Counting On …

Friday 12th November 2021

Who are we counting on to make a success of the COP26 conference? 

The biggest countries or the smallest? The richest or the poorest? Those with most to offer or those who are most vulnerable?

World leaders? Our politicians? Business leaders? Scientists? Investors and financiers? Charities and NGOs? Faith groups? Youth groups?

Ourselves? Ourselves alone or ourselves as communities?

Who is counting on the success of the conference in order to survive? Small islands? Indigenous peoples? The poor? The disadvantaged? Wildlife? Marine life? Plant life? Forests and woodlands? Glaciers and icecaps? Coral reefs? Alpine meadows? We in the developed countries? The comfortably middle class? Our children and grandchildren?

We are all linked as part of a finely balanced ecological network, where it is one for all and all for one. 

Do look back at past posts for ideas and thoughts about how we can be part of the solution, and do keep in touch as the Green Tau continues to address ecological issues.
