Sapoty Brook, Main Arm

Many of us are deeply concerned, thoroughly informed citizens, unwilling to commit to retrograde projects. Now is the time, the only time remaining, for us to put our shoulders to the common and desperate need of humanity. We must, with full urgency, take control of the gaseous thermostat of our common home.

One year ago my home was under threat of monstrous fires, which we all know will soon enough return, with even greater ferocity.

Most of us are fully aware of the overarching threat of carbon dioxide and subsequent thermal threat of methane release.

Our lives and the lives of our children are in political hands. The political calling to this decade is undoubtedly the highest demand in human history. Politicians must show us their metal and stature. There is no time to waste to secure the Climate Act.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. The Climate Act… yes. How many thousands of times do we have to say
    that. Try turning our politicians around means we’ve got to take them on
    ‘head on’. It should not be like this. Money talks – what’s obvious isn’t in
    their interest [no pun intended].
