Is fighting climate change a losing battle?

Climate change is and will impact us all. As alluded to, there are many countries who unfortunately stand to make very substantial financial gains from this.

What is likely to be the most successful way of fighting this battle? Who is likely to make the biggest impact - our fellow citizens or our Governments?

  • Oct 2 2012: We need to take a holistic approach to address climate change at a systems level. In my view we need to engage everyone and all systems. From the child in the Nursery school to educational, religious, economic.....political, technological systems. So there is no either/or everyone needs to take part.

    Perceptions: We needs to address people perceptions about climate change and the potential of their small actions. Values: We need to connect people to core values /religious values.
    Practices: We need to share good practices, celebrate good practices and condemn bad practices.
    Social Media: We need to exploit the potential of social media "Mobile technology" has great potentials.
