Meanwhile, the planet is melting
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury

The latest state of the climate report by the World Meteorological Organisation out this month makes for some grim reading.

It states that warming has reached dangerous levels and that the Pacific is facing the realities of that change now.

So how do we culturally respond to a political system that won't adapt and an economy that can't adapt?

I think the friction of climate change will start to explode in other areas. Children are rising up with climate strikes, activists are organising direct action movements and self reliance cultures and in the worst mutation, even the terrorist who committed the atrocity in Christchurch claimed to be committing his murder for the environment as much as a racial murder.

Eco fascism is not something we would normally link to climate change, but if we are still in denial at the enormous adaptations global warming will require, it's a radicalised link that will only multiply.

Taking on different cultural values towards the land is the only step forward if we are to begin that adaptation.

I will continue writing about the state taking children until something meaningful has occurred
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: If you have the privilege of a platform, you must endeavour to use that platform for good. I have written previous columns about the extraordinary abuse of power by the state when they take children into their 'care'.
State Spying and a Police who see no spying, hear no spying and speak no spying
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury:: John Campbell's remarkable investigation at the beginning of the week into a Government agency tasked with looking after earthquake survivors using corporate spies to secretly tape complaining earthquake survivors was made more important by the remarkable announcement midweek from the NZ Police that found nothing illegal in the actions of anyone involved.
