Maybe this is it. If you haven’t yet watched the thought-provoking Our Planet on Netflix with Sir David Attenborough’s urgent message to us all, I highly recommend it.
Personally, seeing Greta Thunberg and her fellow young supporters making such an impact, I feel pretty inspired to do whatever I can, whenever I can to at least try.
And the amazing thing about it is that it has helped bring new purpose to my life, to see and interact with the world around me in a different way.
It wasn’t always like this for me. I was never brought up in a family or world that really cared about these issues as strongly as they do today. But, as Sir David and his team of scientists make clear, there is still time – just.
I keep seeing the phrase “Every disaster movie starts with the government ignoring a scientist” and frighteningly there’s a lot of truth in that statement.
If you do just one thing today to help the planet, become more educated on climate change whether by watching the amazing Our Planet or visiting websites such as WWF and Friends of the Earth – you’ll be glad you did.
