What can I do to act on climate & social change? First job is knowledge (2023 edition)

Welcome to year four of everything I’m reading, watching and listening to in regard to the multiple planetary crisis’s we face, as well as articles on important social issues, because how societies function is fundamental if we want to have a stable environment for human flourishing.

All information is presented without opinion, even the stuff I completely disagree with, because we MUST be open to looking at all angles if we want to understand these vastly complex issues.

As always, this is a labour of love, but it aligns with an important message I share all the time – it is time to pay attention to the information that matters, and what is going on in our world matters.

The shiny stuff (political scandals, celebrity nonsense, and more) in the long run, does not matter. We must turn away from the distractions, but it’s hard when those who “design” the distractions are very VERY good at it.

The challenge with facing up to the multiple crisis’ is it’s impossible not to sink into eco-anxiety or despair. Please do check out my blog Multiple resources for eco-anxiety from institutions to books to videos and pass it on to anyone you know who is suffering. I will continue to update it as I find more information.

This blog is updated every week (or so) with the information I am reading, watching and listening to. 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, of course, but this is what I do ingest and its comprehensive.

If you’re interested in older news (and six months is old when it comes to the climate, because it’s all escalating so quickly now), here is the full year for 2022, the full year for 2021, and the full year for 2020. If you want to keep up to date on the broader news, you can check my Weekend Reads, which I publish every Saturday.

Join the fight, we need you! It’s time for #OneBillion people imperfectly changing and radically reducing our impact on earth.

  3. What can l do?
    I spend a lot of time working out what is the most effective way to spend my limited time here on earth, to tackle climate change. I keep learning new and more effective ways to take action.
    Here is my slant on our predicament,
    1. Facts. There is really only one fact we need to know.
    According to Alan Finkel, former chief scientist for the Australian government,
    since the Earth Summit in Rio de Janiero in 1992, where the leaders of the world pledged, hand-on-heart, to drastically reduce the use of Fossil Fuels, we have burnt more than all the rest of history put together!
    In 1990 fossil fuels were 87% of global energy use. By 2022 that had dropped to 83%.
    A mere 4% in 30 years, despite an enormous increase in renewables.
    That’s because world GDP has increased a massive 4 fold since 1990.
    Up from $25trillion to $100trillion.
    By 2030 our GDP is expected to double again!
    So all the gains we make in renewables are wiped out by the gains in GDP.
    We are chasing our tails!
    If we double our efforts to make renewables, ever dollar we spend doing that would make more CO2 emissions. All that CO2 pumped into the sky would take us over the tipping points that we are already on the verge of reaching.
    So paradoxically, we could find ourselves achieving Zero Net Emissions,
    but living in a world or run-away global heating. Ironic isn’t it?
    2. Almost every government on earth is desperately trying to increase their GDP.
    So we have an enormous job on our hands convincing 7 billion peeps that we actually have to reduce our GDP to have any chance of surviving catastrophe.
    3. So how on earth do we do that?
    We engage in social media in a thorough and methodical manner, just like our adversaries do. This is not a game. This is war!
    Our adversaries have lots of money which they use to employ bot farms.
    The bot farms convince naive folks to go into bat for the bad guys.
    The rest of us don’t have money to splash around, but we do have the numbers.
    If only we could convince those numbers to engage with the enemy.
    Alas, they are all too busy doing ‘more important things’ than fighting climate catastrophe.
    Another obstacle is that the left in general don’t particularly like social media. We are far too sensitive for the rough and tumble, and we don’t like the way those billionaires control everything. So we disengage, leaving the battlefield open for ‘the bad guys’, who actually love the rough and tumble.

    1. You absolutely nailed the challenge Ben! We are the hope we’re looking for, we just need to stop being so bloody apathetic about everything!!!! I’m in the fight and happy you are too xxx
