Earth Day 2017 is here! Check out teaching events and marches near you… this year there is extra attention to the critically important role science plays in a rational society, with teach-ins on environmental and climate literacy.
Saturday, April 22, “Use Your Voice,” your Third Superpower, to advocate for protecting science – in particular in the United States given unfortunate events at the Federal level… participate in a March for Science near you.
Paraphrasing Pope Francis, who pointed out in his 2015 Encyclical, On the Care of our Common Home: “There is no longer a conflict between faith and science, because at any given time science is the best mankind knows as to how stuff works.”

Not sure where to start saving the planet (civilization, really)? Our Thesis Statement is: “Start by deeply knowing your personal Superpowers: ”
1) To save the planet, Change Yourself First;
3) Use Your Voice and take advocacy seriously! Never miss a chance to vote, and never ever stop influencing your government and all businesses locally, at the state level, and at the national level. It’s on you to lead the way with global warming solutions, (especially the high-payoff proposal of fully-refundable carbon tax).
And in all cases and at all times, cast aside the learned-helplessness that infects so much of modern life… the time is now for climate change solutions.
