Climate Crisis – virtual presentation and debate Friday 12 Nov, 6pm Paris time
Join Caro Feely, organic farmer, writer and teacher online via zoom.
What is the climate crisis? How urgent is it? What we can do?
Join me, Caro Feely to explore these questions with a focus on agriculture. Sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘event’ in the heading.
I felt like Alice in Wonderland as I listened to the radio. France Info covered the level of CO2 émissions and how it is due to hit a record this year (2021). This is directly opposite to what we need as we face the biggest crisis of our time – something that had leaders from around the world in discussion at COP26 that very day.
The next story covered the 30% rise in prices for matière première agricole – base agricultural products – wheat, milk etc. The man being interviewed said it was due to crop failure as a result of climate change. The interviewer did not make the connection to the previous story about CO2 and how this was directly linked. The crop failure was not a one off bad year, it was the writing on the wall of the climate crisis.
We saw how dramatic floods, wild fires and storms affected both Europe, North America, Russia and China this past year. We have to act now and dramatically. If you think it is impossible take a look at this article by George Monbiot ‘Transformation in months has been done before. If we get the right leadership and sense of global community spirit anything is possible.
Yes, when we look at the reality of the climate crisis and how little humanity has done so far to address it, you could feel extremely depressed. But it is crucial that we are not depressed but rather motivated to sort it out. We cannot rely on the politicians who are having a great time blah blah blah ‘ing as Greta Thunberg pointed out before COP26. We have to all engage.
Over the last month as fermentations flew along I had the privilege to do a Climate Reality Leadership course with Al Gore. It opened my eyes wider than they already were to the existential issue of our time, the climate crisis, but also to the solutions.
Join with me online Friday Nov 12, 2021 06:00 PM Paris / 5pm Dublin & London for a short presentation followed by Q&A.
What is the Climate Crisis? How bad is it? What we can do about it?
I’ll explore some of the reality of climate change, the urgency of taking action, and the reasons why we can and must. We’ll have a Q&A and some break outs to meet and chat with others on the call.
We will achieve this transformation if everyone is informed and motivated to take their individual and collective responsibility. It is up to all of us. It is totally acceptable to bring a glass of wine along. 😉
Please email email@example.com to sign up for the event. You’ll be sent a zoom link for access a few hours before the event. The event is free but reservation is essential.
