Dear Nature Communicators,
Thank you for our call and your inspiring Nature communications! Here’s the audio you may download, save and share: Recording
I have an invitation for you! Join me on Saturday November 4, at 8 a.m. pacific time for our last call of the year. (Then I will be traveling to Japan to teach Animal Communication for the later part of November and going into December!)
We will resume our calls the first Saturday in January on the 6th, and going forward the first Saturday in the month throughout 2018! Tuition is Free!
Over the next few months I invite you to spend 3 minutes a day (or more) talking with a plant, animal, insect or the Earth to gather wisdom on the implementation of the UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Let’s invite Nature to inform and inspire us on how to live in harmony with all life!
Not sure where to begin with your communication? Email or call – I would be delighted to assist you. Do you have something you learned from Nature which you would like to contribute? Or would you like to participate in communicating for our purpose of sharing Natures wisdom with our leaders around the world?
Wouldn’t it be tremendous to know that all beings of life on the planet have all the energy and resources they need? And, wouldn’t it be a comfort to know the energy we use going forward is not only renewable, but it is also life-giving in every aspect of its use and creation. That is our United Nations goal #7 which we are out to implement by the year 2030. Through our communications with wise beings of Nature we can accomplish this, and perhaps we may accomplish it ever sooner!

Here’s the goal and individual targets:
UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 7: ENSURE ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE, RELIABLE, SUSTAINABLE AND MODERN ENERGY FOR ALL
Facts and figures:
Modern food systems are heavily dependent on fossil fuels, consuming about a third of the world’s available energy.
Seventy percent of the energy consumed by food systems occurs after food leaves farms, in transportation, processing, packaging, shipping, storage, marketing, etc.
An estimated one-third of the food we produce is lost or wasted, and with it an estimated 38 percent of energy consumed in food systems.
Nearly one in five people (1.4 billion) around the world do not currently have access to modern electricity services.
Approximately three billion people rely on traditional biomass for cooking and heating, with adverse effects on health, the environment and economic development.
Energy has a key enabling role in achieving food security and better nutrition.
Current energy use in food systems is unsustainable. Modern food systems are heavily dependent on fossil fuels, consuming about 30 percent of the world’s available energy and producing more than 20 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
At the same time, fluctuating global energy prices can have major consequences on global food security: energy prices affect the cost of agricultural inputs and production, and so influence food prices.
To deliver more food with less and cleaner energy, food and agriculture systems will gradually need to decouple from fossil fuel dependence, and embrace renewable energy sources.
Achieving the transformation to energy-smart food systems will require a systemic perspective, coordination in policymaking, appropriate legal frameworks and a comprehensive multi-stakeholder dialogue and global partnership to support action.
Using a water-energy-food nexus approach, the FAO multi-partner programme “Energy-Smart Food for People and Climate” seeks to support stakeholders in improving energy efficiency, increasing the use of renewable energy, and improving access to modern energy services in food systems.
By 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services
By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix
By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency
a. By 2030, enhance international cooperation to facilitate access to clean energy research and technology, including renewable energy, energy efficiency and advanced and cleaner fossil-fuel technology, and promote investment in energy infrastructure and clean energy technology
b. By 2030, expand infrastructure and upgrade technology for supplying modern and sustainable energy services for all in developing countries, in particular least developed countries, small island developing States, and land-locked developing countries, in accordance with their respective programmes of support
Thank you & see you on November 4th!
With gratitude & love to share the adventure!
