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.

Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
