We have more power than we think

By now, most of you have heard the news about the Special IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report that came out Monday (August 9); it’s been dubbed a “code red for humanity.” Tempting as it is to delve into the report's takeaways, I'd like to discuss how we might wrap our heads around its daunting prognosis for the planet, instead.

3 Degrees & Counting

As things heat up—literally—from coast to coast, shattering high-temperature records day after day, one report by the National Observer’s Chris Hatch stood out to me. In his Carbon Zero e-newsletter, he wrote: “What’s truly ‘unfathomable’ for most is that this will be one of the coldest summers of the rest of our lives. Very possibly of all human lives. These are the cool old days.”

Now you can paint a room with climate change—Seriously!

As COVID-19 marches on in the Atlantic region, and around the world, so too does the climate crisis. The irony, of course, is that these two tragedies are very much interrelated. But we’ll save that for another day.  Our Atlantic Chapter has some great stuff planned in the coming weeks.
