Just done KMTV on the ten hottest years being since 2002. I explained that there was even worse news out there right now, the Arctic is literally burning and records are being broken. Climate change is happening harder and faster than predicted.

1. Tell the truth. This is the greatest emergency humanity has ever faced and it is imperative that everyone understands that and keeps it at the forefront on their minds. There is only a small

2. End fossil fuel use, go carbon neutral quickly, invest in changing the way we live.

3. System change, e.g. end the ridiculous drive for economic growth and find new ways of showing progress such as measuring wellbeing and happiness.

Without number 4, 1 to 3 are not possible.
