My interest in saving the planet means I have made quite a few paintings on issues I care about. This festival on 11 March is very welcome from my point of view, and hopefully people I know can get on board, I may drop letters into their letterboxes as I have a renovated typewriter that means I can write quick messages to share.
Hi David, Is this of any use or interest? https://climatecoalition.org/future-food-security-must-focus-on-supplies/
Christianity has not always seen eye to eye with animist beliefs like those of Native Americans, Australian aboriginal people and rainforest tribes. This is an area where the gap can sensibly be bridged and common ground found.
Signing statements is not enough. Politicians and multinationals know the billions of faith adherents in the world are apathetic and thus no threat to their power when it come to climate crisis. Christians are no different. We have buried the radical Jesus imperative of direct political challenge. We need to unlock that paralysis. This is how to do it: https://www.kevinmayhew.com/products/climate-change-the-challenge-to-the-church-1501666 . It's life or death for our children and grandchildren.
