An Inconvenient Truth

If you haven't seen "An Inconvenient Truth," which won an Academy Award earlier this year, you must!

Former Vice President Al Gore, is the newly named co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, said Friday that global warming is the most dangerous challenge facing humanity. This film spells it out in black and white. (

Initially, I held back from seeing the film because I thought I might get too depressed! But Al Gore tells it like it is without getting hysterical and you realise, we can all play our part in the way we live and purchasing decisions we make.

The film title is so apt, we live in a society of convenience - fast foods, convenience meals, microwaves, cellphones, disposable nappies etc etc.

Likewise, Natural Parenting is not always "convenient", you have to go to extra effort to source purchases, grow or buy organic food but it has its' rewards!

I also attended an address yesterday by (Jeanette Fitzsimons, Green Party) on climate change. What the "Inconvenient Truth" and this address made me realise is that the world just isn't going to be around for our precious next generation, unless we all take drastic action NOW.

The Green Party have published a pocket guide on ways you can make a personal contribution to reduce Co2 emissions (see my next blog).
