Paris Climate Talks

After twenty one years of trying, it seems the world “leaders” are still in a quandary over what to do about climate change. As talks proceed until December 11th in Paris, perhaps it is time to give a new round of leaders the opportunity to sit at the table and put real solutions before the world. Take time to read and understand indigenous people’s perspective on climate change. Take time to connect the dots between Syrian and Iraqi people seeking asylum and people being driven from their traditional lands by force or ecological upheaval. Read and understand and then help others understand. No more fossil fuel. Love your Mother.

“I think there is a huge change taking place in people’s minds. My own reading is, governments will be left behind. People will walk ahead of them both in implementing solutions and in working out ways to make a transition. And the governments will have to follow.”

-Vandana Shiva, www.navdanya.org in an interview Dec 3, 2015, on As It Happens, CBC radio

  1. Fantastic links! Thank you We, the human race, need to embrace our commonalities and realize the strength in working together. “Never have the nations of the world had so much to lose. Together we shall save our planet or together we shall we shall perish in its flames.” (JFK 9-25-1961 Un General Assembly)
