This poetry manifests the uniquely global perspective of the author's experience. After sailing the world's oceans for fifteen years, campaigning for the environment on Greenpeace ships, Emma has returned home to Australia to express her vast love for our planet through words as well. In efficient and elegant verse, she acknowledges the terrifying reality of the climate crisis and our uncaring governments. She explores many of the fascinating and diverse aspects of life on Earth and comes to the conclusion that we have no choice but to give everything we have to defend our own existence and that of all other living beings. The burden is immense, but we must carry it. Finally Emma finds transformative hope in taking action and inspiration in the beauty of lyrical language.

About the Author

Emma Briggs has built a loyal and ever-growing online audience for her writing over the past couple of years. Drawing on her experiences as a frontline anti-coal activist in Australia and sailing the seven seas for Greenpeace for fifteen years, Emma's stories, blogs and poetry aim to inspire others to take action against climate change: the most serious threat against life in the history of our planet. She has lost track of all the countries she has visited, but is now happy to stay at home in the seaside village of Byron Bay in New South Wales with her husband and visiting water dragons.
