Effective Individual Actions

  • Start talking with your family and friends about how you feel about the environmental catastrophe we are in, and then start talking with co-workers and the public. Encourage them to start conversations with their family and friends.
  • Vote for a bold candidate who is clearly a champion for a livable planet – who has an aggressive plan for stopping the digging up and burning of fossil fuels, and speeding up the transition to clean renewable energy.
  • Become part of a massive organized global movement.

“The answer to the question ‘What can I, as an individual, do to stop climate change?’ is:  nothing. You can’t do anything.  In fact, the very idea that we, as atomized individuals, even lots of atomized individuals, could play a significant part in stabilizing the planet’s climate system or changing the global economy is objectively nuts.  We can only meet this tremendous challenge together, as part of a massive and organized global movement.”  Advice for the Next Generation of Climate Activists, Naomi Klein, 9/19/19
