No one is immune to the impact of climate change, which is fuelling war, hastening natural disasters, causing the extinction of species and threatens to drag societies back into poverty, the most comprehensive study into the phenomenon has warned. “Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change,” IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri told a press conference at the launch of the report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, in Yokohama, Japan. Michel Jarraud, secretary-general of the World Meteorological Organisation, said the report, the most comprehensive to date, said it showed that “now, ignorance is no longer a good excuse” for inaction to tackle the threat.

That’s the front page of the Huffington Post today and it’s clear the IPCC doesn’t tell many jokes! But the problem is either as a species we are asleep, are failing and also brow beaten under a mechanism bigger than any individual, or Doom and Gloom turns people off. Just as real footage of what happened in Nazi Germany closed eyes, while human soap operas on TV massively opened hearts and minds. People have to empathize directly, Mankind cannot stand too much reality, and the first medium for that is drama and fiction. Since an element of it is in Light of The White Bear on Kickstarter, at least you can prove a moments awareness and sad eyed solidarity by going to have a look. There are only 9 days to go.

A Chain Letter approach too would be to target just on good mate today who might enjoy a beautifully designed, signed book, an animal epic, all the other ideas at Phoenix Ark too and pledge, by pressing the Back this Project button. Perhaps only matching what you have kindly done. You can see a quick talk and the project by CLICKING HERE
