Place Where You Stand
Walk with the earth,
To the place where you stand
Feel where you are
Feel the pressure of the ground
Feel the pull of gravity
Anchored as you are
Feel the energy of the land
Moving up through your feet and legs
For you are a creature of this place
Open your awareness
View the landscape
See the portraits
Find yourself a higher place
Feel now, what arrives
Before you leave
Alternatively, from the comfort of a chair, imagine your Walk with Nature to a place like this:

"Climate anxiety is serious. It could lead us all to a crisis much bigger than the climate crisis, a crisis of inaction. In the UK alone, 75% of the adult population feel climate anxiety. A feeling that is proven to be eased by actions, big or small." What say you where you live?

Deforestation is slowing, but still falling short of climate goals: This week, the Forest Declaration Assessment–the first report since COP26 to measure progress on preventing forest loss–found that nations worldwide are failing to meet international targets to stop forest loss and degradation.
Although the rate of global deforestation slowed by 6.3% in 2021 compared to the 2018-2020 baseline, this decrease fell short of the 10% needed to meet the goal of ending deforestation by 2030. Using a number of metrics, including the forest landscape integrity index and forest canopy changes, researchers discovered that tropical Asia is currently the only region on track to do so.
Momentum in this region is largely driven by Indonesia–normally one of the largest contributors to deforestation–where government and corporate efforts to address the harms of palm-oil production contributed to a 25% loss of old-growth forests fell by 25% in 2021.
In addition to stronger mandatory action and increased funding, the report's authors emphasized the importance of supporting Indigenous forest stewardship by strengthening land rights and addressing land-use challenges. https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-022-03372-6 by Natasha Gilbert Found in The Waggle 30 link > https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?ui=2&ik=dc6b83e111&view=lg&permmsgid=msg-f%3A1747843910689802260&ser=1
