Mouthy - Hannah raps the climateers

Film star Daryl Hannah is at the climate change summit in Mexico. So far she has criticised the conference center where the air conditioning was on high, despite it was 70 degrees outside – “a perfect temperature.”

She also condemned US Energy Secretary Steven Chu for proposing “nothing concrete”in his keynote speech.
“We need to decentralise the energy system, our food and agriculture system,” she said.  “The only way change happens is from the ground up, not the top down. Most politicians dont have the courage,” she said.
She denied environmental issues were polarising society, saying “the polarising part is advertising, its brainwashing – an attempt to make it a political issue instead of a common sense issue.”
Hannah said she lived off the grid “on a human scale – not in a McMansion,” and that she had just been at a permaculture course in Australia where she learned how to make bio-fertiliser and other old fashioned agriculture methods.

    @ Linda G: She also went and learned from the Australian Aborigines in their own sacred land, which is something U cant do in USA.

    We all need to learn on less. MY wife and family returned from Cuba late January ( we are Canadian) and it was a steady 75 during the day and slightly cooler at night. The last night at the resort we discovered the air conditioning!

    I want to learn more about solar water heating in sub tropical climates.

    politicians avoide controversial decisions as it might backlash and cost them their cushy jobs.
    our lives and futures are the cost,
    that they couldn’t care less about….
    who is this one person on earth
    who actually cares
    about us ????

    Amen…I’ve always like the Margaret Mead quote: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
    It really is up to us…

    Here’s a celebrity who really uses her fame to better the world and she should be applauded for that.
