‘The Shock of the Anthropocene’ by Bonneuil and Fressoz. I decided it was time to read this – I’m taking it very slowly! 

…. climate change, increases in extinction of species and loss of habitats, problems relating to air pollution, and other major changes to our planet including new substances being deposited in the planet’s ecosystems – all reflecting a change in the Earth system, these and other major transformations ‘that attest our entry into the Anthropocene’

Since teaching ‘Earthkeepers’ (Earth Education programme www.eartheducation.org.uk), then being a member of Green Tourism (Green Tourism) where possible I make decisions – just small gestures really – towards a more sustainable way to live. 

We live on one planet with limited natural resources. That’s a reality we need to carefully track and address if we’re serious about fulfilling the global commitments of the Paris Climate Accord and the Sustainable Development Goals (2016)” Mathis Wackernagel, co-inventor of the Ecological Footprint and CEO of Global Footprint Network.
