A Global Network of Animal Health Professionals Concerned About Climate Change and the Environment
Greetings Climate Vets,
Long time no hear from? Fair point... I guess I’ve been on a bit of a “discouraged” run, without even realizing it. Some specific climate change-related projects that I work on, especially Energy Forever, have been making nice progress. But that soothes my short-term panic while in the back of my mind I know that the earth is still getting deeper and deeper in proverbial and literal hot water. True, many small efforts are much better than none at all, but deep down I feel like my little efforts are just that; especially when pitted against the Goliath that is our coalition government in Australia, the Trump demonstration in the US, and the whole fossil fuel industry. Sometimes I just want to beat my head against a wall. BUT that doesn’t make much of a blog post, does it? And I just didn't have an upbeat post in me.
But, I am not alone; and one of the things Climate Vets can do is provide community to help us through times like this. So I guess it’s time to share.
Today, my wonderful co-worker at VOC handed me an article by Lesley Hughes in the Monthly magazine, and it just really encapsulates it beautifully. It’s well worth 10 minutes of your time to read it. Please let me know if this doesn’t work for you: https://www.pressreader.com/australia/the-monthly-australia/20180601/281522226756361
Talk to you soon! ~Angela
