A defining moment

November 17, 2021

On Monday night our book Fine Line was launched at a well attended function at Edgewater,  Lake Wanaka. Our long time friend Gus Roxburgh did a great job as MC and climate scientist Tim Naish spoke of the timeliness and power of Fine Line.

We had timed the launch of the Fine Line book to coincide with the termination of COP26 when we hoped to celebrate the defining moment in history when world leaders finally acted to prevent climate breakdown with an agreement to hold  global heating below 1.5 degrees.

Tragically once again governments failed to act decisively enough and the goal of COP26 was not achieved. The fine line we are treading just became even more fine.

But it was a defining moment for Philippa and I after 25 years working on Fine Line around the world – celebrating with so many friends and supporters.

Some asked what will we do next?  Our answer – keep creating art about solutions.
