Many thanks to the wonderfully talented ecopoet Janet Lees for sharing my ecopoetry film with the Deep Adaptation forum on their platform
and thank you to the DAF for being kind enough to like the work, too. It is unfortunate we have to make these films but this is both about the climate crisis and the biosphere and also the loss of my personal pet and companion, who I spent every day and evening with, for most of her life. In terms of this I would recommend the forum if you are struggling with the enormity of what is happening to our climate, and how we are going to change our lives, and force change everywhere. See The Deep Adaptation forum
Another place I would suggest is the Just Stop Oil campaign juststopoil.org/zoom. One of the most inspiring people in that is Zoe Cohen who can be seen bringing the Jeremy Vine TV hosts back to reality in this wonderful interview
I think this shows how we are so schizophrenic. People put on their suits and talk the talk just to get through their day, but know the reality underneath and realise the implication that everything, but everything needs to have a new approach to living. You can't have a frothy chat about a bit of heat when there are such massive implications and you can't sweep it under the carpet. Good for you Zoe!
