Essay by Eric Worrall

Adam Gottschalk, a freshly minted Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics, lamenting the lack of urgency in addressing climate change.

I start my first job as the world careers and threatens what enriches my life

By Adam Gottschalk FEBRUARY 18, 2024

This essay is about beginning a career at this time, in this climate.

I am 21 years old and a university student. It is 2023, early autumn. I am starting my first office job. It’s a government job: a short-term, part-time internship in the federal Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (a long name with a clumsy acronym, “DCCEEW”).

DCCEEW is doing important work. My team assists the financial sector to redirect capital towards activities that benefit biodiversity. They call these activities “nature-positive”.

Everyone in my team is positive about nature.
Would you be willing to fight and die for multiculturalism?  Would you put your life on the line for “Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity” (DIE); “Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance” (ESG); or other Marxist worldviews?  Would you go to war to preserve the right of delusional men to use women’s restrooms and dominate women’s sports?  Would you fight for any government that hunts down and imprisons J6 protesters as political hostages but celebrates Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters who cause physical injury and property damage?
