A plea to the mayors at #COP21: Commit to moving to #go100percent renewable energy. Do not wait another day.

I urge the CA Assembly to vote 'YES' on @kdeleon's #SB100 bill because I'm 100% in for a 100% clean electricity future! #Go100Percent

People who care about clean air and water must come together now to support increasing our country's use of renewable energy. Now is the time to create a just transition away from fossil fuel consumption to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. #RenewableEnergy #Go100Percent

Would love for y'all to read this if you have a few minutes (and aren't bored in the first 30 seconds). Some thoughts & stats on recent events in Texasโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒ…
"Architecture with any authenticity represents resistance. Resistance is a good thing"- Thom Mayne, Morphosis Architects โœ๏ธ๐Ÿก. 3.5 hours north of Houston by car, Dallas TX has been bright, balmy and strangely quiet this week. The sunsets have been calm and brilliant, with just enough scattered mist & clouds to keep the air cool. I've driven my 24 MPG car approximately 50 miles a day since the hurricane, down a lawless stretch of rolling highway known as the Dallas North Tollroad. I would get 29 MPG's, but driving 90 mph is too much fun. It helps me let the stress out after I'm done at my day job.

3.5 hours South of Dallas, Houston TX has experienced an unprecedented natural disaster, constituting the most extreme rain event in US History. Climate scientists tell us there is a 1-in-1000 year chance of a flood event like this occurring in Houston in a given year ("a 1,000 year flood"), which may not seem so alarming... except that it is also the third *500* year flood in 3 years. 2 Five-Hundred Year Floods and 1 One-Thousand Year flood in 3 years. Maybe some of you math geeks out there can work on the combined likelihood statistics there. โž•If you find yourself uncertain about, as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change refers to it, the "unequivocal" evidence for the warming of our planet, and, as NASA sites-- the 95%+ probability that the current warming trends are the result of human activity since the mid-20th century and proceeding at a rate that is unprecedented over decades to millennia, I'd encourage you to check out the link in my bio... where NASA (who knows a thing or two about our planet) outlines the Evidence, Causes, Effects, Scientific Consensus and Vital Signs. If you're skeptical that global warming had much to do with the severity of the disaster continuing to unfold in Houston, TX... you're right to be. But this disaster gives us a picture of what we can expect if the climate CONTINUES to warm, as scientific consensus has predicted it WILL. (Post continued on next image)

Great learning about #sustainability from @BTGroup's @n1dunne & what we can all do to #go100percent

๐ŸŽถ Bye bye oil, bye bye dirty coal, hello #renewables... I think I'm gonna try! ๐ŸŽถ #tbt #actonclimate #go100percent #nokxl @350org @sunrisemvmt

We've been powering our UK stores with renewable energy since 2012. Make your power count #go100percent > @_collectively

With the realities of last week setting in, it was refreshing to spend the evening with like minded people sharing their insight on how to care for Mama Earth ๐ŸŒ #StLouisRenewableEnergySummit #Go100Percent


congratulations, Proterra! the electric bus manufacturer just broke the world record for the longest distance ever traveled by an EV on a single charge. tap the link in bio to read more ๐Ÿ˜ #gogreen #thefutureiselectric

๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ‘ฃ002: How can we make travel a more sustainable human activity? Here are 5 easy steps:

1. Avoid the plane & take the train! ๐Ÿš† go by โ€œslow travelโ€ and spend more time in fewer places. This way you will immerse yourself deeper into the culture and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time.

2. Say no to plastic! โ™ป๏ธjust consider "The Great Pacific Garbage Patch" before buying endless amounts of plastic bottles. Be a part of the solution by opting for locally purified water in recyclable glass bottles.

3. Ask your tour operators! ๐Ÿ“š things to consider being a) whether the tour company consider the wildlife or cultural heritage of the area b) whether the tour company use local tour guides c) do the tour company have any environmentally friendly practices?

4. Support the local economy! ๐Ÿ’ถ buying from locally produced stores helps to promote small businesses, whilst at the same time have a positive impact on the economy of the country at large.

5. Never buy wildlife products! ๐Ÿผ needless to say that when you buy products made from animals you are at risk of inadvertently supporting those industries which put endangered species at risk.

Say hello to our new office plant: The Peace Lily ๐Ÿƒ While most plants absorb CO2 and release O2, peace lilies actually absorb airborne pollutants, thus cleaning the air in a room. Welcome to the family, little guy ๐ŸŒฟ

The power of being a consumer is that you can change so much by simply stopping to buy something or switch from one product to another. Together we, the consumers, have an enormous amount of power in our hands. This week will be about eating less meat and why that has such great impact on decreasing the greenhouse effect. You don't have to completely stop eating meat immediately, but as a first step you can cut down on it or replace red meat with chicken for instance.

I urge the CA Assembly to vote 'YES' on @kdeleon's #SB100 bill because I'm 100% in for a 100% clean electricity future! #Go100Percent

I will be featuring someone new every month and sharing what sustainability means to them.
Pictured here is Chad Marvin in southwestern Wisconsin, from his most recent job with the Black Earth Institute. He was doing #invasivespecies removal in the prairie behind him all summer, among other things.
He has his BA in Environmental Humanities from #stonybrookuniversity and is going to be serving as an agroforestry volunteer in Guinea while in the #peacecorps
Me-"Chad, what does sustainability mean to you?"
Chad-"Sustainability to me has a lot to do with empathy and recognizing the way in which the world is interconnected. Being conscious of the current state of the world, and asking yourself what you can do to influence change for the greater good. Whether it's addressing your diet or consumption habits. Or pursuing a career in the environmental field, I feel we all have a duty to help assure that the world that we were all born into remains a healthy place for future life. Presently, I would say the health of the earth is in a negative state. So sustainability in a modern context means being regenerative. Creating solutions that regrow the planet's health, such as permaculture, renewable energy systems, and economic policy that rewards activity which benefits our environment to name a few. It also means planting seeds of change through our attitudes. Dropping judgements, and false luxuries that often hold us back from making needed change, and promoting a spirit of togetherness, of resiliency, of now is the time to act, and we can do it. Sustainability is practicality. We look at how things currently are, and say: these are the things that we need to do to continue living. To create luxuries which can last, and be enjoyed by all forms of life. Sustainability is our key to a brighter tomorrow, if we will it."
Thank you for sharing Chad. Have you thought lately what sustainability means to you?

One of our #SolutionsFund grant winners is reaching out to schools in Uganda and immersing the students and community in workshops and lectures in an effort to overturn stigma regarding Sickle Cell Disease. These students are engaging in a role-playing workshop (pictured). With success, community members with Sickle Cell can return to school, society, and participate in the economy without shame! Thanks USCRF! #LeaveNoOneBehind #SDGs #Awareness #SickleCell #sicklecellawareness #Go100percent #Humanitarianism
