To Save the Planet, Use Your Voice: Like Paul McCartney, in His Film about Protecting Our Fragile Planet

There aren’t many with as fine a voice as Paul McCartney’s.

He’s using it to take us to task for our weakness at fighting climate change, in this video, made with his family.

The short film is an absolutely lovely piece of work, like much that McCartney has created.

He’s also strong in advocating, as a longtime vegetarian, for a meat free diet…  a big tool in humanity’s fight against the emerging climate crisis.

How does that work?  A meat-free or meat-once-in-awhile diet is a very strong global warming solution, ranking fourth of the 100 most-effective climate wins in Project Drawdown’s 2017 research study.

The reason:  beef production creates carbon pollution at shockingly high levels.

Not sure how to start saving the planet (civilization, really)…  Start by remembering the saying: “Hope is a renewable resource.”  Keep your morale up.  

Then, our immediate practical first step becomes “Deeply know our personal Superpowers,” those skills over which we all have 100% control: 

1) To save the planet, CHANGE OURSELVES FIRST;

2) To save the planet, INVEST OUR WORKING LIVES;

3) To save the planet, USE OUR VOICES and take advocacy seriously in all its many flavors: Never miss a vote and never stop influencing your government.  Influence the vast business world by voting with your buying power… business listens when you speak its language.  Set a solid example in your personal life.  Tell friends what we must do.  Finally, have a carefully-chosen annual donor program.  All of these are ways you can use your voice.

No one can take your personal power away.  Stay focussed on the list of substantive global warming solutions.  

And at all times, cast aside the “learned-helplessness” that infects so much of modern life… the time is now for action.  

Never give up.
