As the world digests the recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, I refuse to give up hope. Now is no time to throw in the towel, as I firmly believe that when it comes to the planet, no matter how bad things get, our humanity will never lose its ability to make them a little less bad, or indeed to make them better.
All said and done, although, at this moment in time, we, the older generation, have collectively failed to protect, nurture and nourish our Mother Nature, nonetheless, this isn’t a death sentence. It’s a call to action.
