Reconsidering Christmas, climate action and time

The Sustainable Hour no 247  Reconsidering Christmas, climate action and time

An hour about hemp, meat and climate with sustainable time management tips – how we support the local economy and become more sustainable at a personal level.

Guest in The Sustainable Hour on 19 December 2018 is Les Watson from Get More Time, known as the Time Lord. He covers some of the small changes you can make to get more time.

Chris Balazs from Sage Farm in Bannockburn talks on past achievements and future plans. It is very important during the festive season to support your local economy.

S = Sustainable
A = Agriculture
G = Grass-fed
E = Enterprise

Colin Mockett, our world reporter, found some good news from the ALP party conference. He also covers the washup of the global UN climate summit in Poland, where Swedish student Greta Thunberg gave an excellent speech that shocked the establishment. 15-year-old Greta started out as a lone school striker and has quickly become an advocate for climate justice at a global level.

Lene Foghsgaard reports on the discussions and new developments about hemp – from Australia’s largest Hemp Health and Innovation Expo which took place on 8-9 December 2018 in Melbourne.

“You only talk about moving forward with the same bad ideas that got us into this mess. You are not mature enough to tell it like it is.”
~ Greta Thunberg, speaking at the United Nations climate summit in Poland



Keep safe over the Xmas and New Year, enjoy responsibly. We will be back on 9 January 2019.

Acknowledgement

We at The Sustainable Hour would like to pay our respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which we are broadcasting, the Wathaurong People, and pay our respect to their elders, past, present and future.

The traditional owners lived in harmony with the environment and with the climate for hundreds of generations. It is not clear – yet – that as European settlers we have demonstrated that we can live in harmony for hundreds of generations, but it is clear that we can learn from the indigenous, traditional owners of this land.

When we talk about the future, it means extending our respect to those children not yet born, the generations of the future – remembering the old saying that…

The decisions currently being made around Australia to ignore climate change are being made by those who won’t be around by the time the worst effects hit home. How utterly disgusting, disrespectful and unfair is that?
