WORLD leaders are waking up to the serious nature of climate change and biodiversity loss.  The richest nations in the world, the G 7 (UK, US, Japan, France, Italy, Germany, and Canada) have agreed to stop funding all overseas development of fossil fuels by the END OF THIS YEAR!  Bravo Bravo!

In a world first, Brazil’s Supreme Court has declared the Paris Climate Agreement a Human Rights Treaty superseding all national laws.  Bolisinaro and Brazil are doing very poorly regarding combatting climate change and halting the destruction of the Amazon Forest and other natural ecosystems.  Now, any law that is not in accord with the Paris Agreement is non-valid.  All laws must uphold the people’s right to work back towards a healthy climate.  This will start the ball rolling toward a global commitment to climate and biodiversity protection as a human right.  Bravo to Brazil’s Supreme Court.

In other news, Finland just became the first country to enact a legally binding carbon negativity act.  Bravo Finland! 

About The Rama Exhibition

Calley O’Neill is a highly respected artist, muralist, visionary designer and social ecologist from the Big Island of Hawai‘i. Journalists have described her art, which spans four decades, as ethno-visionary, dynamic, symbolic and breathtaking. Calley finds her expression through classical glaze painting in mixed media works, public murals, stained glass and mosaic. Her landmark Healing Gardens of Makahikilua master plan for North Hawai’i Community Hospital in Kamuela received national recognition among top landscape architects in the field of therapeutic garden design. A great team player, Calley’s input raises the bar and sparks innovation toward healing the Earth and its inhabitants. Journalists have described her as ‘a way-finder’, ‘a life giving force’ and ‘a force of nature.’ Calley is known for exceptional quality draftsmanship, a crystalline mastery of glaze painting, stimulating diversity, relentless experimentation, and her love of the Earth and humanity. Her magnum opus is Rama, Ambassador for the Endangered Ones, and she continually works on the exhibition paintings in her Waimea studio and her plein air pop-up studio and tree gallery at the Four Seasons Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu, where she is the Artist in Residence. Her paintings are both visual prayers and wake-up calls. Calley earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, summa cum laude from Pratt Institute, New York (1974) and a Master’s Degree in Social Ecology from Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont (1977).
