The last issue of Bird’s Eye View illustrated how birds are the “canaries in the coal mine” of climate change. In her current editorial, Katherine asks us all to face the fact that climate change – global warming – is massive and complex.

Current civilization runs on fossil fuels, and together with agriculture, the emission of greenhouse gases is considerable. Unfortunately, recognition of the magnitude of the problem can trigger apathy rather than inspire action.
Importantly though, individuals can make a difference! Read Katherine’s full editorial article here to learn how you can reduce their carbon footprint and engage the political process at various levels, from grassroots demonstrations to advocacy!
