Black cockatoos are constant companions in my bit of the south coast at the moment. They are flying in regularly to access water from our neighbours birdbaths and maybe to seek some solace from the incredibly smoky fire conditions that are threatening us.
Incredibly our local council feels there is no need to declare a climate emergency. Yet for much of the past two weeks fire has blocked parts of the Princes Highway and the Kings Highway from Canberra. It looks and feels like armageddon!
The lack of political leadership to confront climate chaos is stunning! In our 30 plus years of leadership development, we know that when emergencies happen true leadership shows up. Something we are only seeing at the community and individual level.
Ironically it has taken 16-year-old Greta Thunberg to show the way!
