Sep 9 2022 - iBerry was sorry to hear of the death of Queen Elizabeth. We believe that many people around the world will recognise her personal qualities and dedication. We trust that King Charles will continue to speak out on ideas about Climate Change and sustainable living that he has promoted for some time.

Aug 20 2022 - ACTION! - Where do we go from here? This page has been updated. What action should be taken and what will it achieve? Your comments and suggestions are very welcome - Contact us.

Aug 2 2022 - The probabilities of extreme climate change leading to catastrophic outcomes for humans such as societal collapse or even extinction may or may not be small but are possibilities that should be examined in detail. A recent National Academy of Sciences paper does just that concluding that It's time for the scientific community to grapple with the challenge of better understanding catastrophic climate change. iBerry agrees. Evidently temperatures of more than 2 degC above preindustrial values were last sustained on Earth more than 2.6 million years ago, so who knows? Of course we live in hope but recent events suggest that preparing for the worst is a sensible strategy that must not be overlooked in the short term.

Jul 25 2022 - Horrified as politicians argue about economic growth while the Climate Emergency takes a back seat. How can economic growth be sustainable? Are we missing something? Will someone please contact us and explain?

May 25 2022 - Some quick comments:

  • We would like more feedback from our visitors and also more contributions. iBerry makes modest payments/donations for interesting articles/comment on any aspect of Climate Change and the environment - contact us.

  • iBerry never asks for donations but we do have some funds that can be occasionally used to support good causes, special events, charities etc - contact us.

  • iBerry focused first on basic science and we continue to provide informative links . Then we realized that whereas the science is clear the real problem is people. Now we're convinced that deep and rapid societal changes are needed if sustainable living is to be achieved for human populations. Is an ecological civilization a realistic possibility? Maybe we can find out with your help - contact us.

In a strongly worded rebuke, he says: 'It is a file of shame, cataloguing the empty pledges that put us firmly on track towards an unliveable world' "
