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.

Fighting the Police when you can't see the evidence
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: I'm in the news this week. I have an ongoing case against the NZ Police in front of the Human Rights Review Tribunal regarding the Police breaching my privacy and my civil rights when Police gained access to my banking records minus a warrant.
A Mass surveillance response would be unacceptable
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: There are already murmurs being made that the GCSB, SIS and Police need mass surveillance powers to combat the extremism that erupted so violently towards Muslims in Christchurch last week.
