This is a direct quote from Scott Pruitt, the HEAD of the EPA, yaknow, THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY. There is literally a CENTURY’S worth of established research supporting what Pruitt is denying.
Politics aside, can we all agree that Pruitt is not fit to serve and should be removed IMMEDIATELY?
Imagine a third of the world becoming deserts. If that doesn’t bother you because you live in the desert, imagine the same scenario making your desert so dangerous you’ll just die if you stay there. Sounds like conditions on a different planet altogether right? Well, it’s the projected near-future for our very own planet Earth, and although it wouldn’t quite yet be the end of the world, the changes made would be drastic, horrendous and inhibiting for all flora and fauna across the globe, not just the humans causing the accelerated damage.
Cause a stir in your local area. Plant a seed of discontent with all of this so it will grow outward and bring change, because big powerful policy makers are ignoring our safe word and laughing about it all the way to the bank, but this joke isn’t funny.
Climate change is speeding up melting of the Antarctic ice sheet, according to a new study published in the journal Nature. Melting has tripled in the last decade, and it’s causing sea levels to rise faster now than any time in the past 25 years. Antarctica lost three trillion tons of ice between 1992 and 2017. The study says global warming is to blame.

Translation: 1. Scientists were about to present their findings on the reality of Climate Change 2. The government shut it down before they could say a word.
Solarpunks, the time to act is ASAP. Be optimistic, be non-violent, be helpful, not hurtful, but be ACTIVE. You don’t have to build a solar panel array to save the world, you can write a solarpunk story, a solarpunk essay, or even just tell someone about the movement.
Remember, people would rather think about climate change in a *fun* way than a *serious* way. Why do you think there are toy’s at the doctor’s office? Kids aren’t creeped out when they’re having fun. Same thing applies here… don’t freak people out with words like “Climate Change” and “Global Warming” and “Save the Planet”—just say “Solarpunk” and “Story” and “Game” and “Activities”—make it fantastic and whimsical, because anything serious will just be shut down by the government.
Animal agriculture is the leading cause of destruction of the Amazon rainforest, global deforestation, global greenhouse gases, ocean dead zones, species extinction, fresh water scarcity and waste, resource depletion, and soil degradation. Going vegan is arguably the most effective and impactful action every individual can do to help the environment. Make everyday Earth Day. Watch the eye-opening documentary Cowspiracy to learn more!

Solarpunks, Let’s make our new year’s resolution to make 2018′s graph have that green line go way up, and for all the other lines to go up too!
Also, the map shows where each term is more popular than the others. There are SO MANY PEOPLE who are concerned about the future of this planet, and Solarpunks are on the front lines of changing the thinking that will lead to the future they will not be scared to live in! As a Solarpunk, you ARE important to the world. The Solarpunk seed has been planted—2018 is the year the graph will rise above “relatively 0″!
Did you know that animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than all transportation combined? And that one hamburger requires as much water as 32 showers? We didn’t either before watching Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret! Be sure to watch it in spirit of Earth Day tomorrow!

Your “personal choice” to eat innocent animals is destroying us all!
@Regrann from @activistvegan - This is footage obtained by Mark Devries, director of the documentary “Speciesism: The Movie.” He uses spy drones to expose the environmental devastation of factory farming in the United States.
Factory farms are typically located in remote rural areas for a reason. The untreated waste produced by these industrial feedlots contaminates groundwater and can be detected for hundreds of miles. This system is completely and entirely unsustainable.
“Not my doing”, some will say. “I only consume organic grass fed beef and dairy.” If this is you, you should know that you are paying for even MORE greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, habitat loss, desertification, and wildlife extinction.
Why? Grass fed cows require more time, water/grass, land etc. to provide milk and reach market weight.
Watch @Cowspiracy on Netflix/Youttube to learn more.
Video cred to @choose_vegan and @mercyforanimals.
Animal agriculture is a leading cause of environmental degradation, pollution, and climate change. Going vegan is an effective way we can affect positive change for the planet and all its inhabitants. Let’s empower ourselves through our daily actions.
