We Are Bred For Comfort

Modern generations of humans have been bred for comfort, and convenience, including myself. I love hot water running out of my tap, plumbing (working toilets!) inside my own home and, above all else, I think I might actually die if I could not escape the oppressive Florida heat inside of an air-conditioned room. I love […]

All Coral Reefs Are Dying…Soon

I got out the ocean after snorkeling in Cozumel, turned to the boys and said, “Do you know why mummy is so psychotic about climate change? Because in 10 years, if we don’t fix it, this will all be gone.” For over a decade, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has been warning us about […]


Inspired by True Events. Our children don’t always need ‘positivity’ and ‘happiness’ from us. They need us to act. Manatee moans. Tree trembles. Grandma gags in smog. Boy beseeches. Big People yell, “Money! Money!” “But my future?” cries Boy. Big People ignore. Boy travels to Government on a school holiday. “The climate crisis will be […]

The Elephant

…in the Climate Change room; Let’s talk about it. The fact that hundreds of thousands of people, human beings, go to work every day to do what we now call ‘dirty jobs’ that are destroying our planet. They do not (most of them) wake up every day and say ‘hmm, let me see how much […]

Are you a Climate Denier?

Am I? They say it’s an ‘emergency’. All the best climate scientists, 95% of them. The proper scientists say we only have 6-8 more years to change our ways and pull back from the brink. They say this is going to happen probably by 2030, possibly before your next big birthday celebration or your retirement. […]

Raising White Men

I attended a small webinar about a year ago. I cannot even remember what it was about but it was around climate action so I guess it’s all the same thing. We know it’s an emergency but how do we get legislatures to act? The only thing that stayed with me from that call was […]

The Change Equation

I worked for a Change Implementation firm for 17 years. Organizations often know what they need to change or achieve to succeed. They may have tried, either on their own, or with help from consulting firms to get the changes or improvements implemented with limited to no success. Because change is hard. Human beings don’t […]
