A New Year’s Challenge: 30 Days of Climate Action
We need to talk...
I’d like to wish you all a joyous and safe 2022.
Every January, I design some sort of low-waste challenge or write a list of sustainable intentions for the new year. For 2022, I’ve done something a little different.
Today, I’ve launched a new daily newsletter for the month, 30 Days of Climate Action. Each day, registrants will receive one action in their inbox. (Some of you may prefer hearing from me only a few times a month rather than daily, hence a separate newsletter.)
On social media, I’ll often hear questions like, “How do I go beyond zero waste?” or “I’m really worried about climate change but what can I do about it?” or “Can one person make a difference?” I’ve addressed these kinds of questions in the challenge. Some actions push for system change. Some actions focus on individual change. We need both. We need it all.
Today’s action is… Have a Conversation. Climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe, author of the excellent new book, Saving Us, A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World, says the number one thing anyone can do about the changing climate is to talk about it. You can read the full newsletter here.
