Climate Change

Cool the Globe Online Petition

Good on Australia's Sunrise program (Seven Network). They have launched an online petition to stop our government from phasing out solar electricity rebates. In these times of climate crisis, the use of solar energy should be encouraged not reduced. I believe that humanity united, with the help of the emerging conscious media, will help save the world from the nutters currently running it!

An Inconvenient Truth

If you haven't already seen it, please take a couple of hours to watch Al Gore's film An Inconvenient Truth. Bottom line is, if we don't do something about our climate crisis now the prediction for the Earth is beyond gloomy. It is all over red rover for the big blue planet we have come to know and love. Done. Finished. The positive news is that we can do something to change the ending and hopefully live happily ever after, but we have to act now. Embrassingly Australia is only 1 of 2 industrialised nations not to be adhering to the Kyoto Protocol, created to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Apparently Bush and Howard fear the effect this would have on our economy, but A) there are plenty of environmentally healthy alternative ways to create wealth and B) What use is a healthy economy if there is no Earth left? At this point I don't think we can move to another planet - word out in the Universe is that we are REALLY bad tenants!!

What can you do?

  1. was just researching some stuff about climate change and found this great site that raises money for conservation groups (I'm a total greenie!!!) and greenhouse projects. They sell sweat-shop free clothing from American Apparel and donate 30% of the profits. This is exactly the kind of company that we should all be supporting these days. I thought others like me might want to know about it - check out They've even got hugh jackman helping them out!
