They sure are mate. Planting perennial pastures are always better, for sure and if they are deep-rooted perennial all the better!

G'day Sevrin:

I have so far raised AUD 1960 for the ACT Greens' election campaign.

My first master's degree was in geology. My last tertiary qualification was in public administration. I am interested in policy challenges of environmental management.

Hello all,


May this message find you in the best of health and spirits.


I've been a greenie longer than a believer (check my posts elsewhere on why I converted, if you're interested), so very happy to see these two things combined here on BeliefNet. In Birmingham (England, UK) we're using faith (I mean NOT proselytising, but appealling to people's existing faith) for communities to go greener, see faithandclimatechange.wordpress.com . I don't have a car and some other green 'brownie points' (used by Brownies, like Scouts for girls), but my to do list to decrease eco-footprint (have to tread lightly!) is still too long to mention. Looking forward to interesting exchanges here.

Re "I am interested in policy challenges of environmental management." - I have a Post-Graduate Diploma in Environmental Policy... you'd better be interested in politics and what makes people tick... the vested interests (e.g. of Big Oil) and their money (money talks too much...), the preference for most people to stay in their comfort zone... but MOST FASCINATING (and urgent, considering climate change/ chaos) topic nonetheless.

Last winter I raised most funds for the Greens.


Dear Globalnomad:


Post-Graduate Diploma in Environmental Policy


Ranger badges Put it to use.


I have a master's degree in petroleum geology and an advanced certificate in public administration.


interested in politics


Party membership is voluntary.


what makes people tick


When selling raffle tickets, I exploited people's greed and self-indulgence.


vested interests


In the public service, I found denying liability to be a very strong reaction!


Big Oil


I have worked for oil and oil service companies. As a petroleum securities analyst, I discovered that the forecast by Royal Dutch Shell and its consequent performance were in opposite directions!


money


Macroeconomics was one of my poorer subjects.


preference for most people to stay in their comfort zone


Poison warning People insist on creating disaster!


urgent, considering climate change


Primates are insensitive to slow change, and poor at working with risk.

Great to hear of your positive achievements, Karma_Yeshe_Dorje! We can all take that as an example. In peace, globalnomad. PS: I'm the daughter of an oil man, which inadvertently turned me into a greenie.

G'day Globalnomad:


an oil man


I found that an oil company did to science what a brothel does to love.


inadvertently turned me into a greenie


A reaction.
