After studying the science recently, we now understand why the UN Secretary General, (Antonio Guterres) and the leading Climate Scientists are encouraging the school children to strike.
It seems Climate Change is in fact a Crisis AND if we don't come up with real solutions soon, we could all be in much bigger trouble than they are letting on.
In the recent Australian election the policies of all 3 Australian parties: The Greens, Labor and Liberals are not going to solve it. Australia has such a small population, what we do here won't affect the Global Issue. It's important as one of the highest per capita carbon emission economies in the world that we set an example, but we need to do more and fix the real issues.
As a 'Clever Country',(with our New Zealand, UK, European allies and hopefully in time, our Chinese and American allies), we can, with the support of the new Government, get a game plan that will work. We already have a draft Blueprint framework.
The recent launch of the movie 2040 outlines the vision of the better world we can create that does solve the climate crisis.
We call it 'Strike The Alarm'
because that seems to be the best first step to answers.
Get people like you to Go on a 5 minute Mini-Strike and take a selfie holding a sign, get it on the socials and tell the Politicians they need to get to work and put in the processes to find better solutions and work with other governments....FAST.
Greta Thunberg, the Swedish school girl who started the school strike for climate movement says 'It's as if our house is on fire and no-one's doing anything.'
That's why we need to 'Strike The Alarm' so the politicians can grab the fire extinguishers.
The good news is we can fix it.
If we take smart action now, it's inexpensive.
We just use a fire extinguisher. If we wait, it gets serious, very expensive to fix and possibly too late.
That's why there are alarmists calling it the 'Sixth Mass Extinction'. (YEP, there have been 5 in the past when over 75% of species became extinct. Very recently the UN announced 1 million species are now at risk of extinction. YEP, have a read www.UNSpeciesExtinction.com
Drawdown.org in the USA have had a team including 150 of the world's best research scientists working the past four years to see whether Global Warming can be reversed.
They recently announced Global Warming can be reversed and have listed the Top 100 solutions. Of course with Climate Change denial in the USA, they have little chance of getting action.
