Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.
I have begun to think about the next piece in my climate change protest art series. I have time. The Aussie government isn’t in any hurry to beat me to the punch line. Its climate action ambitions do not appear to be high, or low, or whatever. despite its own peculiar protestations.
There have been a number of polls over the last year that indicate a majority of Aussies are concerned about climate change and want the national government to do more to tackle climate change, including ruling out new coal and gas projects. However, the Government’s plans are best summed up by its latest campaign slogan, “can do capitalism”. Catchy, eh?
Today, my song/tune choice is F Major, composed and performed by Hania Rani. Because we don’t all need to go to Iceland to appreciate its beauty but we can spoil it by being too much, even on the other side of the world.
Tread lightly, everyone.
PS. Aussies, Simon Holmes à Court has established a fund raising entity, Climate 200, to support community action to elect to the Australian parliament independent candidates who are committed to climate change action and restoring integrity in politics.
