Good morning people. I Hope your weekend was fantastic. Let’s dive in. If you’re a business person online I want to ask you something. Why do you not have prices of your products on your page??????? Send a dm? Shey you’re ok like this? Do you know the percentage of potential customers you loose just because of that phrase? Listen to me if you please. Majority of online shoppers do not have that time. If you’re lucky enough and you still get people that dm you then good for you . You’re lucky your customers are going an extra mile. But would you take that chance? What if they don’t? Guys. It’s a jungle out there. The least you can do for your business is put a price tag on it. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️ Follow @bc.pro • • • #putapriceonit #entrepreneurship #customerexperience #mondaymotivation #mondaymorning #thinkaboutit #motivated #hustlemindset #peacehyde #businesswoman #smartbusiness #ideasthatwork #entrepreneurlife #motivationalvideos #videos #millionairemindset #youngbusiness #blackbusinesswomen #naijabrandchick #hustlermagazine #abujabusiness #letsdiscuss

It’s your life, your goals, your ambitions, and therefore your task. You are a product of your environment, so decide wisely what kind of factory you want to be built in.

We had a nice bike ride to the CCL Indianapolis monthly meeting and vegetarian potluck this evening! At CCL we’re focused on advocating for national policies to address climate change, specifically the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. But we’re also aware of the collective impact of our personal actions on the environment. Biking or walking instead of driving (when feasible) and eating a plant-rich diet are two of the many ways we can make a difference. . . Drawdown Solution #59 . Buildings and Cities – Bike Infrastructure . IMPACT: In 2014, 5.5 percent of urban trips around the world were completed by bicycle. In some cities, bicycle mode share was over 20 percent. Assuming a rise from 5.5 percent to 7.5 percent of urban trips globally by 2050, we would displace 2.2 trillion passenger-miles traveled by conventional modes of transportation and avoid 2.3 gigatons of carbon dioxide emissions. By building bike infrastructure rather than roads, municipal governments, and taxpayers can realize $400 billion in savings over thirty years and $2.1 trillion in lifetime savings. . https://www.drawdown.org/solutions/buildings-and-cities/bike-infrastructure . . Drawdown Solution #4 . Food – Plant-Rich Diet . IMPACT: If 50 percent of the world’s population restricts their diet to a healthy 2,500 calories per day and reduces meat consumption overall, an estimated 26.7 gigatons of emissions could be avoided from dietary change alone. If avoided deforestation from land use change is included, an additional 39.3 gigatons of emissions could be avoided, making healthy, plant-rich diets one of the most impactful solutions at a total of 66 gigatons reduced. . https://www.drawdown.org/solutions/food/plant-rich-diet . #GrassrootsClimate #climate #climatechange #carbondividends #putapriceonit #cleanenergy #carbonfree #renewableenergy #renewable #priceoncarbon #priceonpollution #bipartisanclimate

Well, I experienced my first heckler last weekend while speaking at the Athens Human Rights Festival representing @citizensclimate. Gotta admit, I was a little shook, but went on through. Eventually he was escorted away by the police, and I finished up. I'm honored to have been invited, thank you @citizensclimate for the training and @athenshumanrightsfest for the platform.

✊⚛️TAKE ACTION TUESDAY ⚛️✊ LINK IN BIO In just a few weeks, Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station will power down for the last time, after generating over 70 percent of Massachusetts’s clean energy for 47 years. It had another 13 years on its license, but because burning fracked gas is so cheap and it’s currently free to dump the CO2 in the air, Pilgrim will bow to market pressures and shut down. 😢 If that infuriates you-- you have a chance to prevent future closures by asking your lawmakers to support the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. It cuts carbon with a slowly rising fee, and puts that money in your pocket with monthly dividend checks. Link in bio!

