonstrate effective environmental leadership

Through Council, Geelong’s ratepayers have money invested in dirty, climate-destroying fossil fuels and remain exposed to the likely collapse of the fossil fuel industry in a near future.

32 councils in Australia that have divested, and more keep being added. Melbourne City Council divested from fossil fuels in 2015.

Our neighbouring municipality Surf Coast Shire has a renewable energy target for the whole municipality – it will be powered by 25 per cent renewable energy sources by 2020. That’s at least a start. Elsewhere in Australia, there are municipalities targeting to be powered 100 per cent on renewables already within the next five to seven years.


“A new report has highlighted how member states of the G7 are failing to cut subsidies to the fossil fuel industry. Released ahead of the group’s annual meeting in Canada, it highlights the failure to match words with action on climate change. The major study, led by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), shows the group is still providing an estimated $100 billion in subsidies to the oil, gas and coal sectors. This runs contrary to well-publicised pledges to cut dependence on these carbon-intensive industries and support clean energy.”

» Climate Action – 4 June 2018:
G7 countries still heavily subsidising the fossil fuel industry
“A new report has highlighted how member states of the G7 are failing to cut subsidies to the fossil fuel industry.”





António Guterres

“Groundswell of climate action” not enough

Excerpts of speech by UN Secretary-General António Guterres

“In the past decade, prices for renewables have plummeted and investments are on the rise. Today, a fifth of the world’s electricity is produced by renewable energy. We must build on this. There are plenty of examples to inspire us.

Morocco is building a solar farm the size of Paris that will power over a million homes by 2020.

Last July, China surpassed its 2020 goal of 105 gigawatts of solar photovoltaic capacity. A decade ago it had a mere 100 megawatts. That’s more than a thousand-fold increase in ten years, and represents nearly one-third of global installed capacity.

In France, the government has announced a bill to end the search for and production of hydrocarbons.

In the United States, renewables are set to provide 69 per cent of new capacity by 2021, as dozens of coal plants are retired.

Just last week, Allianz, a leading insurer, announced it would refuse to cover coal-fired power plants and coal mines with immediate effect and rid itself of all coal risks.

The world is seeing a groundswell of climate action.

It is clear that clean energy makes climate sense. But it also makes economic sense. Today it is the cheapest energy. And it will deliver significant health benefits.

Air pollution affects nearly all of us, regardless of borders.

The World Health Organization reports that more than 80 per cent of people living in urban areas are exposed to poor – and dangerous – air quality.

In China, it is estimated that fewer deaths from improved air quality could lead to savings of nearly $340 billion dollars by 2030 – four times the cost of meeting China’s climate goals. This, surely, is the definition of win-win-win.

Investments in clean, green infrastructure need to be scaled up globally. For that, we need leadership from the finance and investment community and by local, regional and national governments who will decide on major infrastructure plans over the coming years. (…)

The International Energy Agency estimates that investment in renewable electricity last year was $242 billion. That is more than half of what was invested in new fossil fuel development. That figure is promising, but remains insufficient. For a full-scale transition to clean energy, we must see billions invested by 2020.

I also encourage you to disclose your climate risk, divest from fossil fuels and forge partnerships that will invest in low-emissions resilient infrastructure. We need to do this from the biggest cities to the smallest towns. The opportunities are tremendous. (…)

Despite inspiring climate action in so many places, climate change continues to move faster than we are. As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says: “The more we disrupt our climate, the more we risk severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts.”

But it does not have to be that way. The economics of solar and wind are on our side. Cutting edge technologies, such as electric vehicles, or energy from algae, promise a new era of clean air and climate action. New awareness is growing and new partnerships are being formed. Let us build on this momentum. (…)

I count on you to take ambition to new heights today and pave the way for more leadership and innovative action. Let’s join a race to the top, a race where there are only winners.
Thank you.”

~ António Guterres, UN Secretary-General – at the Austrian World Summit, 15 May 2018

David Suzuki: “Time to get real on climate change”

“We’re in a giant car heading towards a brick wall and everyone’s arguing over where they’re going to sit.”
~ David Suzuki, Canadian environmentalist

Published on YouTube.com on 9 May 2014.

The Canadian science broadcaster and environmental activist David Suzuki was born in 1936.





