Many folk have heard that the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. made the comment that the U.S. government [was/is] “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today”. This was in context to a speech delivered on April 4, 1967 at Riverside Church in New York City – exactly one year before his untimely death. Though not as well-known as his other speeches, this is one of the ones that speak deeply to my soul. Because of a few “blips” in the audio, I tried to include include the entire speech to be read along with the speech. It was, however, longer that what is allowed here.

For decades now, Australians have embraced curbside recycling in the belief that our waste was actually going somewhere to be reused. What is perhaps less well-known is that the somewhere was China for about half of the recyclable rubbish that Australians produce. But not anymore. This year China has declared it no longer wants to be the world’s dumping ground and this reality has thrown Australia’s recycling system in crisis with the very real possibility that our recycled waste will be heading for landfill here soon.

Today, we consume a truly vast amount of energy – with demand continuing to skyrocket at an alarming rate. We know that producing this energy has significant environmental impacts and emitting so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere could cause catastrophic climate change. In this film, three academics look at wind power, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and material efficiency as examples of how we can cut our C02 emissions. They suggest that we must act now in order to avoid the serious risks of man-made global warming, one of our greatest challenges in the 21st century.
