‘We will never forgive you’: youth is not wasted on the young who fight for climate justice
The Conversation
Mon 30 September, 2019
This week’s United Nations climate summit may go down in history - but not for the reasons intended. It was not the tipping point for action on global warming that organisers hoped it would be. It will instead probably be remembered for the powerful address by Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg, who castigated world leaders on behalf of the generation set to bear the brunt of inaction.

Happily, we can beat 'environmental melancholia'
The Sydney Morning Herald
Sat 28 September, 2019
Anthropologist Margaret Mead is generally credited with the quote which expounds that thoughtful and committed citizens can change the world and, more importantly, are the only thing that ever has. And if any current government scorecards are to go by, we cannot sit around waiting for them to miraculously find the will to fix any of our planetary woes. Heck, we’re still hard pressed to even get some of the key politicians to even admit that climate change is happening or that our waste situation is anything more than bothersome.

Farewell to the rivers of life and a dying planet
The Sydney Morning Herald
Sat 28 September, 2019
A world where rivers run dry and fish die in their thousands is a world of strange portent. Yes, we should fear disturbance in the heavens, as wrought by climate change. The walls of the S H Ervin Gallery’s excellent new show, River on the Brink, curated by Gavin Wilson, resonate with Greta Thunberg’s heartbroken “how dare you” speech. “If you choose to betray us, we will never forgive you.” But perhaps emerging shifts in the political landscape also offer hope?

The showy everlasting (or Schoenia filifolia subsp. subulifolia) once grew in the Mid West of WA. Now it is found in just a few spots around the tiny inland town of Mingenew.
