“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.” Remember, Election Day is November 6th. I voted in California for the first time. I’m proud to have my little voice be a part of a chorus of voices voting for what they believe. #lorax#midtermelections
Almost a week ago IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) published a stark report that highlighted the devastation that will occur if the world warms by 2C. Just a glimpse of what can come is: 99% of coral reefs will disappear, hundreds of millions of humans will experience frequent heatwaves and the Arctic will observe summers with no sea ice.
Yet, it does not have to be all doom UNLESS we care. Lorax is my all time favorite children’s book because it captures the reality, but asks not to despair but act for better.
This is the time to act, to cut down on your meat consumption, to travel maybe a bit less, to walk/bike/use public transportation when you can and avoid everything made from petrochemicals and say goodbye to coal. (there is no such thing as #cleancoal . it is a giant lie!)
