Greetings to all,


We are attaching for your special interest a very challenging publication called WATERMARK  forwarded from the Catholic Religious of Australia and the Catholic Religious of NSW.  This attempts to give some interesting answers to the difficult questions about CLIMATE CHANGE. It might give you some clarity if you are still wrestling with this topic.  This critical information is really timely for us to absorb and discern as we face noticeable and extraordinary changes to our climate, as well as the fact that we have a new government who will be making crucial decisions on our behalf over the next few months. 


If you can muster up some of your resourceful energy to become active in this crucial public debate about caring for our planet, to give expression to your concern, and to let our leaders know where you stand, you have the OPPORTUNITY this coming SUNDAY, 17th NOVEMBER to join one of the many National Day Of Climate Action organised in every capital city and some regional areas by the social media group called GETUP.  Their website is: to access a gathering place near you. GETUP remind us of the frustrations faced at even the International level with this tiny snapshot (shown under) from this week’s meeting in WARSAW:


Hairs on end, tears, then a standing ovation.
That's the response chief negotiator for the Philippines, Yeb Sano, drew from the audience with his impassioned pleas for international cooperation on CLIMATE ACTION at the UN CLIMATE TALKS IN WARSAW YESTERDAY.

After this week's super typhoon Haiyan, his country is once again in ruins. Already more than 10,000 people are feared dead, his country devastated. Haiyan comes only 11 months after lethal and catastrophic typhoon Bopha, in the wake of which Sano made his first poignant plea to the international community:

"If not us, then who? If not now, then when?"  


Your JPIC Team,    Denis, Paul and Gabrielle
