Now more than ever we need to consider our natural world & life on earth — The air we breathe, the clean water we drink & food we eat. These are our basic needs. For some reason we as humans are disconnected from nature and don’t seem to understand how this natural system works and how essential it is for life. ✧
Earth, our only home is fragile, the food chain, the insects, the micro-organisms in our soil are at the bottom & humans-beings are on the top. Already an alarming amount of species have vanished and we too are on our way to extinction if we don’t take urgent action. ✧
Unfortunately main stream media and politics have failed at educating the public — The system is broken. The supporters of our new government are based on greed and selfishness by only looking at their own short term gain – Choosing individual wealth over future generations and the future of our planet. Our earth has finite resources and they are quickly running out. The carbon level in our atmosphere is up to 413 ppm, the highest it has ever been. Only when the last tree has died, the last river been poisoned, the last fish been caught will we realise we can’t eat money… – Cree Proverb✧
In all honesty it hurts. It hurts to know that our beautiful natural world is being destroyed due to the greed & monetary gain that is profiting very few. It hurts to know that the main contributor to our co2 emissions is mining coal, and this is what our government wants to build our economy on. It hurts to know that one of the worlds largest natural eco-systems, the Great Barrier Reef now has very little chances of survival with the plans our current government has. It hurts to know that as Australians, we have the privilege of freedom and education with the freedom to vote and we have still ended up with this result.
It hurts... but this will not stop us. We need a new system. We need a massive shift. We need new ideas, new lifestyles, new thought processes. We need new solutions. We need to stay positive. We need to realise we are all part of this problem. Australia, we have the power to do better and I know if we look deep down into ourselves we can. #changeiscoming
