We should all be concerned about the disastrous increase in global temperatures, the climate change resulting and be doing everything possible to reduce carbon emissions. It is my opinion, and that of some leading scientists, that global population increase is one of the major underlying causes; put simply there are too many of us demanding too much from mother earth. 

This series of photographs focuses on the causes and outcome of our march to self destruction.

Strawberries from Japan

This is no time to idly gaze 
at spectrums in the sky
nor must we lie upon the grass 
to watch the sparrows fly.
Now is the time for action, 
now the time for deeds
get up and make a difference 
to a world that bleeds.

You’ve sucked Earths vitals dry of oil
then burnt it so you can
eat strawberries in December,
ones grown in far Japan.
They came packed up in plastic
which you just threw away
now it’s choking up the oceans;
generations of decay.

You bought stuff that you needed
much more that you did not
you roared around in cars and planes
mother Gaia you forgot.
Your greed has caused an awful mess
act now and change your ways 
work swiftly now to save the world
or face the end of days.
