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.

Simple Steps to A Bright Future

by Gary 4/24/2009 12:04:00 PM

Since January this year I have been working on an almost full-time voluntary basis on an exciting new climate change project called Days of Change which some of you will have already heard about.

This is a project that aims to engage 200,000 Western Australians in taking simple steps to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions during March 2010.

However this is only the start, as a project of the City of Perth Rotary Club, and with endorsement from Rotary District 9450, we intend to use the enormous reach of the Rotary organisation to expand the program to the rest of Australia in 2011 and the world from 2012.

I am proud to be an Executive Director of this project and am very excited by its enormous potential. The program was originally devised by my colleague Julian Ilich while working with the Department for Environment and Conservation and is based on extensive research on behaviour change and social marketing.

I’ve seen people make amazing changes as a result of their participation in Living Smart courses, and with this program, we hope to achieve similar changes on a much larger scale.

You will shortly be receiving the inaugural Days of Change Newsletter. While this is an important project, and I urge you to become involved, I understand that some of you may not wish to receive the newsletter, so there will be a simple unsubscribe option at the bottom of the newsletter (as there is with this newsletter).

You can find out more about the project by visiting our interim website at http://daysofchange.org.

Interesting article. It is extremely unfortunate that over the last decade, the travel industry has had to take on terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, along with the first ever real global economic collapse. Through it the industry has proven to be solid, resilient along with dynamic, acquiring new strategies to deal with trouble. There are generally fresh complications and possibilities to which the field must once more adapt and answer.

best wifi repeaters

Thanks for expressing your ideas with this blog. In addition, a misconception regarding the lenders intentions whenever talking about foreclosures is that the standard bank will not getreceive my repayments. There is a certain amount of time the bank is going to take payments occasionally. If you are far too deep inside the hole, they're going to commonly require that you pay that payment fully. However, that doesn't mean that they will have any sort of payments at all. In case you and the loan company can find a way to work one thing out, the foreclosure process may halt. However, in case you continue to neglect payments beneath new approach, the foreclosures process can pick up exactly where it left off.
