WHOA! "CODE RED FOR HUMANITY"
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued a new and dire warning that unless we immediately make big changes to how we do business in the world we will face ever more climate-related catastrophes.
The message is that it's time to act. It's time to put massive amounts of pressure on government to make policies to limit such disasters.
Call the Capital Switchboard, 202-224-3121, and demand climate action now. For starters demand an end to fossil fuel subsidies by supporting the End Polluter Welfare Act.
As the author of "Renewable Energy Won't Change the World": says, "The only way we can reduce energy consumption [and thus emissions] at the scale necessary is via policy and regulation."
MAKE GOOD TROUBLE
I was drawn to this notion expressed by John Lewis who said, "Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul of America." As a civil rights leader and Congressman Lewis was particularly speaking about the state of America, but his counsel is applicable to every unjust situation we are facing in the world today.
DETERMINE WHAT YOU CAN DO:
What are your passionate about?
What are your particular skills?
What are you able to do?
THEN put all those pieces together to make your unique contribution to solutions for the common good.
"Make whatever good trouble you can. Now.*
