Restore Hope and Focus on Climate Change Solutions Now

Looking for support to focus on climate change solutions, I recently attended the Climate Reality Leadership training in Denver. After working on climate change and energy issues for many years I was still waiting for the magical day when U.S. carbon policies would align to solve the global warming crisis. I hoped the training would restore my faith in our nation’s ability to ignite large-scale, effective solutions for climate change. The workshop offered a new arsenal of tools to communicate with the public - at all levels of understanding - about global warming. ...

The Carbon Clock is Ticking and Time is Running Out

As our beautiful blue planet continues to spin deep in space, we humans down here on the ground are grappling with whether or not climate change is within our control. Meanwhile, the carbon clock is ticking away and time is running out. I learned about the Mercator Research Institute carbon clock from the Climate Web, a comprehensive knowledge bank containing pretty much everything you ever wanted to know about climate change and more. The carbon clock remaining CO2 budget offers us one way to visualize climate change and the amount of time we have left to solve ...

All Answers are Here in One Big Climate Web of Knowledge

Information about climate change has increased exponentially over the past 20 years, yet this has not helped to solve the global warming crisis.

A comprehensive resource called the Climate Web is trying to resolve this issue by turning mountains of information into "actionable knowledge."

How to Stop Global Warming: Believing is Seeing

Call me a Pollyanna if you like but I believe each of us can make a difference to stop global warming but we've got to believe, and we'd got to act quickly. It's time to take this matter into our own hands, break free from the naysayers, and get going with the personal business of tackling climate change.   Remember Wayne Dyer? His ideas are still out there circulating, reminding us through his talks and books: You’ll See it When you Believe It. “What you can see is a tiny percentage of what’s available to you.” This idea can be applied to more than ...

Saving the Climate with Community Consensus

What I remember most about meeting Jeff Goebel several years ago is the way he spoke with genuine concern for community, ecology, and conservation– and how all of these can work together effectively for resolving climate issues and adopting change. His message struck a deep cord, emphasizing support for one another in our journey to become whole again – earth, ecology, climate, community, and culture. An ecologist, Goebel has been working with ranchers, farmers, tribes, and villagers across the U.S. and internationally for the past 25 years using a unique approach to ...
