NEW YEAR, NEW DECADE, CLIMATE WALK

A very big thank-you and miigwetch to everyone who showed up to bring in the new year and new DECADE OF RECLAIMING THE FUTURE yesterday, and especially to Matt McDonald for his powerful singing, and to Emily Bell for her excellent help in reading Eric Holthaus’: ‘In 2030 we Ended the Climate Emergency. Here’s How’!

FUZZY NEW YEAR PLANNING MEETING

We had a great meeting at the Boston tonight! (And we will try to meet once per month.)

Here is the text of what I have posted on the Climate Action Parry Sound FB page:
Climate Action Parry Sound is making a New Year’s Resolution to make 2020 the beginning of “The Decade of Reclaiming the Future” Let’s all join together on Friday, January 10 and resolve to make this the decade we reach Net 0.
We will meet at 11:15 at the Mall on Joseph Street and walk down Joseph and Church Street to Market Square Park  

CHRISTMAS WITH TANYA (ANN COGNITO)

Judy and I had a chance to visit with Tanya Bucknor at her “Walk to Waken the Nation” camp in front of the parliament buildings in Ottawa on Christmas day. She normally has lots of company, but this was her quiet Christmas feast. Yesterday Tanya, and others from Extinction Rebellion Ottawa, had a little visit from Neo-Nazi types. All is good today. Generated a little extra publicity was the final outcome. The other visitor sharing a repast here is Jean Paul from Extinction Rebellion Montreal. Tonight http://@JustinTrudeau arrives home from his #ExtinctionVacation in Costa Rica and the #ClimateEmergencyCamp continues to wait outside his office for him to finally tell the truth about the accelerating climate and ecological collapse. #SnowAngels

THE ‘DECADE OF RECLAIMING THE FUTURE’ STARTS NOW!

We are taught to think of humans first. When we look at this photo we see a human tragedy unfolding due to a ‘climate emergency’ that threatens ‘the world as we know it’. In this New Year, the first of a decade during which the science tells us we have a last chance to mitigate ecological collapse, let us all remember that the Natural World, which has no lifeboat, is the ULTIMATE VICTIM here. Our generation will regenerate itself, but only to its unending shame IF WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSURING THE MASS EXTINCTION OF SPECIES THAT EVOLVED ON THIS EARTH LONG BEFORE HUMAN CIVILIZATION! What will we tell the grandchildren? Start this 2020s ‘decade of reclaiming the future’ by joining a Climate Action group near you on Friday.
