Maybe if my generation had had more insight at their age, the world would be in far better shape. It's unbelievable that political *leaders* *still* have heads in sand, alongside big industry interests. Apologies to you marvellous yunguns.. & all strength to you for what you're aiming to fix.

Last night's sunset on the Derwent river towards New Norfolk. The mountain to the right is Mount Dromedary where our farm is located... We're both feeling very grateful to have found such a beautiful place to live, but we're also very aware of that pink fire hue and that there are plenty of people still fighting fires in their backyards after weeks of emergency warnings. We've been lucky this time but it's only going to become more & more common as Tasmania's climate changes. This is the driest hottest January Tasmania has ever seen, with fires burning in vegetation that has never seen fire before. Being both so young (20 & 21) it's frightening to think what we will be dealing with on our farm in 20, 40, 50 years time, be that fires, floods, extreme droughts, rising sea levels, peak oil, animal extinction & the list goes on. We can all be doing more to reduce our impact, fuck we all should be doing so much more! We're waiting for this 'illusive' solution from the people in 'power' that won't come. There is no quick fix, we need to be vigilant & take responsibility for our own impacts. We need to consume so much less & the things we choose to consume need to be locally made, ethically sourced, seasonal products. We need to reuse & recycle our existing things before creating more waste. We need to realise that as an individual our choices may seem miniscule but where we choose to spend our money shows corporations that we've had enough of mass produced, wasteful, pollution.
It's easy to think that there are bigger battles to fight like mining & poor farming practices but as a consumer if you stop buying products that support these practices then you're already making a change.
