" We live in difficult times and many people are affected by global recession. Their priority is survival on a personal level: food, shelter, employment etc. I understand that the ongoing abuse of our planet and the ‘bigger picture’ is not high on their list of concerns.  I do, however wish that it could be communicated that the very pertinent issues surrounding climate change don’t just impact on nature but affect our daily lives. What was once a threat is now a catastrophe and somehow individuals need to be released from the imprisonment of hopelessness." Christine Simpson