Sweden wants to become the first fossil fuel-free country in the world⁣ 🌍 ↓ ⁣ According to Sweden.se currently 54% of all used energy comes from renewables.☀️ ⁣ ⁣ The target is 100 per cent renewable electricity production by 2040. ⁣⚡ ⁣ Electricity retailers are required to buy a proportion of ‘green electricity’ as part of their normal supply, while power producers receive certification for the renewable electricity they generate.⁣🌳 ⁣ This is an incentive for them to invest in generating renewable energy.⁣🌬️ ⁣ To achieve this goal they are making investments in green infrastructure, like solar panels and wind turbines, as well as cleaner public transport and a smarter energy grid and energy storage system.⁣🔋 ⁣ Few countries consume more energy per capita than Sweden, but Swedish carbon emissions are low compared with those of other countries. ⁣🇸🇪 ⁣ The reason for Sweden’s low emission rate is that about 80 per cent of electricity production in Sweden comes from nuclear and hydroelectric power. Sweden currently has three nuclear plants with eight nuclear reactors in commercial operation, but nuclear power remains a topic that divides political parties in Sweden.⁣💡 ⁣ Ultimately I believe renewables are the best source and the future, there is no doubt, but I am also a big advocate to quitting with fossil fuels as soon as possible. Even if this means that during the transition we need to leverage nuclear energy for some while. ⁣☢️ ⁣ What is your take on this? ⁣ ⁣ Photo by @MarinkaBosman

📸 #Repost from @nikkireed ・・・ Hi guys happy Sunday! Once a week my social media is given to a different student from our @yearsofliving #PutAPriceOnIt campaign to talk carbon pricing. This week is from Rhiannon McIsaac, a student at Attleboro High School in Massachusetts. We hope you like it as much as we do! Feel free to comment below and tell us stories about how you relate to Rhiannon’s beautiful words. “Since I was little I wanted to be many different things when I grew up: fashion designer, soldier, rockstar, veterinarian. Now, at 17, I still don’t know what I want to be. But no matter what I become, I want to do so in a world that still has mountains. I grew up hiking in the valleys of the White Mountains of New England. From the first time I saw them, the rolling hills and crisp mountain air took my breath away. It’s a feeling that can never be manufactured, that will stay with me for the rest of my life. That’s why we need an equitable price on carbon pollution. I don’t want to lose this place I love, the one place where I had ever felt completely at peace. I am a climate activist because I want my kids to be able to feel the same thing that their mom did when she was a 14-year-old girl in the backseat of her uncle’s car looking wide-eyed out the window.” ( #nikkireed #welovenikkireed #priceoncarbon #PutAPriceOnIt #putapriceonit #student #carbonpricing )

Part three about Co2 tax, this time: sector specific ⁣🏗️ ↓ ⁣ Okay so lets say we agree to adopt a flat Co2 tax for all industries, like economists recommend, businesses prefer an adjusted fee per sector. ⁣🧭 ⁣ Last month I was at @pakhuisdezwijger for a discussion about this topic between research institutes, economists, @greenpeacenl and the industry. ⁣🗣️ ⁣ Amongst others @tatasteelnederland was present, one of the biggest emitters of Co2 due to the nature of their business. ⁣🔧 ⁣ However steel is endlessly reusable and when compared to their global competitors they are the cleanest producer. Hence they vouch for a lower rate. ⁣💸 ⁣ The Dutch Central Bank calculated that a Co2 tax of 50 euro per ton will increase total production costs with less than 1%.⁣🤷‍♂️ ⁣ However the heavy polluting industries would take a bigger hit, those are the metal, chemical and artificial manure industries. ⁣💩 ⁣ Which would lead to risks of moving some of the production and Co2 emission to other countries. ⁣🌐 ⁣ The industry mentioned that when maintaining the flat Co2 tax, their budget for innovation in cleaner tech would come to a stop. ⁣🌳 ⁣ However the Co2 tax income could also be used in a special fund to give to businesses that invest in sustainable innovations. ⁣🛸 ⁣ This shows how difficult it is to come to an understanding, knowing all this what would you say flat or adjusted? ⁣ ⁣ Photo by @Marinkabosman

Part two about Co2 tax, Europe wide versus nationally ⁣⁣🇪🇺 ↓ ⁣⁣ Having an income tax only in The Netherlands would work, but to a less ideal extent. ⁣⁣🇳🇱 ⁣⁣ Like it does in Sweden who have had the tax since 1991. ⁣⁣🇸🇪 ⁣⁣ The fear is that larger corporations would shift part of their work to factories in countries that don’t have Co2 tax.⁣⁣ 😔 ⁣⁣ But history shows that the economy of Sweden grew with 80% since adopting the Co2 tax, while Co2 pollution went down with 25%. ⁣⁣👍 ⁣⁣ Of course there were side effects, like the major demand for bio-based fuels in Sweden, which need to be imported from all over the world.⁣⁣😕 ⁣⁣ It is good to know that fellow EU countries like Belgium are also planning to adopt the Co2 tax. Next to Sweden, Norway and France already have one. While the UK and Iceland already have additional fees for Co2. Professors expect that many other countries will also soon introduce an additional Co2 tax. ⁣⁣🌳 ⁣⁣ So to conclude The Netherlands is far from being front runner, and while an EU wide Co2 tax might be the best option. Corporates don’t need to worry about lossing their competitive edge seeing that many countries are preparing the switch. ⁣⁣😉 ⁣⁣ Tomorrow what about industry specific Co2 tax? ⁣ ⁣ 📸 by @floorvfloor

