The UN Geneva event pictured took place about a week after Hurricane Dorian had destroyed lives on many thousands on the bahamas. In the UN language about 50 of 200 nations are SIDS (Small Island Nations) -while small on land they face huge ocean estates- if we destroy their fish, their coral, heat up their waters their future is bleak. At the beginning of the week the president of St Lucia clarified how global financiers after 9/11 made things worse for sids- because a few had money laundered , a move had been made to exclude many sids from the electronic world of finance. He also explained how the elite global economists eg IMF had misvalued sids- when you require them to grow their economy but provide no funding for infrastructure upgrades caused by the rest of the worlds warming- you design a global economy aimed at destroying peoples of sids.
While all these financial arguments have not moved the policy of the G7 nations much in last 20 years, it turns out that the nature broadcasting of David Attenborugh has. Since the beginning of UK tv Attenborough has told the stories of the natural world. In his recent Blue Planet II series, a billion viewers including a quarter from china on mobiles saw the stories of fish being killed off by plastic waste and the death of coral. The reduce plastic challenge appears to be uniting the peoples of the world faster than even trump can deny. Thank you bbc; thank you David Attenborough- may the UN finally represent the peoples not just the top powers of nations- that at least is my understanding of what the circular economy will need to map- whats yours? firstname.lastname@example.org
