Yep. That happened. 

Not having the number one cause of climate change, water depletion, deforestation species extinction, and ocean dead zones mentioned in the speeches at the climate change march (in San Diego) was a bit like being in the Twilight Zone. 

Switching from an animal-based to a plant-based diet is the single most effective, immediate, and accessible thing we can each do to dramatically begin lowering emissions right NOW. We don’t have to wait for political will or a decades-long shift to clean energy - or crises. We have overpopulated the world with astronomical amounts of food animals, and whether factory farmed or pastured, it’s not sustainable. Please watch the documentary Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret as soon as possible.

…what the right understands, and it’s important to understand, that the climate change denier movement in the United States is entirely a product of the right-wing think tank infrastructure, the groups like Heritage Foundation, Cato Institute, American Enterprise Institute. The Heartland Institute, which people mostly only know in terms of the fact that it hosts these annual conferences of climate change skeptics or deniers, it’s important to know that the Heartland Institute is first and foremost a free market think tank. It’s not a scientific organization. It is—just like the other ones I listed, it exists to push the ideology, the familiar ideology, of deregulation, privatization, cuts to government spending, and sort of triumphant free market, you know, backed with enormous corporate funding, because that’s a very, very profitable ideology.

Don’t say “climate change.”  It’s debatable if it’s persuasive to say “global warming" and "extreme weather.” It’s more persuasive to use this guide from Jeremy Porter:

You never know what sexy things might happen

You’re welcome.

If you’re poor, the only way you’re likely to injure someone is the old traditional way: artisanal violence, we could call it – by hands, by knife, by club, or maybe modern hands-on violence, by gun or by car. But if you’re tremendously wealthy, you can practice industrial-scale violence without any manual labor on your own part. You can, say, build a sweatshop factory that will collapse in Bangladesh and kill more people than any hands-on mass murderer ever did, or you can calculate risk and benefit about putting poisons or unsafe machines into the world, as manufacturers do every day. If you’re the leader of a country, you can declare war and kill by the hundreds of thousands or millions. And the nuclear superpowers – the US and Russia – still hold the option of destroying quite a lot of life on Earth.

People’s Climate March in Nice

Climate change is not a far-off problem. It is happening now and is having very real consequences on people’s lives. Climate change is disrupting national economies, costing us dearly today and even more tomorrow.  But there is a growing recognition that affordable, scalable solutions are available now that will enable us all to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies.

My friends and I got to walk along these fantastic people, whilst we held a banner full of signatures of people who supported the cause.