🌎5 ACTIONABLE WAYS TO HELP BATTLE GLOBAL WARMING🌍 These past few weeks, because of Earth Month (April), there has been so much talk about Global Warming. It inspired me to learn a little bit more. I recently watched the documentary #BeforeTheFlood with @leonardodicaprio . I am a huge nature lover and the thought of our planet being in imminent danger within the next several years, if no actions are taken, is completely frightening and heartbreaking. Below are a few less talked about, actionable items you can take according to Before the Flood:⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 1. Learn More: ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ #BeforeTheFlood & #cowspiracy documentaries on Netflix. Visit www.beforetheflood.com ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 2. Reduce your Meat Intake: 🐄Greenhouse gas emissions from agribusiness are an even bigger problem than fossil fuels. In the US, 47% of land is used for food production. Off that, 70% is used to grow feed for cattle. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 🐄Cows produce Methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. Methane is burped into the atmosphere. 1 molecule of methane = to 23 molecules of Co2. ⠀ ⠀🐄Beef requires 50x the amount of land in comparison to chicken. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 3. Don’t buy anything with Palm Oil 🌴Forests are being intentionally burnt down, releasing massive carbon emissions into the atmosphere, killing animals and displacing indigenous peoples. This is so people can make Palm Oil Plantations, the cheapest vegetable in the world. 🌴As a consequence, Indonesia – the world’s largest producer of palm oil – temporarily surpassed the US in terms of greenhouse gas emissions in 2015. ⠀⠀⠀ 🌴 Palm oil is in processed foods, cooking oils, cosmetics, candles etc. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 4. Carbon Tax : A tax on any activity that put carbon into the atmosphere. If we want to change the President’s view of a Carbon tax, we need to change the Public’s view. For Ex: Pres Obama went from anti to pro gay marriage once the public’s viewpoint shifted. @putapriceonit #putapriceonit ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 5. Share this Topic - Tag a friend & spread the word!

Today is the last day to do your income taxes in The Netherlands, so lets talk taxes⁣ 💰 ↓ ⁣ Recently Co2 tax has come up as one of the major solutions against climate change. ⁣🌳 ⁣ Economists have been the biggest promoters of this new measure. ⁣💱 ⁣ The principale is simple, making something harmful more expensive, to decrease consumption of it. ⁣🌫️ ⁣ It's the same tactic that has been used for products like cigarets and alcohol. ⁣🚭 ⁣ This would stimulate usages and innovations of clean energy and productions methods. ⁣☀️ ⁣ However many fear that this would make life unaffordable for some people. ⁣💸 ⁣ Some don’t know this but before being an environmentalist, I was a fairly political right person (for Dutch standards).⁣ 🇳🇱 ⁣ So why am I for more more taxes? Well raising taxes on one end would allow it to go down on the other end. ⁣⬇️ ⁣ They could use the additional incomes to lower income tax, which would benefit all working classes. ⁣👷‍♂️ ⁣ Of course, it isn’t this simple, so I’ll go over the other discussion in tomorrows post. ⁣🔜 ⁣ What is your opinion on Co2 tax?⁣ ⁣ Photo by @marinkabosman #marinkabosmanphotography

Today’s been a fulfilling day! With pulling, digging, and growing. It’s always amazing to me to watch plants live their own way and grow, especially through using the suns energy, water, and carbon dioxide and turning it into glucose for them to grow. I also enjoy that they provide for us, fruits, seasoning’s, vegetables, natural elements. It’s amazing and rewarding. #planting #naturalwonders #naturalprocess #environment #growingplants #climatechange #earthlysoulsandspirits #earthlyliving #putapriceonit

It’s Earth Day, even in #NYC 🚕🌳🚕 and it’s time to actually start taking care of the old girl. One way to do it is by enacting a carbon fee and dividend, a #bipartisan , common sense, economic solution for #climatechange. Check out our profile of #citizensclimatelobby at link in bio to learn more. 🌍💚
