  • Behind the scenes filming in Oxford earlier this month with @climategeorge of Climate Outreach, a charitable company who's purpose is to ensure that climate change and its impacts are understood, accepted and acted upon across the breadth of society.  In the current moment, the science is clearer than it has ever been. The policies are in place and the technologies of a zero carbon future already exist. But action is less forthcoming. What this shows is that climate change isn’t, and simply can’t be, just the concern of a few environmentalists -  Climate Outreach⁠

Chennai’s ongoing water problem:

@pablobartholomew for @everydayclimatechange .
Garbage dumped around natural water bodies that link the backwaters to the sea on the outskirts of Chennai towards Mahabalipuram which now houses the IT corridor. This massive construction of area houses some of the largest high rise office blocks blocking the backwaters that form essential water bodies of Chennai.  This misuse of land has created an unplanned imbalance in the name of development. in 2015 when it rained abnormally, one of the reasons of the flooding in the city was due to over construction and the excess rain water not being able to drain out into the sea.
.
A study by the Anna University has found that Chennai has lost over 33 per cent of its wetlands in the last one decade due to massive construction. During the same period, Chennai lost 24 per cent agricultural land crucial for improving groundwater table. With the city growing and extending its boundaries, large amounts of farming lands have been acquired by greedy builders. The Centre for Climate Change that conducted the study blamed road construction, highways and flyovers, airports and high-rises for depleting water resources in Chennai. . 
Chennai the capital of Tamil Nadu State is the sixth largest city in India. The growth of the city which started in 17th century was developed rapidly and the present area of this Metropolitan city is 170 sq.km with a population of about 9.1 million. The nucleus of the water supply to Chennai city was laid in 1812 and it was gradually expanded over the years.

  • Villagers of Kumik in the Indian Himalaya watch on as the livestock return home after a day of grazing on the high plains. 
Kumik, like many other Himalayan villages, is facing a water crisis.
The glacier that once provided Kumik with water has now fully retreated due to warming temperatures from climate change. 
This has forced the village to consider every option available including relocating the entire village to a new area closer to another source of water. 
The challenges faced by villages like Kumik are but a preview of the larger issues that will arise in the future across Asia in response to once reliable water supplies disappearing. —

  • One of my lasting memories from traveling in rural Uganda with @vitaminangels last year was this late afternoon walking through a small village. Their obvious joy and presence made me think. What does it mean to be poor? You can have all the money in the world, but if our hearts don’t have human connection then we are truly poor. These ladies and young girls may live in mud brick huts, but they are abundant in love and community.

  • Coal mine workers break up large pieces of coal that is loaded up on trucks and taken to power plants and factories across India. Part of my "A Dying Land" series. -- Jharia is a poignant reminder of our societies reliance on fossil fuels, which are responsible for climate change. How far we push the human and environmental cost to meet our energy needs is a question unanswered. For now, the people of Jharia are so reliant on the coal mines to make a living that the benefits far outweigh the cost and risk. After all, there are few alternatives in burning and dying land.

  • My head needs mending and probably so does everyone else’s...⠀
I have been thinking, listening, & reading lots whilst deeply reflecting on “how to live this wonderful Life knowing all will pass, including me. Awareness of the clear and present dangers along with predictions of imminent “societal collapse “ certainly focus the mind. There really is no difference in how to have a good life if it ends today or whenever , we have always lived with uncertainty. I explore this as a personal journey and it is easier for me in so many ways as I get close to entering my 7th  decade on this beautiful planet. ⠀
⠀
As I help myself navigate my daily landscape can I also help others ? Who knows and if it does that is great and its certainly my intention going forward. ⠀
⠀
Most of us live in an old system of power, economy, distribution and organisation that is now breaking down. This is why we all need to evolve , not because humans are destructive, selfish and greedy although we can be all those things. Our very existence is under threat and what will come before that are massive changes to our way of life. We need to be learning, preparing and creating better ways of living together so we, our children and grandchildren can have an easier future than many predict. I will be sharing and exploring many ideas, activities and examples going forward. You are very welcome to join me and share your own routes etc , that you are finding helpful in this time “Betwixt Worlds.

  • There was this giant forest near my house where I often played with deer and their babies, ducks, cats and other animals. I would climb on the trees and play hide and seek with my sister. Now most of it is gone and this isnt the only place that’s like that. There are empty buildings near that area so i have no idea why they are building more.~ 🌞🌻

  • Man-made fire burns recently cleared rainforest 20 kilometers south of the Amazon River, approximately 40 km southeast of Manaus in October 2018.

Recently released satellite imagery data from the Brazilian rainforest conservation NGO Imazon showed a loss of 216,900 hectares of rainforest between August 2018 and April of this year. To give a number like that some context for what it means for global warming and CO2 emissions, a study by Australian National University estimates that each hectare of tropical rainforest stores 250 metric tons of carbon. So since the EPA estimates the average US automobile emits 1.38 metric tons of carbon in a year (or 181.15 cars/hectare of tropical rainforest), that means the Amazon rainforest lost in eight months was the equivalent of the emissions from ***39 million*** American cars for one year.

Since Brazil's new executive leadership has made the exploitation of the Amazon a high priority and believes that climate change is a "Marxist plot," the amount of deforestation is likely to increase, sadly. We can still vote with our wallets, however. Consuming less wood, paper, soy, and especially beef on a global scale will give less economic demand for tropical deforestation.
