Taking Action

In talking with those committed to climate change, it is clear that this is not a philosophical or scientific discussion.  We must take action–early and often.  There is a huge spectrum of things that can be done, ranging from small household decisions about energy consumption to political activism.

A sister site and organization is Elders Climate Action.  They have published a useful handout of ways an individual can help contribute to fighting climate change.  Here is a link to their handout, What can One Person Do?

Below are some of the key organizations on the front lines of addressing climate change/global warming. These links will lead you to information about what you can do to help.

Also, please join or donate to the above organizations.

I do not think the measure of a civilization is how tall its buildings of concrete are, but rather how well its people have learned to relate to their environment and fellow man.
