Leonardo DiCaprio deservedly won the oscar for epic film ‘The Revenant’. Collecting his award he said a few things about the environment.
“Climate change is real… it is the most urgent threat facing our entire species”.
“Let us not take this planet for granted”.
Like ‘The Revenant’ my novel, PICA, explores our relationship with the natural world. Luke is challenged to find a way to save our dying planet, and with the help of his enigmatic friend, Guy, he begins to uncover some of the secrets and ancient magic of nature.
Pollution, deforestation, garbage, over-population and our obsession with consumerism are some of the ways we are killing mother earth. Doing the recycling and not using plastic bags is great, but how can we stop the horror on a global scale?
