People's Climate Picnic

People's Climate Picnic
Today around Australia, tens of thousands of people rallied as part of the worldwide People's Climate March rallies, which will conclude in New York with a march led by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, before the leaders of most countries meet to consider further action on climate change.

We live in a country area, but there was a People's Climate Picnic in a small town nearby. Not surprisingly the group was hardly large by city standards, but enthusiasm is what counts. The group marched to a nearby church where the bell was rung to mark the event, then listened to a talk before returning to the park for a pleasant lunch picnic. Further images in notes.

Addendum: I understand that over one million people marched in this global event. Now let's hope the politicians can take the message and do something constructive about this!

Yeah, we've got to get this rolling. No more endless political flapdoodle, no more polite listening to the deniers of solid science; we've got to rise up in sufficient numbers to march right over the oil producers of the world...

I know you know you are preaching to the Choir here Laurie... but in OK.. and TX.., they dont give a stuff. The ground water being pumped into the ground daily just 50 miles away is causing daily earthquakes (2-3 daily.. and getting worse)... but who cares.. the oilmen and gas men put the money back in their pockets and walk away...

Count me in on the Uprising.. I have been on that Campaign Wagon for 45 years.

Unfortunately our current government seems beholden to the minerals industry, particularly big coal, Laurie. So they take their advice from deniers and do no more than window dressing.

See my note to Laurie, Pam. My work touched on this back in the mid-70s, when the CO2 level was about 330 - it's now at 400ppm and rising exponentially. Not good and something has to be done or ...... well!

Even here the media reporting was 'selective', for want of a better term, Pam. But plenty of coverage of 'important things' like hacked celebrity snaps....

Many thanks, Elene. Sadly, it seems our politicians seem to consider that diversions leading to votes are more important than the future.
