Today I leave Portballintrae on the first leg of my journey. I intend to use as much public transportation as I can so I am traveling the 135 miles to Dublin by Bus! At noon I travel to Belfast; then Belfast to Dublin; Dublin to Dubai; Dubai to Sydney and finally land in Christchurch on Friday 10 February at 1350 NZ time.
Why am I doing this? There are many reasons but the main one is that I feel compelled to show the world what is happening and hopefully get people to act to help protect future generations from the onslaught that has already started. It may seem that we are at the mercy of climate deniers but if we all work together we can make a positive change in our environment.
Here is an introduction to what this journey and documentary will be about.
Did you know that sea level rise is already taking its toll on not only island nations such as Kiribati in the Pacific, but that Miami Beach now floods several times a week just because of an 8 inch rise in sea level? That Tampa Bay will be under water by 2045 and New York will be taking on water by 2085?
I hope to send back "live" reports from the scene so watch this space. On the production team is Lori Knight and Patty Hartwell..they will oversee the posting of the blog and footage as well as Facebook and Twitter posts. I hope you enjoy it but more importantly go tell your elected representatives that we do not have the luxury of denying what is already happening. We must start to save ourselves now or in about one hundred years there might not be much left to save.
