It came to me the other night. In Australia there are alot of people (indeed the vast majority of voters) fanatically opposed to the carbon tax. The proportion of the population opposed to conservation initiatives could actually grow in numbers rather than shrinking as so many people who identify with being environmentalists are not reproducing!
Not having babies. We have to do the maths. Will there be any greenie voters coming out of high schools, if the ones who are having the big families are not conservation minded. Are we greenies having such small families condemning ourselves to extinction status, unless behaviour change is sped up (en masse) before our numbers go in to decline? Something to think about. Not being a population control expert, I am putting the thought out there.
Very interesting link on the whys and wherefores of behaviour change from a more psychological perspective.
Speaking of time flying, it's already February, and cannot believe it. But then, that is a problem for us greenies, that everything is going too fast. Must be time to take up meditation - oops almost said medication! (That might work for slowing things down, too!)
Here is a link to green jobs/clean energy video competition (length: 3 minutes) but the key element is that it has to be funny.
Also, excited that I will be uploading my book, Green Spin - Selling the Green Message soon, and it's about time, too.
It's ironic that humour which can help us deal with our own mortality, may be the thing that gets us to deal with issues affecting the planet's mortality as well!
