Today Trade ministers from 12 countries negotiating the gigantic 'Trans Pacific Partnership' have reached agreement on a trade deal which sets the economic rules for 40% of the world economy and threatens global sustainability. The TPP favours safeguards for corporate investments over safeguards for nature.

Yet the fight is not over -- the TPP still faces a number of challenges before being ratified at the national level, with a hostile US Congress, an election in Canada, a court action in Japan and wide spread public opposition in Malaysia. If you are concerned about climate change and human rights, now is the time to make your voice heard about this destructive deal!

The Environmental Serenity Prayer
https://youtu.be/CE8XbkYh2Gg

Gaia grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
The brevity of a beautiful day and my time upon the earth,
The harshness of the seasons and futility of a world without mirth.
Of people who are foolish, the heartless and the cruel,
The death of all our loved ones - natures immutable rule.

Gaia grant me the courage to change the things that I can;
Such as impatience with ignorance in all its forms -
Consciousness raising to basic humanitarian norms,
Respect for our ancestors bones and sacred circles of stones -
Spiritual diversity imbues this life with mysterious meanings unknown,
Saving ancient forests and trees who make the air that we breathe -
Our narrow parameters of existence enabled by evironments we need,
Getting rid of greenhouse gassess and anthropogenic emissions -
By curbing industrial air pollution and such short sighted commissions,
Offsetting offsetting because lifes microhabitats are rare -
And cannot be replaced at goblin markets of biochemical fare,
Forgoing fracking - both public and secret -
That earth be safe without carcinogenic chemical seepage,
Dropping dioxin toxins and plant pesticide armagedon -
By fostering farming that is safe to the seventh generation,
Barring gene splicings and science fiction mutations -
By supporting a sustainable world built on ecological foundations,
Rescinding radiation, nuclear-atomic aberration -
For sunlight and windpower and possibly clean fusion salvation,
Ommitting oil spills from oceans by choosing -
Other forms of energy and greater care using,
Abandoning xenoestrogens in birth control pills -
And countless strange medecines that do not cure our ills,
Ending genocide and ecocide in all of its forms -
By supporting green business that all survive lifes storms,
Not a call for new luddites and progress avoiders,
But rather for compassion, so please come and join us.

Gaia grant me the wisdom to know the difference today,
To take personal action in every small way -
Choices I make to give and to take,
To understand the consequences and blessings,
Awake.

The Environmental Serenity Prayer
Poem c. Titus.L 2014

Sea-level rise set in motion by near-term carbon emissions threatens major coastal cities across the world
Limiting warming to 2 degrees C would make a huge difference for London, New York City, and Rio.
