Thank you Greta Thunberg! International world champion taking platinum, gold, silver and titanium in the eco-environmental Olympics with genuine commitment and heartfelt passion.
As for the current US president, (obviously an AH) who seems to suffer from being A DH, everybody gets it in the end.
As for our current mayor, perhaps he saw the benefits of appearing ‘green’ in Byron Shire. Some have invested interest in ‘green-ness’, some have actual appreciation!
Not all of us feel empowered to do the ‘great’ things like the Greta Thunbergs of the world. We have our say and try to place our number where it counts, however, at the very least, simply plant something, be it a flower, shrub, tree, garden variety anything that breathes in CO2 and breathes out oxygen. It may help to restore a bit of natural balance.
Drought stricken farmers might be better off producing species more suited to their naturally dry conditions – hardier crops and animals like kangaroo and emu for instance in lieu of cattle etc.
