Climate Change and Food

Climate Change and Food

This is the chance for all of us to be part of like a global healing sort of phenomenon where we can see some of the writing on the wall about what’s going to happen if things don’t change. This is a chance for all of us to sort of just think about how much waste we produce – how much greenhouse gas emissions result from our lifestyles and that there’s a better way. 

Dr Graeme Horton, Doctors for the Environment Australia

Farming families and the communities where they live are really insistent that we get over this climate wars thing that we’ve been living under . . . get bipartisanship and start accepting that change is inevitable – it’s going to happen whether we like it or not, and the only way for us to manage that change is to be part of it, to embrace it and then direct it so that we can actually have a change that we’re part of rather than a bumpy ride . . . know that there is a rosey future out there if we want to embrace it.
