THE WONDER OF LIFE PODCAST: 011
It’s time to be real

Don’t Avoid It
There is another way to save our world we just haven’t tried it yet.
In case you hadn’t noticed, the planet we call home is a little bit F**ked right now. Sorry if you don’t like that word but we do have far more to worry about than the use of our language and in all honesty, I can’t think of a better word to describe the current state of the planet, can you?
So back to the point. We literally have just 12 years left to reduce the global temperature of the planet in order to save it from the point of no return and from potentially alarming rates of mass destruction brought on by a rebellion of natural causes like you see in the films. Which, by the way, we are seeing glimpses of already.
The reason I'm telling you this is because I have a relatively simple plan on how we can solve this problem, save the planet and organise society in a better way than what we have now but I’m going to need your help.
When I studied Business Sustainability Management at Cambridge University I learnt all about the SDG’s which is the acronym of the lesser known Sustainable Development Goals that have been laid out before us by those in the know at 2015’s Paris Agreement. Below you can see the fancy plan but please keep reading this blog before you go and look into them further.
For those of you who don’t know, SDG's are a brightly coloured set of logical steps that have been put together by the experts as a blueprint/road map of what we need to do on a global scale to save Mother Earth. It includes all areas such as poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.
It's very well-intentioned and mapped out to the nth degree, but it’s still not enough.
Now, you know as well as I do that we could do with some super hero’s right about NOW to help us save our planet. Plus most kids (and adults if they are honest) wanted to be a superhero at some point. So we do have plenty of candidates amongst us, but again we are missing the key ingredient. Super Hero’s have FUN. But there seems to be zero humour or fun in the SDG’s plan for us to engage with ‘THE BIG PLAN’. Hence the lack of adoption by nearly ALL of us.
I was amazed at the depths to which they have gone on this plan and thought why don’t we all know about this? I mean, how do we not already have the biggest global marketing campaign there ever was, flying around the planet with every brand and celebrity you can think of backing the urgency of this? An ad campaign so big no one can miss it, like one of those yearly adverts by Coco Cola telling us the holidays are coming as if we didn’t know already.
Why is it still business as usual? Do we have a Planet B to go to that no one told me about?
After thinking about this in detail the penny finally dropped. The SDG’s currently don’t and simply won’t have the peoples vote. Most people don't even know the SDG's exist. When the press tells us that all countries are involved (except the US which you have to ask Trump about) what they actually mean is that the people in the places of power for each one of those countries involved have agreed that we need to act, but so far they have unfortunately failed to engage the people on the scale that is needed with an inspirational reason to change. So that’s where we come in.
So here’s how we start to make a change ...
As leading scientists and our greatest Guru's tell us, energy flows where attention goes. So logically it would seem that our energy needs to be combined and fully focused into ONE direction for the greatest effect. We need to direct the global energy on to the people. To show them that they matter and that we do have power when we unite against the powers that no longer serve us. Check this out before you continue reading.
Now I know this sounds like a Russel Brand style revolution but all I am asking you for is some support to try something we have never tried before on mass without violence. I do have a FUN PLAN we could jump on board and you know as well as I do that this world is missing solidarity and it seems that everyone you know somehow feels lonely.
With a decent amount of global awareness, we can create a mass movement as we have never seen before. If you have ever been to a football match or a concert you will know how it feels when the crowds unite together. Imagine the energy we could create if we all focused on putting a stop to the mess we are all partly responsible for.
I believe it’s time to come together like we have never been before because quite frankly I’m puzzled by the fact that we have millions of well-intentioned charities and policies set out all doing their bit to try and change things but somehow we have more problems than we have ever had and it’s getting worse by the day.
Our media can not be trusted, our leaders lack empathy and our current system falls under the same heading as I pointed out in the first sentence of this blog. I can’t say it again as my Mum has already told me off for that.
So through sheer lack of not having a better option do you think you are up for joining a Global Movement as you have never experienced before?
If so, please sign up below and trust that we can build this if we come together.
I have a plan for us to launch this movement that will be released in May 2019 via a documentary I am filming in Iceland.
If you are keen to hear the plan when it’s released please sign up below.
