We're excited to be co-sponsoring this event with Toward Zero Waste and Eno River Unitarian Fellowship Earth Justice Group.
Am sharing a couple of videos with you that are meaningful for me and that I thought might be of interest to you.
First, "Building Solidarity Across Race and Class" in the context of addressing the climate and ecological crises. Timely I think given discussion of things like "climate justice," "just transition," and issues of equity and justice in general.
Second, "Ask a Scientist," up-to-date scientific perspectives on climate change, specifically considering various feedback loops and tipping points. I love the discussion about positive actions in relation to creating positive feedback loops that reverse the trends in climate. Seems appropriate in relation to the part in the Drawdown Review on accelerators.
Do you know someone who would like to know about the possibility of reversing global warming and the important role they can play in making this happen? Then please invite them to come to our Introduction to Drawdown Zoom call this Saturday from 10:00 to 11:30. Personally, I find that one of the best ways for me to cope with our uncertain times is to dive in to work on Drawdown projects, many of which can at least be started from home.
From fear and despair to hope and action!
