In 2020, I decided to gather all of the environment and climate crisis information I’ve been reading and watching into one blog, which I updated every week. Here is the full year for 2020. And this is the new blog for 2021, which I will also update weekly.
If you want to keep up to date, you can check my weekend reads, or favorite this blog and come back often, so you can stay up to date on the major news about our global environment. Obviously I don’t read or watch everything being published, but I review as much as I can.
I know many people are not ready to face the crisis, and of course, we have even more denying there’s an issue. I understand why this is happening, because the institutions that matter – government, business and media – are great at keeping us confused.
All I ask is, take some time every week to read something on the issue, but please, never rely on one source for information. You can remain loyal to your existing media source, but we all need to stretch outside to get other views. Wouldn’t we prefer the truth? Well we need to do the work to find it.
Read through some or all, or just scan the headlines – it tells a story in itself. Also please share any information or research you find compelling with me. Happy to be tagged in important information and I’m always happy to pass the message on.
I have a resources section at the bottom, so if there are any you value, please pass it to me and I’ll add it there.
The content is in date order rather than packaging it up into sections. I figure the latest is important, and for those who want to drill down further, you can. Lots of alarming information. It is time to act!!
