1. Human activity takes an enormous toll on the Earth. In 2016, people had consumed an entire year’s worth of the world’s resources by August! We are clearly all living beyond our means and we need to PROTECT our future.
2. Climate change is REAL and 97% of peer-reviewed climate-science papers conclude that humans are causing it. To avoid mass migrations and dramatic climate events that will affect everyone, we need to follow the scientists rather than the politicians. Denial places society at risk. Real leadership in our time comes from those politicians that are accepting the science and supporting the solutions.
3. People NEED Nature! It might be easy to take a selfish view and bury heads in the sand, but the fact is that we ALL need nature in our life time. This is because we are part of the community of life which provides air, food, health, water and well-being. You would think therefore that we should be looking after nature, but the truth is that the earth is on track to have lost two thirds of its wild animals by 2020, compared to 1970.
Despite the doom and gloom, this is a time of CELEBRATION and GREAT HOPE! Celebration, because the advancements and technologies exist that can enable people to live in harmony with nature. Hope, because, together we can all make and demand the changes that will transform the earth's fortunes and create a bright future.
It is time to celebrate the ENORMOUS POWER & POTENTIAL of the GREEN ECONOMY!
The GREEN ECONOMY is the UNSUNG HERO of economic performance. The facts are buried deep but, as an example, over one third of the UK's economic growth in 2011-12 was likely to have come from green business (Source: CBI 2012). It creates jobs and moves the world towards a bright, sustainable future, whilst other issues such as population control and political will are addressed.
