In the universe are billions of galaxies, in our galaxy are billions of planets, but there is #OnlyOneEarth. Let’s take care of it.
Don’t you feel especially lucky to be an earthling living in the Lucky Country? Australia is the 12th happiest country in the world, out of 156 countries measured by the World Happiness Report.
Given all the luck we have, it might surprise you that Australia ranks 59th (6th last) out of 64 countries for climate change performance.
Should Australians focus on the things that will make them happy, or the things that will address climate change?
As it turns out, we might need to take more action on climate change so that we can be happier. Countries making the most progress on climate are sometimes actually the happiest countries on earth. Some of the countries in the top 20 for climate action score among the top for happiness as well!
However, we need to get a wriggle on. Luck has a habit of running out if we don’t use it wisely.
