Our climate is changing faster than scientists predicted. In Australia we face a worsening cycle of floods, droughts and bushfires, while in the northern hemiphere there are devastating heatwaves, a 1 in 500 year drought throughout much of Europe, record breaking high and low temperatures in Asia and the Americas, atmospheric rivers or rain bombs, heat domes, monsoon floods, tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes and the socio-ecomonic chaos and hardship that follow these events for all countries but especially for the most vulnerable members of any society.
The collapse of the biosphere by way of diminished habitat and resulting mass extinctions is the biggest threat affecting all life on Earth.
This collapse is due to Ecological Overshoot, a technical term that describes how Homo Colossus (modern industrial/colonial humans) have exhausted the carrying capacity of the earth.
In contrast Australian Aboriginals lived within the carrying capacity of this continent for thousands of years, never exceeding a population of between 3 to 6 million people who carefully regulated their population size through the Totemic Kin System while Stewarding Country to ensure their survival for millenia.
Industrial civilisations' one time access to abundant fossil fuel energy has resulted in a population explosion followed by an inability to deal with our waste that has now exceeded the earth's ability to cope.
It is only a matter of time before our community is directly impacted by extreme weather events in one way or another, and by the economic fall out of such disasters as they continue to unfold around Australia and the world.
This website is a landing space to ORGANISE and PREPARE for the worsening climate crisis. Preparation includes finding emotional support for those who have awakened to the full extent of our predicament and what that means for our lives here and now, as well as into the future.
We pay our deepest and most humble respect to the traditional owners of the land on which we live. The Wurundjeri people cared for this land and lived sustainably upon it for thousands of years until white settlers arrived and began murdering these people, attempting to wipe out the entire population. We can never grasp the full extent of Aborignal knowledge and wisdom with regard to their stewardship of this land and we say an eternal and heartfelt SORRY for destroying the peace and harmony they once knew, for desecrating their sacred country, water, culture, language, stories - their dreamtime.
