From Paris to the Pilliga

At 3.15am on Tuesday 9 February we scrambled out of bed in time to meet other ‘climate angels’ from the Pilliga Push camp on the Newell Highway 6kms northwards. From there it was about a 45-minute drive to Santos’ Narrabri Gas Project that is constructing 850 coal...

2016: Organised and Armed

2016: Organised and Armed

Of COP21, James Hansen, NASA’s former chief climatologist, said: “It’s a fraud really, a fake. It’s just bullshit for them to say: ‘We’ll have a 2C warming target and then try to do a little better every five years.’ It’s just worthless words. There is no action, just...

Only One Earth

Nov 12, 2017

Given the converging crisis we face—as evidenced by extreme weather conditions everywhere and horrifying rates of species loss—all polluting industries must now take full responsibility for halting their greenhouse gas emissions and for sustainably drawing their fair share of legacy emissions down from the atmosphere.

TruthMatters-Fire-5

For too long, communities have been held hostage by destructive industries obsessed with maximising profits. As fearless, dedicated investigative journalists have revealed, in many cases obscene profits made from exploiting people and poisoning the Earth are now being obsessively squirrelled away and hoarded in tax havens.

TruthMatters-Earth-1

Because laws necessary to end this systemic thievery and abuse threaten powerful people’s profits, we are now witnessing increasingly craven attacks on basic democratic principles. The source of so much international ‘dark money’ is now well understood; it’s clear that the only ‘conspiracy‘ is the conspiracy that there has been no conspiracy.

TruthMatters-Storms-3

With advanced, environmentally sustainable technologies funded through fair and transparent processes, it’s possible to deliver safe and secure zero pollution renewable energy, fresh water and food systems to all communities on Earth right now. Urgent priority must go to those most at risk from climate change and/or the resource wars that are driving it. Not only will this help mitigate the worst impacts of climate change, untold numbers of new jobs and investment will be generated in fairer and more sustainable local economies.

Please share it to help urge UN delegates and all policy makers from henceforth to fast track the sustainability projects that will support rather than destroy life, as detailed in our Safe Climate Plan.
