EDITORIAL: 2040, what do you care?

GLOBAL warming.

Two words that divide a room quicker than a passionate Clive Palmer speech.

But fret not.

This isn't a rant about 'us against them' or 'you against me'.

I am not attempting to ram an opinion down your throat.

I write these words to simply encourage us all to think about our future.

And more importantly, the future for our children.

And our children's children.

Should global warming be a real and genuine concern for humans?

Perhaps.

But I don't think that is the most important question we should be asking ourselves.

A better question is, 'what can I do?'

Next week, the local cinema is hosting a one-off screening for the environmental documentary, 2040.

The film is a perceived vision of what our tiny, little planet will look like in the year 2040.

The screening has sold out not one, but both cinemas on the night.

This is a positive sign.

It shows that South Burnett residents are concerned about the world around them and what the future of our environment looks like.

Maybe concerned isn't the word.

Maybe they are merely intrigued.

And if nothing else, that's a pretty good place to start the conversation.
