People's Climate March - 'There is no Planet B'..




Yesterday (Sunday) 7,000 people in Perth joined in a national rally, 350 community groups joining Aboriginal elders and religious leaders to send a message to the world leaders in Paris for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, the aim being 'to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate from all nations in the world' You may have heard that here in WA there have already been lives lost in the bush fires in Esperance. Quote from the WA president of the United Firefighters Union, "There are no sceptics of climate change when you are behind a hose". Was there a rally in your city/town yesterday/today? Happy Monday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. what are the chances of the nations of world agreeing on anything.. seriously! p.p.s. late night, catch up today!

  2. The vast majority of people want reform... but it's only when the corporations support it, or least stop blocking it, will reforms actually happen. Sorta like gun control in the US.

  3. Sadly, Stuart and Jose are right!!! It would be great if the corporations would support reform instead of blocking it!!

  4. This is wonderful! And yes, no Planet B. How did climate change get to be a political football? Because the people exploiting the earth's resources don't want to give up their disastrous actions which bring such great rewards. And no, the right and powerful still own too many of the world's leaders for there to be a binding agreement among all nations.

  7. There needs to be done a lot before we can accept the fact that the climate is changing. I think we can all see it, and don't need politicians to tell us.

  11. I think you're right, Grace. Finding universal agreement will be most difficult.

  19. Looks like the event drew a huge crowd. That's a good thing. I don't know of any events taking place here. As far as an agreement is concerned I'm afraid I'm a bit cynical on that one.
