Letter: Living in a climate of change

The Kootenay Co-op Radio series Climate of Change is a beautiful metaphor of what is going on.

It’s not only the climate that is changing. As global citizens, we are becoming more aware that our current strategy of economic growth and consumption are not sustainable. Even some levels of government are developing policies attempting to deal with this new reality.

International investment is changing. Energy infrastructure is changing. Although change has occurred throughout our known history, we are in the early stages of far-reaching and rapid change that has yet to be grasped or acknowledged by many.

More than ever, political will is needed to lead us through the transition to a new way of thinking and behaving. The change will happen; but we still have an opportunity to play a role in its direction.
