Environment

Introduction

Why should you integrate environmental principles to your life?

The trial of the car

In the way we have come to use the automobile, I think we have lost many things - clean air, health, nature, green spaces, and a little bit of our soul. This is my call for us to banish mass private ownership of automobiles from our cities.

Changing how we think and live

We need a change in our culture to enable us to live in an environmentally attuned way, here are my ideas on how we need to change

Crunching the climate numbers

The animals in the human food system are one of the major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. A lot of different studies have come up with different figures as to what percentage of emissions are attributable to livestock; here I discuss them in the context of the world and Australia specifically.

Australia's Environment

In only a short time, Australia has been radically changed by European settlement. This is an introduction into the main problems we face.
The big corporations, our clients, are scared shitless of the environmental movement.....They sense that there's a majority out there and that the emotions are all on the other side-if they can be heard. They think the politicians are going to yield up to the emotions. I think the corporations are wrong about that. I think the companies will have to give in only at insignificant levels. Because the companies are too strong, they're the establishment. The environmentalists are going to have to be like the mob in the square in Romania before they prevail
