11. It's a crisis and we need to act NOW

As our leaders are not actively engaged in addressing this, it's up to the rest of us to goad them to action.

Thanks for posting this HS! This reply is directed to all who are reading this thread!

I recommend getting involved in whatever way you can -- here are some links for people to consider:

http://citizensclimatelobby.org/ -- they are promoting a Carbon and Fee dividend that, if enacted, would take us quickly to a spot where we can start addressing the many many other issues involved in this. More info on CF&D here: http://citizensclimatelobby.org/carbon-fee-and-dividend/ -- I am involved in my local chapter in a very RED area. We are making some headway -- as crazy as that sounds.


https://www.climaterealityproject.org/ -- if you are able to make presentations, like to persuade people, to inform people, they have a presentation you can be trained to give in your community. I do this -- it helps. There are still people for which this is news as our media sucks.


http://350.org/ -- they are very action focused. If you like to work with others in your community on drawing physical attention to this crisis -- this is your group. I am also involved with this group but not as much as the first two listed above.


The idea here is -- GET INVOLVED! There is no time for despair or wringing of hands. It's all hands on deck. You are needed.

As Naomi Klein has stated, “To change everything we need everyone”

We need you to be involved in this -- not just reading about it.
