What can I do to act on climate change? First job is knowledge

Welcome to year three, where I am compiling climate crisis information, which covers global heating, the waste crisis, biodiversity loss, the 6th mass extinction, greenwashing, and so much more. This is the knowledge we need to be paying attention to as our world lurches towards 1.5C global warming, the impact of which will be progressively more extreme. Our climate is becoming increasingly more unstable.

The great news is, in 2022, more people seem to have woken up to the urgency we are facing, and there is more talk, more solutions, more determination than ever before, and we can not rest. We have to see dramatic change taking place right now, and within this decade, or the future for our children will be unbearable.

This blog is updated every week with the information I am reading, watching and sharing. I’ll also be adding social issues content this year. It’s a critical part of what we need to fix, as we transform into a new world.

If you need a place for reference material, check back regularly. If you need information to fight arguments, check back regularly. I don’t read or watch everything being released, but this is what I do ingest and it’s pretty comprehensive.

If you’re interested, here is the full year for 2020 and the full year for 2021. And this is the collection for 2022. If you want to keep up to date, you can check my weekend reads, which I publish every Saturday, 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 cover as much as I can.

I know many people are not ready to face the crisis, and of course, we still have so many denying there’s an issue at all. I understand why this is happening, because the institutions that matter – government, business and media – are great at keeping us confused. However, this is not something we can continue to ignore. Look around. The world is changing and we need to act now.

Please, take some time every week to read something on the issue, and 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?

I recommend reading 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 or when I read it 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. When it comes to the climate, recent information is super important, as things are changing fast now, as is the ability of the scientists to track it.

There is no question the time for change – and revolution – is now. Join me. Let’s do it for our kids. They deserve it. With love xxxx

294 The Five Laws Of Stupidity tks Ferenc Nyiro (really interesting perspective)

I had a wonderful opportunity to be interviewed by Dr Sharon Spano, who hosts The Other Side of Potential podcast. We discussed social leadership, including how social media is democratizing information and can be used as a tool to heal society, how to take a stand on social media without suffering negative repercussions, the importance of using inclusive and unifying language on social media, the value of objectivity and not investing emotionally in information and how we all need to walk the world with gentler feet. Here’s the link to the podcast and on Apple.

The chemical pollution planetary boundary is the 5th of nine that scientists say have been crossed. The others are global heating, the destruction of wild habitats, loss of biodiversity and excessive nitrogen and phosphorus pollution.

The nine boundaries, according to this reference, are:

  1. Climate change
  2. Change in biosphere integrity (biodiversity loss and species extinction)
  3. Stratospheric ozone depletion
  4. Ocean acidification
  5. Biogeochemical flows (phosphorus and nitrogen cycles)
  6. Land-system change (for example deforestation)
  7. Freshwater use
  8. Atmospheric aerosol loading (microscopic particles in the atmosphere that affect climate and living organisms)
  9. Introduction of novel entities

Here is another reference.
