gratitude-a-thon day 393: Climate Change: The Ted Talk (Thanks, Mindy Lubber, YOU ROCK STAR)

Unknown
Um, it’s getting warm in here (and guess what, it’s not a hot flash).

There are people who don’t believe that climate change is real (Ann Coulter is probably one of them). But my friend Mindy Lubber, President of Ceres, a non-profit who is working to get investor and business leaders to use sustainable strategies and practices in an effort to make sure climate change will not advance to the point of not only ruining our economy, but also the planet, has the terrifying statistics that tell the story, the stories that illustrate the problem, and the future predicitions that will doom us if we don’t make some changes, like stat. This woman lives and breathes this stuff, and if she says there’s reason to take action NOW, she doesn’t mean right after you finish binge watching Scandal.

If you don’t know a lot about climate change (and I’m not going to pretend to be any sort of Einstein on the topic, but I’m learning–better late than never), or think it’s actually media hype (I’d say there isn’t enough impactful coverage of this topic), or you love your kids and want them to have a planet when they grow up, PLEASE WATCH MINDY’S TED TALK, ADAPT & THRIVE, and then sit down with yourself and think about what you can do. And then forward this talk to everybody you know and talk to them about what they can do.

Gratitude to the brilliant Mindy Lubber, who makes this, the challenge of our time. her life’s work. But, guys, this is real, and she can’t do it alone.
