I’ve just released my brand new single, Like I Remember You, with an extra special video featuring the beautiful Great Australian Bight.
I’ve had an incredible time learning about the Bight and the magical creatures that live there. And filming this video on board the Rainbow Warrior was a dream come true. This is my way of adding my voice to the campaign to stop risky oil drilling in the Great Australian Bight.
I’ve always been captivated by the beauty of nature. My dad owned a plant nursery and I spent my childhood surrounded by trees and birds. I think that’s why it’s been so special to be able to add my voice to the campaign to stop oil drilling in the Great Australian Bight. It’s such a wild and unique stretch of ocean – over 85% of the wildlife in the Bight lives nowhere else on earth.
Diane, you’ve already stood with me to put a stop to oil drilling in the Bight. You’re making a real difference by pressuring the Australian government to keep oil companies out of our pristine waters. Can you do one more thing to help me, and help the campaign?

PS. If you want to do more, forward this email to a friend and ask them to sign on to the petition too – we need as many people as possible to speak out against oil drilling in the Great Australian Bight.
A lot of you have been asking me — “how can I convince my EMF-skeptic husband, wife, kids, friends, co-workers?”
This talk I gave at the 2018 Nourish Vermont event last year might just be the answer. The tone is light, the information factual but not too sciencey, and the presentation complete.
If they can sit in front of a 60-minute video, you might just convince them:
The good news is that I’ve been invited to present again this year at Nourish Vermont. Can’t wait to visit the pristine Shelburne Farms again, who are graciously hosting the event every year.
Any suggestions of what my topic should be this year, or the angle of the presentation? Thanks for your input!
PS — Will let you know when the tickets for Nourish Vermont 2019 are in sale. Would be great to meet you in person!

South Australia’s local communities and unique marine life are reaping the benefits from SA’s world-class marine parks and sanctuaries.
Deadly seismic blasting has just been approved in the whale-rich waters of the Great Australian Bight. These sonar cannons fire loud explosions every 10-15 seconds. 24 hours a day. 7 days a week.
They can kill scallops and tiny zooplankton more than a kilometre away. They can damage whales’ hearing and keep them away from key feeding and breeding grounds. They could even affect the immune system of lobsters.It’s not only the deadly impacts of seismic blasting on marine life. Late last year, leaked documents showed an oil spill in our Great Australian Bight could be catastrophic, reaching as far as Bondi!
Oil exploration is just too harmful and too risky in the deep, wild waters of the Great Australian Bight – with the potential to devastate our marine life, local communities, fishing and tourism businesses.
These extraordinary waters are a haven for 36 types of whales and dolphins, including the world’s most important nursery for the endangered southern right whale. They’re also home to Australia’s most important sea lion nursery and some of Australia’s most important fisheries.
Thanks to you and tens of thousands of outraged Australians, oil giants BP and Chevron have already dropped their plans to drill in the Bight.
For our marine life and way of life,
