As we move into 2020 with hopes of every goodness, we are mindful of the need to protect our planet. “Our Hose is on Fire.” And, Australia is proof that we must act and be accountable as its custodians.
It is heartbreaking to watch the flames and the fear. There are also moments of hope as Koala, Kangaroo and People come together to brave the flames. At the same time, our attention must face the problem to create sustainable solutions.
The aboriginal people of Australia suggested recently that they return to the pre-European settlement practice of fire burning for land management. Click Firesticks Alliance, to learn more about indigenous burning practices as a potential solution to bushfires. The problem extends beyond land management.
We have to take responsibility for the climate crisis. It isn’t too late to start adopting a sustainable lifestyle. It isn’t too late to make changes. In 2020, our platform includes promoting a more sustainable living. To that end, our work with the Citizens Climate Lobby continues as well as our Arts advocacy for “No Yawning in Public™”. We hope to inspire others to protect our home.
To the nature, people and animals of Australia, you are in our heart and we join your prayers for relief. For those interested in helping with the Australian climate crisis and their bushfire devastation, here are some opportunities: Australian Red Cross Salvation Army Australia, Go Fund Me , FoodBank Australia , St. Vincent de Paul, Givit, Firefighter Families, Support Firefighting Brigade, WIRES to Help Wildlife, World Wildlife Fund Australia, and RSPCA NSW Rescue and Treatment.
