The science is clear – human-caused global warming is happening and its impacts are already being felt. The good news is that we can avoid catastrophic impacts AND strengthen the economy.
My current efforts focus on:
- Working with businesses to help them adopt sustainable, energy-efficient practices
- Enacting a national Carbon Fee and Dividend through Citizens’ Climate Lobby
- Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
- Promoting Meatless Mondays
- Learning More
- Reaching others through my writing.
Carbon Fee and Dividend and Citizens’ Climate Lobby
Climate scientists and economists alike say a national carbon fee is the best first step to reducing the likelihood of catastrophic climate change from global warming. Many conservatives and liberals, even libertarians agree.
ccl’s carbon fee proposal would reduce greenhouse gas emission 52% below 1990 levels while growing the economy and saving lives.
Visit ccl’s website. It has wealth of clear, concise information understandable by a broad range of audiences ranging from children to economists to politicians to climate scientists.
Reducing Your Carbon Footprint
See these tips for reducing your carbon footprint – and saving $.
One of the most effective ways to reduce greenhouse gasses is to reduce consumption of meat. Even a modest reduction in meat consumption has a significant impact.
A terrific website that explains all the good reasons to go meatless just one day a week is Meatless Mondays.
Some Meatless Monday practitioners you might know: Oprah Winfrey, Avatar and Titanic director James Cameron, Paul McCartney, Media Mogul Russell Simmons, Sir Richard Branson, Chef Mario Batali, Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa – and many others.
