Another big wake up call
News this week has sadly highlighted why we started the Cycle for Change project in the first place. A group of leading environmental organizations including WWF have today revealed in their Living Planet report that if we continue on our current course of resource depletion , by 2030 we will need at least two planet earths to sate our appetites for the niceties of life.
Double whammy- Climate change and resource depletion
This double whammy of increasing climate change and resource depletion are really the two major challenges that all of us face – credit crunch or not. In fact it’s not hard to imagine that in the future we may well hark back to the good old days of 2008 as a time where at least we could still afford to eat and travel in relative comfort no matter how bad the economic conditions. The rules of survival are obviously changing at pace and if we can’t face up to reality now then the reality in the future may well to hard to face at all. It’s time to get active, not be distracted by temporary problems like our current financial woes and address the greatest threat any of us will ever face.
