Are you alarmed by the reports of global warming, of sea levels rising, of islands disappearing, of an island of plastic floating in the ocean, of the predictions that, at the current rate, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish in just a few short decades?
Did you know that:
* We already have our first climate refugees (from Louisiana).
* On sunny days during high tides, fish and seawater flood the streets in Miami.
* The mighty Colorado River has dried up 50 miles short of the ocean?
* 62% of the U.S. electric grid is still powered with fossil fuels?
Global warming isn't something we have to worry about tomorrow. It's here now.
What can you do?
There are quite a lot of things that everyday folks can do to breathe cleaner air, preserve their fresh water, reduce their plastic usage and promote a healthy planet. I was so impressed with the 4-9 year olds at Damers First School in Poundbury, England, and their outstanding teacher Edd Moore, that I proclaimed them to be England's most powerful green lobby, on my ThriveGlobal blog. (See the picture of Queen Elizabeth visiting with the children below.) The Damers School students are showing how bad habits can be replaced overnight, so that each one of us can "be the change we wish to see."
On Wednesday, April 3, 2019, at noon ET (9 am PT), I will interview Edd Moore and a few of the Damers School children for their tips on how we as individuals can inspire our town, county and even country to eliminate plastic, reduce our fossil fuel usage and eat healthier.
The following day, on Thursday April 4, 2019 at noon ET, Governor Bill Ritter, Colorado’s 41st governor and a director at the Colorado State University Center for a New Energy Economy, will enlighten us on technological developments in clean energy and steps each one of us can take toward a fossil-free future.
