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.

Launch of Eco-change on Wake-up WA

by Gary 4/15/2008 10:17:00 PM

Sarah Bishop and I are working together again. This time we are collaborating on a brand new weekly segment on Wake-up WA called Eco-change.

The segment went to air for the first time last Tuesday and airs every Tuesday at 7:15am on Channel 31.

Eco-change is about guiding viewers in how to make eco-friendly changes to their lifestyles.  The segment will initially take on a variety of formats including on-location and in-studio interviews, tips and advice as well as links to eco-change resources.

It will be a one-stop shop for Western Australians who are concerned about the environment and want to make a difference. 

The show borrows its theme from a song by a famous green frog - albeit modified for our purposes "It's easy being green".

If you can't receive Channel 31, you can now visit the iinet website and watch the program live on-line or you can watch the episode at any other time during the day.
