“The belief that this enormous, existential problem could have been fixed if all of us had just tweaked our consumptive habits is not only preposterous; it’s dangerous. It turns environmentalism into an individual choice defined as sin or virtue, convicting those who don’t or can’t uphold these ethics.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is from a recent article by @mary.heglar in @voxdotcom called “I work in the environmental movement. I don’t care if you recycle” is breathing life back into my eco weary bones 💪. I have been struggling a lot recently with the unequal representation in the environmental community and frustration over the level of privilege someone needs to do a lot of the typical “eco-friendly” behaviors we all know about. Not to mention my firm belief the personal efforts to cut emissions is too little too late (not to down personal efforts- just to say we gotta work on a global/ policy level too 😘). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mary points out that we gotta target big oil and can’t blame individuals for choices in a society 75% fueled by fossil fuels. “If we want to function in society, we have no choice but to participate in that system. To blame us for that is to shame us for our very existence.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are feeling an inkling of environmental guilt or feel concerned that it stops others from engaging the fight against climate change, PLEASE check out her article! Right now it is linked in @mary.heglar bio and has made my day 💚. And if you want to make a quick yet effective step in cutting emissions nationwide, head over to the link in @citizensclimate bio and write your reps about the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act 🙌. . . . . . #equalrepresentation #climateaction #climatechange #ecowarrier #thereisnoplanetb #protecttheplanet #stopclimatechange #climatestrike #greenchicago #zerowastechicago #goingzerowaste #zerowasteliving #ecofriendly #environmentalsustainability #bigoil #carbonfeeanddividend #citizensclimatelobby

Had a good meeting with local members of @citizensclimate yesterday. They’ve been strong supporters of the bipartisan legislation I’ve worked on to address climate change, including the Challenges and Prizes for Climate Act (H.R.3100) I introduced last week. #citizensclimatelobby #climatechange

Photo in the great outdoors by my friend @serideyoung who is highly involved with @citizensclimate 🌳 Today, members are in DC speaking to Representatives to discuss ways to slow and perhaps eliminate global warming. . . . . If you haven’t read the multiple studies on global warming...if we warm 2 degrees Celsius, it will mean flooding, famine, fires, drought, which means it will influence economies, agriculture, infrastructure, EVERYTHING. It will threaten the existence of entire countries. And the lives of your children. . . . Don’t be a part of the bystander affect- be a part of CHANGE. Get on Twitter and let your Representative know that Citizens Climate HAS CREATED legislation to save the planet. It was rejected in the House in January. Tweet, write, call, do whatever you can. So much hangs in the balance 🌏 . . . #climatechange #stopglobalwarming #citizensclimatelobby #recycle #makechange #callyourreps #savetheearth #carbon #carbonfootprint #zerocarbonfootprint

Hi fellow citizens of planet Earth, it’s lobby day! Today volunteers from @citizensclimate are at the capitol in DC meeting with their representatives to talk about a solution for climate change. For those of us not in DC, a great and easy way to participate is to tweet your own member of Congress. There’s a link in my profile that shows you exactly how. Take a couple minutes and make your voice heard. If you don’t have time to do it today- you can totally do it tomorrow! Anytime is a good time to speak up for Mother Earth 🌎💕

This week SBA’s President and Secretary had the amazing opportunity to attend Citizen Climate Lobby’s policy camp in Washington DC! Holly was on the international track learning about how to negotiate as a representative for Canada and Miranda took on the role as a representative for fossil fuel workers when negotiating a just transition on the domestic side. This was a wonderful, eye opening experience for both of them and they are both very grateful for being able to attend! They wish all their new friends luck as they take on the lobbying days in Washington D.C. at the beginning of next week. If you have any questions about how to get involved or you are interested in possibly attending camp or lobbying next year send us a DM! Thank you @citizensclimate for all the hard work you put into this experience- we are so grateful for the opportunity! #citizensclimatelobby #climatechange #publicpolicy

The day is finally here! Tonight I leave to Washington D.C. to represent Las Vegas with 3 others and meet with our legislators to talk with them about @citizensclimate ’s Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. Myself and hundreds of volunteers across the country are advocating for this bill because it matches the scale of pollution we are facing, and provides the most effective, stable bipartisan solution 🌍 The fact is, we can not continue to do nothing - this is to making sure that doesn’t happen 💪🏼 . During this trip I will share as much info as possible! Shirt orders are still able to be fulfilled, but may take a little longer 💙 . Photo by: @citizensclimate

With the CCL Washington conference in June coming up this weekend we can look back on the great success of the CCL third coast regional conference held in Houston. The turnout of students was amazing! There was a great panel discussion about what teens were doing in their communities against the climate crisis and gave a chance for teens to connect and learn more about what they are able to do. • • • #priceonpollution #climatechange #climateaction #citizensclimatelobby #teenactivists #cclteens

Met with the Citizens Climate Lobby yesterday, working on getting endorsements from local brewers for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. But we ended up getting to take the MSU telescope for a spin after, so that was cool lol • • • • #space #telescope #volunteer #volunteering #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #citizensclimatelobby #artist #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #artistic #art #artists #writer #write #writersofinstagram #bloggers #blogger #millenials
