Busy? Here’s a Fast Way to Stay Informed About All Things Climate Change

A friend found this awesome weekly summary of the world’s climate news, The Weekly Climate Review from the MacArthur Foundation.

You can quickly sign up to receive it via email once a week.

I did this, and find it an excellent way to feel well-informed while still only spending a few minutes reading.

The Weekly Climate Summary is very concise, and pleasantly complete!

Not sure how to start saving the planet (civilization, really)…  Start by remembering Al Gore’s 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.
