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.

Meal Planning Made Easy

by Gary 4/16/2008 10:37:00 PM

I was delighted to find out about an Australian website that is making menu planning easy.

If you are struggling for inspiration for in the nightly meal preparation grind, or are always running out of that essential ingredient, then this site is for you.

www.mealopedia.com

The site allows you to select from a range of diet types, including vegetarian, gluten free, low carb etc and then comes up with a random selection of meals for a week. It automatically generates your shopping list for the week and will even let you know where you can find the ingredients in your local area.

I will be speaking to the owners of the website about adding a "low carbon" diet option, and to see if they can't promote organic food.

Happy cooking, and thanks to Steve Strutt for putting me on to the website.
