Did you hear the news that an iceberg the size of London calved off Antarctica? Breaking off from the Brunt Ice Shelf in Western Antarctica last Sunday, it’s been cracking for years and its day finally arrived. However, it’s important to know this was expected and has not been linked to climate change, but a scientist at Halley research station said: “these are early days and we’re in a stage of heightened vigilance,” ref glaciologist Prof Dominic Hodgson.
Climate news is all around too.
North Korea has issued an extreme cold weather alert.
Algeria is experiencing rare snowfall. Yes, Algeria.
And in Afghanistan, 157 Afghans have now been confirmed to have frozen to death in the “coldest winter on record.” Afghanistan is facing lows of -34C, as well as disruptions to the power grid and food supply. A country already in crisis is now experiencing even more devastation.
Japan is busting climate records everywhere; the US has another big snowstorm coming through town, and today, all of my Auckland based friends were posting Marked Safe on Facebook due to floods, so I went and checked it out. A crazy amount of rain fell. It received 75% of its usual summer rainfall in just 15 hours.
Time is ticking away and nowhere near enough action is being taken. We should be screaming from the rooftops my friends, absolutely screaming. Let’s go.
Friend’s content and mine
Is it time to take a pause?I encourage you to listen to this podcast with Kevin Cottam, the Global Nomad, where we discussed why it is so important to stop, pause, reflect, think and then act. A privilege to know you Kevin.
A small social media/climate tip – let’s start rejecting ads of products not sustainable with a healthy planet.
And here’s the content I’ve been reading or watching this last week. Scan the headlines, read the ones that jump out at you, read or watch them all. Knowledge is power, and global knowledge is even more powerful.

But it’s more than a book; it’s an invitation to join an inclusive community that wants to better understand humanities challenges – both global and personal – in order to take courageous action and create a better world for everyone. If Covid19 has given us the time and space to reflect, Uncommon Courage gives us the nudge we need to create lasting change.
