Our New Site
We’ve moved to a new site: Earth in Transition. You’ll find our new posts, along with the Zoe archives, on the new site.
(If you subscribe to the weekly Zoe e-mail, you’ll still get the weekly e-mail from Earth in Transition. Plus, we’re on Facebook, and soon on Twitter and Google Plus.)
About Earth in Transition
It’s increasingly obvious to people everywhere that our world is now in transition. We’ve crossed a tipping point, and there’s no going back. More than 20,000 species are at “high risk” of extinction. Extremes of weather show that climate change is now a fact of life all across the world.
And while there are more animal protection groups than ever before, the situation for most animals just continues to deteriorate.
What is this going to mean – for us, for our children, for all the other animals and for the planet? How did it come about? And why is so little being done about it?
There’s still time to mitigate some of the damage, but there’s not a whole lot of evidence that that’s going to happen. So we’re probably looking at things getting considerably worse before anything gets better.
With a simpler format and more focused content, Earth in Transition will be exploring all of this as we continue to check out the daily news and relate it to what’s happening to animals and the world of nature.
We humans are very good at pulling together in a crisis. And right now, that crisis is in the news every day. The big question is: Will we do what it takes to create a new relationship to our fellow animals, to nature and to each other? Meanwhile, there are some important things that each of us can do.
Thanks for being part of this work. We’ll see you over at Earth in Transition.
