We are really way behind the deadline for saving the planet for ourselves. In many parts of the world, not least in our own corner of it, the effects of climate change have already altered landscapes and lives, led to conflict and privation, and placed in jeopardy the future of our children’s generation. What positive action we do now will perhaps mitigate the ruinous aftermath for our grandchildren. Agam represents our hopes and our most fervent prayers for them.
It is only right that we give the issue of climate change our best efforts, whether that be in writing or some other form of action; after all, this blue planet is our only home and source of life. To borrow from Thoreau, “Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself?”
