What Can One Person Do?
30 Days of Climate Action and Inspiration
What stories do you tell yourself about global warming?
I mentioned a few days ago that with great problems come gret opportunities.
There has been tremendous press attention to climate lately. Why? Because there is a LOT is going on around the world when it comes to climate. After thirty years of ignoring the issue, the mainstream press is finally reporting the story of Climate.
Unfortunately, the stories are crisis-driven--global-warming has exacerbated fires, tornados, floods and hurricanes and all of these make good video. Sometimes they story will be celebrity-led actions.
Regardless, the mainstream media will be most likely report doom and gloom as they often do. Many people hear these news stories and believe that the problem is too big and too scary and too complicated. They believe that they cannot make a difference.
It is time to change that story to one that is truer and more empowering.
Consider this an opportunity to reframe the story.
