We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones
Death means life, embrace all of it
We are living in the midst of a climate crisis, our economic systems are currently incompatible with life on earth. As you may know already, crisis comes from the Greek krisis, “turning point in a disease, that change which indicates recovery or death”. In other words, THERE IS EVERYTHING TO PLAY FOR.
Action is what we need, and you know best what form that action takes. Me? I make wildlife friendly forest gardens, build digital stuff for climate activists and write countless indignant letters. Your skills, pleasures, inclinations, these will all differ, and it’s up to you to find out how best to step up to the climate challenge. The best thing is that, together, we are not alone.
