Tremors from the Australian youthquake

Guests in the The Sustainable Hour’s climatesafety-bunker on 22 April 2019 are 17-year-old school striker Oscar Pearce, student and school captain at Albert Park College, and our treasured ‘people-reporter’ Lene Foghsgaard who stops by the headquarters to greet our listeners with a proper ‘See you!’ before she heads off to Denmark. She promises to continue her Sustainable People reporting from over there, so we are not going to commence a long thank you speech right here… but we have so many interesting interviews and reports to thank her for.

To get a bit of fresh air after the federal election, we head off to the zoo to visit Tony Caon, who is Sustainability Manager at Werribee Open Range Zoo at Zoos Victoria.

Colin Mocket talks about the federal election result, and a new report about global sea levels rising more than two metres by the end of this century, and he’s also attended a seminar about what the post-carbon economy could like if only Australia started embracing renewable energy, and what the really dirty coal power in the now re-elected Australian government looks like according to Greenpeace and the investigative journalist Michael West .

John Dassieu is an Aussie, who lives in the United States, a constituent of the Division of Chisholm. “We would like to ask for your help in spreading the #VoteClimate message in the face of the current climate emergency. Prominent artist and climate activist John Dassieu sings ‘Try The Greens’ to spread the #VoteClimate message,” Boylan Studios wrote to The Sustainable Hour from New York. So, thank you and of course we can do that. Here’s the song on Youtube


“People are committed now. The youth are rising.”
~ Oscar Pearce, Australian student

What’s a ‘Die-In’? Extinction Rebellion Australia writes: “It is a creative, easy and peaceful way to show your concern for the climate emergency. Volunteers gather in a public space and lie down in silence for 10 minutes to symbolise habitat loss, extinction and the risk to human life caused by the climate emergency. Email diein@protonmail.com and full details will be sent to you.”

In Melbourne, 13-year-old Nina Pasqualini said she was joining the strike because she was worried about “weather disasters”. “Every time we have huge a bushfire here another animal might go extinct,” she told Reuters news agency.

“A climate criminal Australia has remorselessly increased greenhouse gas pollution under the Coalition government, and is among world leaders in per capita greenhouse gas pollution, fossil fuel exploitation, ecosystem destruction and climate change inaction.”
~ Dr Gideon Polya, Countercurrents – Melbourne, Australia – in a newsletter on 29 May 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?