Ethic of stewardship: “Greenest generation”

“An unusual situation like this calls for the ethic of stewardship. Stewardship is what parents do for their kids: think about the long term, so they can have a better future. It is much easier to get families to do that than whole societies, but that is our challenge. In many ways, our parents rose to such a challenge in World War II — when an entire generation mobilized to preserve our way of life. That is why they were called the Greatest Generation. Our kids will only call us the Greatest Generation if we rise to our challenge and become the Greenest Generation.”
~ Thomas L. Friedman, columnist for The New York Times, April 2007

 #ENVIRONMENT #EXTINCTION: 

“We need a peaceful public uprising”

“Our generation is presiding over an ecological apocalypse and we’ve somehow or other normalised it.”

“We need a peaceful public uprising. We need people to say we’ve had enough. We do that every time there’s a terror attack. We need a similar movement for nature. We need people to stand up and say we want action now.”
~ Chris Packham, UK

“Since Packham first became passionate about birds, in 1970, Britain has lost 90 million wild birds, with turtle doves (down 95% since 1990) hurtling towards extinction. The State of Nature 2016 report described Britain as being “among the most nature-depleted countries in the world”, with scientific data from more than 50 conservation and research organisations revealing that 40% of all species are in moderate or steep decline. Germany was revealed to have lost 76% of all flying insects since 1989. Packham said decades of losses were finally visible.”

 #PLASTICPOLLUTION: 

Plastic particles end up in our lungs

“More than 300 million tons of plastic are produced each year. Half of that plastic becomes trash in less than a year. Out of the plastics produced, only 9% is recycled; the remaining 91% enters the air, land and water as waste. Parts end up in our lungs. And they stay in the lung tissue or enter the blood stream as the body is not able to rid itself of the tiny plastic particles. Babies who crawl on the floor are the most vulnerable, and children more generally are most at risk as their respiratory systems are still under development.”

 #WELLBEING #PODCAST: 

All being well – with Tim Silverwood and David Holmgren

By Kayla Robertson, Australia

“How do we thrive in a changing world? Hear the wisdom and philosophies of healers, innovators, growers and and other well-being leaders. All Being Well is a podcast taking a 360 degree approach to well-being to guide you on your personal wellness journey. This audio resource is a companion for compassionate and curious people, offering tools to cultivate a meaningful life.”

The Power of Conscious Choice with Tim Silverwood
Released 4 June 2018

Did you know that almost three quarters of our planet’s surface is covered by ocean? This has lead Tim Silverwood to believe that we should be calling it Planet Ocean rather than Planet Earth. As an environmentalist, a campaigner, and the co-founder of Take 3. He’s a dynamic voice within the movement away from single use plastics, and a refreshingly optimistic presence within the environmental movement. As a keen surfer, Tim has closely watched the evolution of the ocean and its responsiveness to human life. In 2011 he sailed 5,000 kms across the North Pacific Ocean to study the infamous Great Pacific Garbage Patch and has shared these experiences through his popular TedX talk, appearance in the ABC’s unmissable War on Waste, and as an ‘ocean guardian’ in the documentary Blue.

When reflecting on his connection with the underwater world, Tim says: “The ocean is a place where I can step away from the normal realm of terrestrial existence and dabble in the fringes.”

In this episode you’ll discover simple tools to reduce your single use plastic pollution, and Tim’s advice on the one thing you can start doing today that will change your relationship with nature.


Revolutionary Permaculture with David Holmgren
Released 4 June 2018

In many homes worldwide, David Holmgren is a beloved name. As the co-creator of the global permaculture movement, his work has touched millions of lives, and can be seen etched into the gardens of inner city projects to community co-operatives to large-scale farms.

The term permaculture was created back in the mid-1970s by David and university professor Bill Mollison, and is a combination of the terms ‘permanent’ and ‘agriculture’ to create a symbolic union. Its 12 principles are based around three pillars – care of the earth, care of people and return of surplus – and over the last forty years it has evolved into an organic, adaptive movement to expand alongside modern times.

Behind the movement, David is not only promoting a sustainable lifestyle, but a powerful alternative life away from dependent consumerism. As such, the principles of permaculture transcend the humble garden to see homes flourish through non-monetary economies, communities blossom through connection and to celebrate a life handmade through the imperfect art of creation.
Kayla had the pleasure of interviewing David at his home of Melliodora in Central Victoria, one of the best documented and well known permaculture demonstration sites worldwide.

In this episode you’ll learn David’s tips for the first place to start when greening your home, and the easy ways that you can introduce permaculture into your life.

+ We have FREE resources for all listeners of this show, including resources from David’s latest book – RetroSuburbia – and a Wayapa connection video practice, when you subscribe to All Being Well’s newsletter on our website: www.allbeingwell.com.au.
