Hey guys happy Sunday! By now you probably know that every Sunday I donate my social media to my @YearsofLiving team to talk about carbon pricing! Take a second to read this post! Just 5 minutes could help you make THE DIFFERENCE the world needs. This week's post is by Allyson Masunaga Goto, a student campaigner who attends Brown University and is part of the campaign to put a price on carbon in Rhode Island. "Growing up in Colorado an appreciation for nature is something that becomes inherent to your very being. It is a feeling hard to explain, but like the blood that runs through your veins: it is always there, and it continues to inspire me. This feeling gives me the energy to fight for climate change solutions despite how difficult the road may seem. When I think about the ways the environment intertwines within the fabric of our global issues and is often the basis of issues concerning social justice, it is apparent that climate change is the greatest threat we have ever faced and something we can no longer ignore.
For me, putting a pricing on carbon pollution, is one of the most basic steps we need to take to #ActOnClimate.
This semester I have had the privilege to work on carbon pricing legislation in Rhode Island with the @EnergizeRI coalition. We are helping to cultivate a regional movement of people asking their legislators to #PutAPriceOnIt and momentum is growing. As young people we have the power to demand change and it is time that we do! We will join other citizens at the RI State Capitol on April 25th for ECRI Lobby Day, advocating for the Energize RI Act that puts a fee on fossil fuels and returns the revenue to the people and businesses of RI. Additionally, we are leading the charge in the People’s Climate Mobilization in RI on April 29th also at the RI State Capitol."

The #PeoplesClimate march is just days away! Come march with tens of thousands of your friends this Saturday, April 29, in Washington, DC, or at one of the many sister marches around the US.

It's easy to lose hope, especially when the people in power, are so negligent with our planet and ludicrously deny our only common threat.

However, every now and then somebody comes along and gives you back your hope. Elon Musk is one of those people, imagine a world with more of these types of people?
I think it's happening, as our younger generations whom grow up understanding the bigger picture are now coming of age, and taking up positions of power and slowly pushing out the older generations, the dinosaurs, the deniers... I'm hopeful that soon enough the time will be at an end for the Trump types and the Elon Musks of this world will finally be able to guide us into a healthier, more sustainable future.
Just thinking out loud really.

Who else gets annoyed from the supermarket stickers? #compostproblems .

A male Sumatran orangutan swings through the canopy of the #leuserecosystem. Oblivious to the destruction of #conflictpalmoil or is he. How aware are our closest human relatives? I have pondered this many times, let me know your thoughts on this. Learn more about this important ecosystem and JOIN & SHARE the movement. https://www.lovetheleuser.org

Part 1 - Tofu fabric.
Tofu is derived from soya. It's made by curdling fresh soya milk, pressing it into a solid block and then cooling it. Tofu is a great source of protein, iron and calcium.

"Tread lightly" - Wise words from the man himself @david_attenborough πŸ™πŸΌ Almost half of #london is made up of green and blue spaces; rich oases for ourselves and 13,000 other species. Let's keep them that way.

The sunlight claps the earth, and the moonbeams kiss the sea: what are all these kissings worth, if thou kiss not me?

"With the Trump Administration doing everything in its power to undo progress on climate change, the time has come to TAKE TO THE STREETS. Join us in Washington on April 29th, at the PEOPLES CLIMATE MARCH, where we'll send the loudest message possible that climate change can't be ignored.
To change everything, we need everyone. (Oh, and this plays way better with the sound on ... so put on those headphones!)" @yearsofliving @350org

Here is another shot of me exploring Colorado National Monument in 2014. Awesome place you must see. It's a National Monument and while it's not directly affected by Trump's executive order it could be a slippery slide to seek of places like this. So stand up for #monumentsforall #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #publiclands #keepitpublic #colorado #coloradogram #sierraoutside #actonclimate #hiking #backpacking #grandjunction

Check out this video by David Wolfe showing how far a little innovation can go.

We now live in such an unnatural way, that we greatly hinder the environment with just about everything we do.
We humans have been blessed with intelligence that is widely regarded as the highest on this planet. With that gift, we have a responsibility to help protect the natural world and our fellow coinhabitants.
Well done to the innovative thinkers behind these designs.

#trump signed an executive order this morning ordering a review of the Antiquities Act. This could lead to repeal of protections for national monuments and bring new opportunities for oil and mining companies.β €
Now is not the time to throw our hands up in despair, now is the time to #act to #fight to wage war on this administrations short sighted and heartbreaking actions. Respect the #earth dig deep for the heart of the warrior that lives in all of us. This news shakes something in my bones. It calls to something ancient and vestigial and long dormant. It awakens something in me that wails like a mother losing a child. I am devastated and I am enraged. I urge you to conjure all the fury and fight within your bones and stop this monstrosity at once. The power is with the people. Make your voice heard and protect this beautiful earth from the rape of a dirty administration. πŸ’”

"This Worm Might Be Able To Solve Our Plastic Problem" (article doing the rounds on a lot of news sites - see yesterdays post). How about *HUMANS are *DEFINITELY Able To Solve *THEIR OWN Plastic Problem
.
Let's acknowledge that the root of the problem is our obsession with plastic. Time to get on with it! Let's not waste time figuring out how we can subjugate another species to start cleaning up after us - just start saying NO to plastic!!
