It is a very difficult thing to call out and confront organisations that we have all been previously involved in over the years but in such challenging times we are obliged to speak truth to power.
Understating the severity of the 6th great extinction is criminal in so much as our opportunity to prepare for the worst that is baring down on us is lost while we procrastinate and promote a form of “Sustainability”, that is patently unsustainable.
I have worked over the years with 350, Oxfam NZ and Greenpeace but now I can’t support them in the same way as they downplay the severity of our crisis. That is not a criticism of their supporters and many of the staff, it is a criticism of the structure and directors. Incidentally I have a solar powered home fueled by long wave, solar radiation,lithium, carbon and a tonne of lead batteries that have been plundered from the living environment. Mea Culpa.
I am honoured to have been invited to be a guest on Nature Bats Last on the 19th of April. Following Cory Morningstar, “The system is a racket” will be a tough act to follow. I would like to discuss my experience of the collapse of the Great Barrier Reef and others and the effects it will have on the biosphere.
I find it interesting that Mike Sliwa and Guy McPherson always manages to inject some humour into such a dire subject, Bravo!
Guy and I will be touring NZ in October and November, details to follow shortly. Another great show from my comrades on NBL, I’m honoured to call them my friends
