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.

This we know. The Earth does not belong to us; we belong to the Earth. All things are connected, like the blood that unites one family. Whatever befalls the Earth, befalls the children of the Earth. We do not weave the web of life; we are only a strand of it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
