I don’t suppose that Senator Malcolm Roberts watched ‘The Facts’ on ABC on Sunday night. After all, Malcolm does not have a very high opinion of one of the world’s greatest experts on the environment and all the flora and fauna that is in it.
Probably few of our Federal government Ministers troubled to watch it, either. After all, most of them have a firm belief in an almighty god and a second coming, having a high expectation of being well looked after until being gathered up to heaven.
However, a pretty large proportion of the population does not share their beliefs nor the Senator’s confidence in his ability to certify that Climate Change, Global Warming and all that stuff which Greta Thunberg waffles on about can be summarily dismissed.
I am one of a growing number of people who would have watched ‘The Facts’ and found it confirmed what they have been saying and believing for far too long.
Our problem is that we can take action on a small scale in the local area, but we do not have the power to force people to do all the things necessary to begin the required action on the necessary scale.
Only governments can establish a state of emergency in which they can mandate reduction in waste, proper recycling procedures, accelerated use of renewable energy, drastic reduction in use of fossil fuels for transport – the list is not endless but it is long and we are running out of time to implement effective action.
Other countries in the world are already taking massive steps, while we fail to realise that coal is fast becoming a stranded asset!
Perhaps our problem is that we live on an island and fail to realise that what happens in another country affects ALL countries, and our contribution to emissions is helping to kill people elsewhere.
Surely there enough people of sound mind in Australia to persuade politicians at all levels to open their eyes before it is too late?
Together we can succeed!
