Touching Eternity: Thich Nhat Hanh on Ecological Collapse | 2012 03 18 - YouTube


Recently I have felt overwhelmed with the dreadful news - particularly with a picture of Bolsanaro laughing red faced at a Comedy Club while the Amazon burned ... and last night Trump skipped the summit session aimed at finding solutions to global heating through tree planting and shifting from fossil fuels ...... 'I feel the US has tremendous wealth .... I'm not going to loose all that wealth on dreams, on windmill - which frankly aren't working too well, he said. "I think I know more about the environment than most'.....


I was sent this by my daughter in law, Amy Wolff..... and I heartily recommend it to you all....

  • Have a look at this -if possible before the hustings!
  • Hi All, Some of you may have noticed a recent refresh of the website design which hopefully makes things a little clearer and easier to read. We have also recently added a new "Further Reading" page. This contains many links to key reports and articles on Climate Change and Biodiversity loss. This is a great place to start if you want to learn more on these subjects. You can access the new page straight off the menu above - its under the "Find Out More" heading or just click here
  • Simon Hoare, North Dorset's Conservative MP until the dissolution of Parliament, replied to my request for his views on the climate emergency by saying: 'As I don’t know what the questions will be [at the 21 November hustings] I’m obviously not sure what my answers will be.' But he said he was prepared to give the following what he called 'a top line flavour' of his views: 'My main thrust will be: energy efficient building regulations, use of economic instruments to nudge behaviours, positioning 2050 as an end date not a target, and finally supporting initiatives to make our sophisticated lives more sustainable/less impactful.' So that's a full house: all four North Dorset Parliamentary candidates' views on the climate emergency are now on this Forum. Pin 'em down on 21 November!
