It’s hard for me to say, “Let’s celebrate!” because the planetary situation is so desperate. Climate change continues unabated. If you have to drive on any weekday afternoon at rush hour, you will see that the COVID-19 crisis has done little to remediate our country’s crushingly heavy carbon footprint.
If you are wondering what to do, I have a few suggestions:
- Make lifestyle changes.
- Educate yourself.
- Push all levels of government for meaningful action and policy changes.
- Give to the many organizations who are fighting the good fight.
I want to recommend one book in particular, which is endorsed by one of the early volunteers and founders behind Giving Map.
We have some time. Future generations will not have that luxury. Let’s take what we have and make it count.
