Working fewer hours, being poorer and being kinder to the Earth

Working fewer hours, being poorer and being kinder to the Earth

The idea of the climate crisis, known then as global warming, first crossed my horizon in 2006 and for some time I simply listened and read.

My thoughts had solidified by 2012 and I began to write and the idea I had for meeting the challenge of the climate crisis was to make us all poorer and less able to use energy, which in 2012 was largely provided through the burning of fossil fuels.

I had come up with the idea of a four-hour work-day and as I still have those writings, it is my intention to use them as a basis for a podcast series.

In the mean-time, I urge you to listen to an enjoy the Melbourne-based group, "Music for a Warming World".
