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.

Climate Crisis and Economic Crisis are Linked - Nicholas Stern

by Gary 3/9/2009 7:56:00 AM

Famed UK Economist, Sir Nicholas Stern says that the causes of the climate crisis and the current economic crisis are linked and the solutions to both crises are also linked.

He said that lack of action on the economic crisis, despite early warning signs, resulted in the crisis being much worse than might have otherwise been the case. Similarly each day that we delay taking action on climate change will make the consequences worse for future generations.

Stern says that those calling for action on climate change to be delayed due to the economic crisis are misguided. He says that actions such as insulating homes, building of new infrastructure or research and development into green tecnologies will help create jobs today and into the future.
