The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has submitted its latest report, and with it comes the unquestionably clear perspective that the Earth’s ecological situation is heading towards the land of no return. Indeed we can now be certain that since the 1950’s, the extreme dependence on fossil fuels as well as the capitalist resourcing of the ecosystem has been proven to be the leading causes of the world’s current levels of global warming. Thus in spite of what critics may say, we are definitely in an epoch of anthropocene, a geological period of history where human civilization has significantly impacted the Earth’s ecological balance.

About Makere

A transplanted New Zealand Scots/Maori academic/grandmother/random singer and sometime activist, my life is shaped by a deep conviction of the necessity for active critical engagement in the multi-faceted global and local crises of being and survival of species that confront us in the 21st century, the urgency of re-visioning the meaning of thriving together, and the contribution of Indigenous knowledge systems to a truly sustainable and just global society.
