Casting Call forGreta

We also have governance by denial.

Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught, will we realize that we cannot eat money.” Attributed Native American saying.

Greta Thunberg – the heroine of our times

The solutions are there

The Biggest Little Farm They brought the soil back to life

Wilding This is a technically dense account of returning the land to nature

The Man Who Planted Trees A novel by Jean Giono

Australia is burning, the oceans are dying, the ice is melting, plastic particles too small to see clog soil, water and now air, earlier this year California was up in smoke as was the Amazon.

What will it take for those who govern to wake up? What do oil and coal execs imagine, that they will be living in just the right places unaffected by the coming catastrophe?

It would be good if there was an outbreak of responsible action amongst those in power, because recycling our plastic packaging at home is probably not going to do it.

And why does some actor that you’ve never heard of post a splenetic piece like this?

Well I bet you a dollar that the honchos who run Hollywood are even now considering who will play Greta Thunberg in the movie. Maybe I could play some 70s/80s/90s/2000s politician who knew but did nothing…

And the movie will gross what it does and the planet will continue to turn and the Sun to rise. But will anyone in power do anything meaningful…?

    Completely agree. I love Greta. Happy Birthday for 6th December. Russell and I are off to Oz (if there is anything left of it on 17th Jan for a few days en route from SE Asia) Hope to say hello to the Arundel family too. Hope you are well.

    I love this. Thank you, Colin! My son is very active on this topic and actually worked with her this year, here in the U.S. He was the International Youth Organizer for Earth Strike, that took place this past September. If you’re curious, here’s a video of one of the speeches he gave down in Miami. No, I’m not too much of a proud mama 😊. His generation brings me hope… they’re not quiet. Let me know what you think 😊. And thanks for the blog, again. Hope the show is going well!!!! Much love! Margery

    Donald Trump on climate change: “You have storms and you have rain and you have beautiful days.” Throw out all the climate deniers! Great post, Colin, and Happy Holidays from Ann and Bob Hagelstein
