Menstrual Audit 2.0

On average, a woman will use 12,000 disposable pads and tampons in her lifetime, with the end destination being landfill. Once in landfill, they could take as long as 500-800 years to decompose. A few years ago I wrote about my Menstrual Audit and the Diva Cup, which was all about my conversion from tampons... Continue Reading →

Renewable Energy: A Very Short Introduction – Nick Jelly (2020)

I listened to this as an audio book on Borrow Box and found it to be a great refresher on renewable energy concepts I learned in university. I also picked up on a few new interesting ideas and theories. Jelly covers the main renewables including: wind, solar, hydropower, biomass, tidal, geothermal and wave. Jelly analyses...

How to Talk About Climate Change in a Way That Makes a Difference – Rebecca Huntley (2020)

I picked up this book because, although I am a very passionate about addressing climate change, I struggle to have face-to-face conversations about it with those that are less engaged than me (except online).

I have even found myself reverting to a Harry Potter strategy and started referring to it as the thing that must not be named or the (other) big C. It was also... Continue Reading →

Net Zero Emissions: Climate Change Panacea or are We Being Greenwashed?

This article was originally written earlier this year for Carbon8 as part of their National Regenerative Agriculture Day series on "What the eff is net zero". It was one of many drafts that was pushed back by the editors (read the published article, "The Race to Zero"), not because it wasn't good enough, but because... Continue Reading →

Soil – Matthew Evans (2021)

This topic may sound dull to many of you - and believe me, there were many nights listening to the audio book lulled me to sleep - however, for anyone who is interested in growing food or an ornamental garden, raising livestock or wanting a more vast array of solutions to the climate crisis, then...

The Race to Net Zero

"National Regenerative Agriculture Day is a united national movement to heal the heart of the food chain." This year the focus of NRAD was to take a deep dive into “What the bleep is NET-ZERO?" It is widely accepted now that regenerative agriculture methods are a means to heal the land and waterways damaged by intensive agriculture... Continue Reading →

Hey ScoMo, isn’t it about time you came to the table?

This time I'm sending two letters to the Australian Prime Minister, I'm not sure either will be read or responded to but I know the first will be discarded promptly (politicians don't take too kindly to impoliteness), the second one may have a chance. You can write to Scott Morrison here. Hey ScoMo, It’s me... Continue Reading →
