Congratulations to Deena Evans and Michael Hipgrave, winners of the 999 Hero Award at the #WhoCaresWins Awards

Deena, a Paramedic, was saved by her colleague Michael after a patient stabbed her in the chest on a 999 call-out.

“When most of us would, quite naturally, turn away and seek safety, our emergency responders rise to the occasion running straight towards the danger to provide vital and often life-saving support” - Prince William

I read his Earthshot book foreword. He sounds coherent, earnest, and dug in for the long haul. No word salad or anything vapid. Plus he’s got Sir David Attenborough!!! I swoon.

Rebecca English article in the DM. I’d post but I’m on my phone and can’t figure it out.

Here it is:

https://www.dailymail.co....-face-climate-change.html
Prince William urges humanity 'not to give up' in the face of 'terrifying' and ‘exponential’ climate change in a foreword to the new book for his landmark £50million Earthshot Prize

Quote
Prince William is urging humanity 'not to give up' in the face of 'terrifying' and 'exponential' climate change.

The future British king says he understands why people feel 'so despondent, so fearful and so powerless' in the face of a such a rapidly approaching 'tipping point'.

But in the foreword to a new book accompanying his landmark £50million Earthshot Prize, the royal sounds a rare note of optimism.

Recalling his very personal moment of clarity following a trip to Namibia in 2018 that led him to set up the initiative, he says: 'I was hit by a wave of global pessimism.

'The headlines were dominated by a sense that world leaders were not moving fast enough. There was widespread finger pointing and political and geographical division. To those of us following at home, it wasn't an inspiring sight.

'I understood why the mood was full of despair, of course. The challenge facing our planet is immense. We were about to enter what scientists say is the most consequential decade in history.'

It's a great idea, and these sound like amazing organizations.  So well done for spotlighting them because even the ones that don't win will have a tremendous boost in visibility and awareness, and hopefully then donations from the public or sponsors!   Thumb up

However...

I cannot get past him saying we need to reduce our fossil fuel consumption when he fails to lead the way in that.  Not only that but we all know his personal carbon footprint would dwarf the sum total of the majority of us Dishers put together.  And when you factor in Queen Elizabeth successfully lobbying the Scottish government to be literally the only person exempt from the Green Energy laws...all I see is someone who is willing to put other people's money where his mouth is, but who isn't willing in anyway to walk the walk.

Yes I know he has a peculiar set of needs for security and I'm not interested in rehashing that argument.  But literally nothing in the way he chooses to live backs up how he wants the rest of us to live.  Either this is an urgent crisis or it isn't, and if it is, then lead by example and convince your family to lead by example as well.

How would one even begin to choose??  I think I lean towards the ones about providing more water (especially the one about converting wastewater into usable water) just because of the sheer urgency and need for reliable clean safe water.  But so many of them are so good.

Maybe Princess Marie can partner with the anti-food waste one from Italy since that's her cause in Denmark...create a continent-wide focus on eliminating food waste!
