Climate change is the main environmental threat that weaponizes all the others. Here are a list of the primary things we can do.
- Protect your money!
- Australian Groups
- Sydney Groups
Protect your money
Please – divest your superannuation from fossil fuel funds. This will stop your investments funding the problem, while protecting your retirement fund from tanking! Fossil fuels are fast becoming stranded assets and losing value.
Then – especially given the higher energy costs of 2020 – buy solar panels for your roof – if you can. They’ll pay for themselves in just a few years.
Finally – join a local activist group. You will get to know your own neighbourhood, city and state better, make new friends, and make an impact. Use this UN reference for tips on what to do. There’s bound to be something if you just google your city and “climate action” – or check Facebook groups for your area. If not, try the international groups below.
