Ward off Climate Change

About the author

Gary Warden was raised in the Perth Hills. After graduating from the University of Western Australia with a degree in Geology, Gary joined BHP Billiton where he spent 18 years working in a variety of roles in a number of locations around the world. Prior to leaving BHP Billiton in December 2006, Gary was Global Manager for the company's US$1Billion business improvement program.

While he was originally sceptical about the claims relating to climate change, he became convinced of the urgency of the issue in early 2006. He left BHP Billiton primarily to spend more time with his young family, but also to dedicate himself to creating a more sustainable life for himself and his family and to support others in making that change.

In September 2007 he was trained by Al Gore and has delivered the "Inconvenient Truth" lectures to thousands of west australians since then. In November 2007 Gary ran for the senate in the Federal Election representing the Climate Change Coalition.

In addition to his climate change lectures, he has facilitated Living Smart workshops across Perth. Between 2008 and 2009 he was on the Executive Committee of the Conservation Council of Western Australia including one year as Vice President.

Gary co-founded and is Executive Director of the very exciting Days of Change program, one of the largest sustainability programs in Australia and is now General Manager WA for Eco-Kinetics, one of the largest Solar PV companies in Australia and subsidiary of ASX-listed CBD Energy.

Where to from Here

Regardless of what the Climate Change Coalition decides to do at its AGM next week, I have decided to focus my efforts to combat climate change outside the political sphere.

I am keen to continue to educate the community about climate change and, more importantly, what can be done to combat climate change. As such I am ramping up my delivery of the Al Gore Climate Change Lectures. You can check out my current lecture schedule under the "Information" and then the "Lectures" links at the top of this page.

These lectures have been extremely well received. I've now delivered to Schools, Rotary Clubs, Soroptomists Clubs, Government Organisations and public meetings. I've been able to get the message across successfully in as little as 25 minutes, however have typically used as much as 90 minutes to do this.

If you would like me to present to your club, association, school, church or group, then please don't hesitate to get in touch with me.

I have been working with a group call Friends of the Environment (FOTE) which brings together teachers from across the metropolitan area to provide resources and programs for schools to undertake environmental activities such as tree planting and rehabilitation. We're working on developing the website for the group and I'll include a link to this once it is up and running.
