The group of mostly teenagers in oregon alleged in a 2015 complaint that government policies have exacerbated global warming in violation of their rights -- and those of future generations -- under the u.s. constitution.
they claim that for more than 50 years, the office of the president and eight federal agencies promoted regulations to support the u.s. energy industry’s proliferation of fossil fuels, accounting for a quarter of the world’s carbon emissions. they asked the court to force the government to formulate a formal plan to change course. #climatejustice
Today is a global recycling day. lately there's been a lot of talk about recycling, and whether it is the advert l answer any longer. now that china stopped taking our recycling where will it all go? i think it just woke us to a realisation. recycling is not an answer to our problems, it is a short term solution, and now we are reminded that we need to redesign our products and make our own infra structures for waste. yes, we should still keep recycling, but reducing waste is the number 1 priority. when recycling, find out where your recycling is actually going, is it really recycled in your country or waiting somewhere to be dumbed on another country that will recycle our trash.

We visited the point au chien tribe today to learn about their adaptations to climate change and land loss. this is where kids in the tribe went to school before louisiana schools were integrated. it’s outside the new flood gates, so the tribe is trying to move it inside before hurricane season. #odotcomm18
On april 13 and 14, first parish in lexington is presenting (and i'm singing in) paul winter's "missa gaia, a mass for the earth," with our adult and children's choirs, the vermont dance collective, and a large world music ensemble. this is one of the most ambitious productions we've ever put on at first parish, with dozens of performers, dance, drama, pageantry, puppetry, costumes, sets, lighting, and fantastic music. there will be pre-concert drumming before the show and a reception and earth fair (featuring local environmental groups) after. it will be a great time. i invite you to come see missa gaia and i hope you'll spread the word to anyone you know who might enjoy it. link in my bio.
