Precious Planet

Christmas is a time for reflection, so here’s some questions to ponder. Is the precious planet that supports you and your families life worth a little space in your thoughts and deeds this Christmas? Have you thought about what a healthy planet is worth to you and what it would be like if it wasn’t? The science is crystal clear and we are not doing enough.

The above is not said lightly. By any measure you choose to look at, we are witnessing and living through the rape, plunder and destruction of our precious planet and consequently most of its inhabitants. Since 1985 we crossed a threshold where we use more resources and natural eco system services (fresh water, fish etc) than are replenished, leading to a degradation in supply the next year. The equivalent in financial terms would be spending more than you earn. So, if you have some savings you could do this for a while, but as your bank account diminishes you can see there is a reckoning coming and for our precious planet that point is coming quickly. Unless we wake up from the marketing stupor we have been lulled into which promotes, what I consider, relatively worthless items, the future is going to be uncertain, dramatic and ugly for most of us. When I say relatively worthless, I am weighing goods and services which promote health, wellbeing, responsibility, justice and equality vs exploitation, environmental destruction, ignorance, egotism, selfishness, extinctions and pollution.

This year, in March, we have seen the first month where the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere has remained above 400 ppm. Many of us won’t understand the meaning of this figure, yet we may have a very clear idea, passion and detailed knowledge of a favourite soap opera, sports team, celebrity, cellphone or dream vehicle. And we have this because this is where we put our curiosity, energy and our resources. But are these things really worthy of your attention? What are any of these things worth vs a viable future for you and your children? See here for some info on why 400 ppm is important.
