In this year, whilst the world is still fearful of Covid, Climate Change and Religious Extremism, where is the chink of light that will gives us any hope for a bright and healthy future?
For many years, decades in fact, we have been warned about the calamity that we all face from climate changes that will create real and dangerous temperature rises. We know the effects because they are occurring already. Extreme weather events are becoming more frequent: more intense bush fires, storms and floods. Insect numbers are reduced in many areas by over 60-70%. Bee numbers in some parts of the world are so low that the normal pollination process is severely affected. This is affecting crop and plant growth and future food supplies.
