Ward off Climate Change

About the author

Gary Warden was raised in the Perth Hills. After graduating from the University of Western Australia with a degree in Geology, Gary joined BHP Billiton where he spent 18 years working in a variety of roles in a number of locations around the world. Prior to leaving BHP Billiton in December 2006, Gary was Global Manager for the company's US$1Billion business improvement program.

While he was originally sceptical about the claims relating to climate change, he became convinced of the urgency of the issue in early 2006. He left BHP Billiton primarily to spend more time with his young family, but also to dedicate himself to creating a more sustainable life for himself and his family and to support others in making that change.

In September 2007 he was trained by Al Gore and has delivered the "Inconvenient Truth" lectures to thousands of west australians since then. In November 2007 Gary ran for the senate in the Federal Election representing the Climate Change Coalition.

In addition to his climate change lectures, he has facilitated Living Smart workshops across Perth. Between 2008 and 2009 he was on the Executive Committee of the Conservation Council of Western Australia including one year as Vice President.

Gary co-founded and is Executive Director of the very exciting Days of Change program, one of the largest sustainability programs in Australia and is now General Manager WA for Eco-Kinetics, one of the largest Solar PV companies in Australia and subsidiary of ASX-listed CBD Energy.

If you would like to know a little more about climate change and why I became so concerned about the challenges it is bringing, check out the "Why I'm Concerned About Climate Change" story under the "Information" tab above.

  If you'd like to know what I and my family have done to reduce our carbon emissions to zero, or what you can do to reduce your emissions, then check out the stories under the "Information" and then the "Take Action" tabs.

I am helping to educate the community about climate change by delivering Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" lectures. If you would like to know more about these lectures, would like to know my lecture schedule, or would like to request a new lecture, then go to the story under the "Information" and then the "Lectures" tabs.

Lastly, climate change is a serious topic, and it is easy to get a little depressed about the ramifications of climate change. If you'd like a few laughs on the topic of climate change then check out the YouTube videos that I've loaded on the page under "Information" and "Humour".
