I feel helpless. And I can’t quiet the screaming inside my head. This is climate change! Now will you listen??? This is climate change!
Just when I thought we were making tracks. Every time I stretch, I discover there’s more stretch to go. It’s one thing to swallow my pride and listen attentively to people I don’t expect to agree with.
Driving through Beverly Hills yesterday, a large metal sculpture on the median strip caught my eye. From several blocks away, it looked to be a perfect red circle mounted against a white backdrop.
The whole world of climate change is much too big for any one person to wrap their arms around. So I decided to break it down; just focus on one thing at a time.
It was the people part that captivated my attention. I wanted to know the answers to things like: we’re in this together—why are we fighting, or how did this become a partisan issue, or how can we talk so people will listen? As I got pulled into the work, I realized that the people part couldn’t be separated from the excess CO2 causing the planet to heat up.
