Climate Change is expected to have significant implications for Local Government, communities and the environment.
The impacts we are likely to experience in Cockburn include, an increase in heat waves and storm surge, reduced water availability, an increase in the frequency and intensity of bushfires and the possible loss of flora and fauna species. These impacts may result in adverse risks and great costs to our community, the economy and the environment if we delay action. The assessment identified a range of climate change impacts that could potentially affect the southern metropolitan region. The Plan incorporates the findings of the above risk assessment and identifies a wide range of adaptation options to help minimise the impact of climate change. Reducing pollution, disturbance, pests and diseases to build reliance within our natural systems and to improve their ability to adapt to climate change. By taking these steps you can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, live more sustainably and be more resilient to climate change impacts. Unless we reduce man-made emissions, the average temperature of our planet will rise, making both floods and droughts more severe. In 1992 the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change convened and began to consider what countries could do to limit average global temperature increases and how to reduce and manage the impacts of climate change. How can you use energy more efficiently and reduce the amount of fossil fuels burnt on your behalf?

In 2008 the City of Cockburn together with the Southern Metropolitan Regional Council (SMRC) undertook a Climate Change Risk Assessment under the Local Adaptation Pathways Program.
Many foods will begin to disappear, as farmers abandon variety for large, single-crop farms. Such a diet minimizes emissions released from the production, packaging, processing, transport, preparation and waste of food.
I’ve found that a low carbon diet is not only good for the earth, but also good for my overall health.
Today’s industrial meat production is highly energy intensive, which heavily impact climate change. Processed foods are not only less healthy, but they contain too many additives, preservatives and packaging. As surface water sources dry up, groundwater becomes the resource of choice, requiring more electricity to pump it out of the ground than it takes to transport surface water. Since then, all levels of government and various non-government and private organisations have begun to formulate responses to increases in greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere and the resultant increases in global average temperatures. The Mind Map breaks down accepting a prosthesis, coping with strong emotions, finding help and support and making lifestyle changes. The Mind Map breaks down the importance of dealing with cynicism, taking responsibility, awareness of the changes happening to our planet and how we can help to reduce the effects of global warming.
The Mind Map breaks down goal setting, ensuring that goals are smart and achievable plus steps that can be taken individually within the home and collectively through corporate avenues. The Mind Map breaks down how climate change affects our planet, predictions of what may happen if global warming is not addressed and the impact climate change has on the economy.


The Mind Map breaks down what your nervous system does for your body, how you can help care for your health and the part your nervous system plays in how you connect with the world around you. The Mind Map breaks down methods of exercise, the help you can seek in maintaining your health, sensible food intakes, tips for improving your sleep and coping with stress.
The Mind Map breaks down looking after nature, caring for the environment, enhancing our senses for greater appreciation of the world around us and connecting with nature. The Mind Map breaks down states of matter; solids, liquids and gases plus types of matter and energy. The Mind Map breaks down some of the barriers to raising awareness and taking responsibility both individually and collectively, personally and within corporate fields. I was able to understand how things were connected… things that you learned in 20 years in like one day. Fortunately, we can change our buying and eating habits in a way that will help reduce climate change. According to Sustainable Table, organic farms emit up to two-thirds less carbon dioxide than industrial farms per acre. To conserve water and the energy it takes to move it, you can create meals from recipes that use the least amount of water possible. In addition, how we can change our behaviours and attitudes, including making sensible life choices and encouraging public figures to help raise awareness. The Mind Map breaks down some of the facts and statistics relating to global warming and the greenhouse effect. Among these is adopting a low carbon diet espoused by the University of Cambridge Colleges Low Carbon Meals Scheme. Try to shop at your local farmers’ market or co-op, or join a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm.
Department of Agriculture’s recommended dietary allowance for most adults is 56 grams of protein per day for men (an 8-ounce burger made with 85 percent lean ground beef) and 46 grams for women (a small skinless chicken breast).
So buy half as much protein-based foods and opt for certified organic and pasture-raised meat and dairy.
