Now it`s Coffee! And then there`s Chocolate!  But, I can`t Live Without Chocolate Or Coffee, Can You? And if You Don`t Act Now, You`ll Hate Yourself Later! Just how could you replace your so enjoyable and satisfying addictions?

Climate change could dramatically impact the quality, price and production of so many of the things we love in our lives. Whether it be coffee or chocolate production and availability at pretty OK prices! Whether it be our sustainable vegetables or fruit!

……………………………..

Whether it be the grains and seeds we need for a balanced diet! Whether it be the fish resources in our seas and lakes! We all need these for our health and nourishment?

……………………………..

What foods are we prepared to live with out? What can we do, as individuals, as families and as communities to ensure there is a plentiful supply for now and into the future? I don`t know about you, but I feel pretty hopeless about what actions I can take now and into the future.

……………………………..

So this blog post is about me sharing some information about living in a sustainable world. I do want to touch your emotions and your thinking and your taste-buds! ... and I do want to try to influence you to be an action taker.

And about Coffee!

Check out this article from CNBC — A Sustainable Energy Report.  They refer to reports, give us information and ask us questions.

……………………………..

Here is a brief extract. (The full article can be accessed below). Extreme weather events and rising temperatures could slash areas where coffee can be grown by as much as 50 percent by 2050, according to Sydney, Australia-based The Climate Institute.  

……………………………..

“Over 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed around the world every day, with nearly half of Australians drinking coffee regularly,” John Connor, CEO of The Climate Institute, said in a statement.

……………………………..

“Yet coffee is just one of a multitude of things increasingly subject to negative climate impacts, and its negative flow-on effects,” Connor added.

Bill Gates Interview

Bill Gates is a strong voice about the need to act now. In this October 13, 2015 interview, Bill Gates shares indisputable facts about the problems we face as members of the world community.

……………………………..

Yes, we have issues to deal with. Bill gates suggests that research and development monies from the richest countries in the world needs to increase.

……………………………..

This is critical as one of the steps to bringing better sustainability energy-wise to our planet.

Let`s make sure that this doesn`t happen!  ‘That We Can`t Live Without Chocolate Or Coffee’.

I want to use an analogy from my time as a teacher and educator in primary schools in South Australia.

I worry a lot about the amount of bullying that happens within the classroom, within schools and within society in general. Whatever the issue, gender, race, religion, culture, skin color, etc etc  — we are all equal and have the right to be safe and secure and have the right to show our unique brilliance in the world. Agree? So why do the bullies continue to have power and what can we do to stop their power! 

……………………………..

The SOLUTION IS pretty simple but it takes courage and action on the spot and to stand up to bullies and not to be a bystander!

……………………………..

Yes we need to stop being bystanders and call out bullying every time we see it!> And it`s the same with Climate Change.

……………………………..

We need to take some sort of action! If everyone on the planet gets activated. If everyone becomes more aware of what options they have, then little by little each of our actions added together will make a difference. Yes, the sum of our actions will be considerable! I`m sure you will agree!

“A more sustainable future can start with you.   So what actions can we take”?

Here are a few ideas.

  1. Conserve our use of energy, electricity, gas and look into solar.
  2. Limit as best is possible the loss of heating and cooling into the atmosphere.
  3. Pollution from vehicle exhaust is a problem, just a little savings here and there will be positive.
  4. And whatever it might take that suits you best.
  5. Promote positive ideas to people you know.

Help the environment and switch to an energy provider which offsets energy use sustainable ways.  (And there are a number of companies that may do this, but ….)

……………………………..

My company of choice is Viridian Energy.  (in USA and Australia -as of October 2016).   Why? — because Viridian offers energy that is 50% offset against renewable energy actions.  This may be a choice for you too.
