I intend to continue to fight for aggressive climate strategy in politics and hold corporations to account on their contributions to the climate emergency.
My climate story is (so far) thankfully not one of immediate environmental impact, physical injury, or material crisis –
but rather one of solidarity, empathy and passion.
I have watched on (and lent a hand where possible) as neighbouring communities, states, and countries have fought anthropogenic environmental degradation and natural disasters to merely survive. The fallout of these catastrophes will be felt by all future inhabitants of the planet as their livelihoods and safety are now forever threatened.
I intend to continue to fight for aggressive climate strategy in politics and hold corporations to account on their contributions to the climate emergency. I also intend to listen and abide by First Nations voices and advice on these issues and I try my best as an ally to understand the importance of protecting Country due to its meaning, importance and value, identity and tradition that it possesses and protects.
Silence on climate issues is no longer an option, even for people physically unburdened (so far) by the climate crisis. This is the biggest crisis of our time as it endangers our very existence as an entire people, and brings to the fore many interconnected issues such as the refugee crisis, the right to housing, animal rights, hyper-capitalism/wealth inequality and gender equality.
There is a piece of this puzzle that every individual should be able to get behind and believe in, to play their part in protecting the future of the planet, and therefore, humanity.
