Our World: COP26

A glimmer of sunshine… a glimmer of hope

There has been a conference taking place in Scotland called COP26, which is focused on tackling the issue of climate change. My first reaction was to write a piece about the sheer hypocrisy of the politicians and other ‘bigwigs’ attending via private jets and gas-guzzling cars but I have ranted enough verbally in real life about this issue and my blog is meant to be a positive place!

So instead the occasional series of Our World will concentrate on hopeful events that are happening; good news stories; eco-tips that can work in our favour as well as the planet; and charities/people/organisations which are fighting for nature – whether that’s in terms of climate change, the biodiversity crisis, habitat loss, deforestation (which is linked to the previous three), pollution (plastic, air, land, sea…) or anything else that affects our planet adversely. Raising awareness is important but when it comes to taking action, for me, on a personal level, motivation and inspiration works better than gloom and judgement.

There are three phrases or ideas that I think of when I’m considering this massive issue.

But I tried, didn’t I? At least I did that.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Think globally, act locally.

Every little bit helps. (I also quite liked Many a Mickle Makes a Muckle but I’m not entirely sure what a mickle and a muckle are!)

  1. While we nonetheless need to keep doing our very best to correct our collective consumptive (mis)behavior ASAP, humankind is still distracting itself/ourselves from our own burning and heavily polluting spaceship, Earth. … Humankind desperately needs environmentally conscious and active young people, especially those approaching or reaching voting age. In contrast, the dinosaur electorate who have been voting into high office consecutive mass-pollution promoting or complicit/complacent governments for many decades are gradually dying off thus making way for voters who fully support a healthy Earth thus populace.
