Hello out there, how are you doing? I hope life is treating you well and if not that there is always someone to support you.
In the last couple of Saturdays, I introduced you climate activists from all over the world which I learned about from Mary Robinson’s book “Climate Justice – A Man-Made Problem with a Feminist Solution” (the book is known under several slightly different titles). We are nearly at the end of this series with only two more to come after today.
You might have heard the reasoning a lot that we can’t change our societies to be carbon neutral because it will destroy jobs. I always thought that to be a short-sighted reasoning because there won’t be any jobs on a dead planet. After all we can’t eat money and we won’t be consuming anything if our houses are flooded or burned by wildfires.
Someone who is pondering the effects of climate change on the work-force for many years is Sharan Burrow, General Secretary, International Trade Union Confederation and she explains her thoughts in this video by Climate TV. Please visit the link underneath the video if it doesn’t play here on the blog.
Happy Saturday to you all despite everything!!!!!
