Goodbye for six weeks Acadia! It’s pretty nice to have this place as a home. My last hike in Maine before heading home was up Gotham Mountain with some wonderful people! I feel so lucky to be surrounded by this place, my friends and the positive change that is happening in this world! That being said I hope all of you are paying attention to the fact that homes are burning. I just heard that my relatives in CA can’t leave their house because of the air quality! It upsets me that it is a privilege to breathe clean air!!!! Climate change is happening and it is impacting lives RIGHT NOW! 🔥🔥 People are missing, people can’t breathe, the earth is burning! White settlers and our society has forced the indigenous people of CA away from their traditional practices. If we look back at how the native tribes managed areas with their burning practices we see that they had a positive effect on the land. In one of my classes last week we had a local native woman come in and speak about how the conservation and management practices were regenerative to the environment in Maine. It all ties back together with the forced colonizing of indigenous peoples and the disconnect that our society has with the natural world. How can we build solutions to combat climate change taking in to account the wisdom of traditional land management practices, science and creative thinking?

Feeling like you’re swimming up stream 24/7 is so spiritually, mentally and emotionally draining — to all my fellow activists, remember to take care of yourself because the systems of oppression were fighting want us to be worn out and feel hopeless. Our best rebellion is self preservation and internal healing on top of the external work we do. This is as much a PSA for myself as it is to all of you. I am horrible at following my own advice, but lately I’ve been trying to prioritize my own happiness and healing for once ⚡️🔥 #ThisIsZeroHour #YouthToPower

Droughts are happening in nearly every region of the world, from the US and parts of Latin America, to Africa, and the Asia and the Pacific region, according to the World Resources Institute. In California, hundreds of thousands of acres of forests have been burned as a result of severe #drought brought on by #climatechange. We take water for granted and we need to be more mindful of this precious resource. Even though more than 70% of the earth is covered by water, we are limited in freshwater and need to conserve where possible. I shared some helpful tips in my latest blog post on #ahealthyblueprint ; check it out 🚰 This type of layout was inspired by the ever-so-talented @ecowithem_ ; I discovered her in my discover feed one time and fell in love with her illustrations to raise awareness for a variety of topics, such as the many uses of a banana peel! 💚

16 places most affected by Climate Change 6) Antarctica Impacts on wildlife: penguins There are about 20 million breeding pairs of penguins in the Antarctic. Some species of penguins in Antarctica are declining in numbers while others are not. The picture varies depending on where in Antarctica you are looking. Adélie penguins, a species well adapted to sea ice conditions, have declined in numbers in some areas and have been replaced at some sites by open-water species such as chinstrap penguins. Further south, emperor penguins, which breed on sea ice surrounding continental Antarctica, have also experienced a decline in numbers by up to 50% in places. Impacts on ice Ice shelves are the floating extensions of a grounded ice sheet. One of the largest ice shelves, the Ronne-Filchner covers an area slightly smaller than Spain. Each summer, a significant amount of meltwater is produced which can only be tolerated so long before the ice shelf will weaken and retreat. Climate in the Antarctic Peninsula has warmed by 3°C meaning that once stable ice shelves are now retreating. Since the 1950s this is a loss of 25,000 km2 of ice shelf. Melting of Antarctica ice results into sea level rise #antarctica #penguin #climatechange #climatereality #globalwarming #life #ocean #thisiszerohour #reportonclimate

The recent California wildfires have been reported as the biggest in California history, already taking 33 lives, along with tearing down forests and destroying animal habitats. The fire has serious health impacts, like smoke inhalation and burns. These fires are a reminder of the danger of climate change, as they create a drier climate in California, boosting fire activity. With earlier snowmelt in the spring and summer, California becomes hotter and drier throughout the year, the dry shrubbery acting as kindling for the wildfires. The fire seasons are getting longer, reaching new records. We must take action now to protect the people of California from future wildfires! #thisiszerohour #wildfires #climatechange 📷: @locherphoto @joshedelsonphotography @apnews @gettyimages

Happy birthday to this smiley bean and the king 👑 of logistics, @nageeartis ❤️! Zanagee is the only man I will ever love and an @thisiszerohour superstar 🌟. Literally on conference calls everyone is always like “I am so stressed and tired” and @nageeartis just smiles says, “I’m doing great, and btw I just secured the permits for the march.” The great Zanage is truly magical and talking to him always makes me less stressed. Have fun @nageeartis being an old person at college and please share your secret on how you are always so smiley 🙂because this sad hoe could use some pointers 😂 #HappyBirthday #ThisIsZeroHour

I’m starting to remember the patterns winter makes, on windows and across lakes, the complex poetry wind and snow inscribe on every exposed surface. Half my conversations in the last day or two have been about winter’s joys; walking across frozen lakes (and how to integrate this into transportation plans), biking through falling snow, the glitter and facets and deep sounds of frozen ice through long cold months, the visceral pleasure of a world writ anew every few months. That doesn’t make November less hard for me or for others, days shortening and expectations unchanged. It doesn’t mean I don’t also curse our city and my neighbors as my feet relearn walking on uncleared sidewalks (yesterday on the streets I walked, less than 10% of property owners had fulfilled their civic and legal responsibility to keep our sidewalks safe). And it doesn’t mitigate the apprehension I feel as our climate breakdown spirals, reading about California’s wildfires and evacuations. But it does ground me. Winter is both stillness and movement, stark and dangerous. Winter makes me consider action and stasis, the dangers of standing indecisive, the need to move even before we know fully where we are headed. The dangers of winter, both literally and metaphorically, are in our desire to find warmth alone, to look for solutions inside ourselves instead of with one another. Learning that I physically need to walk about 5 miles a day to avoid leg pain has been a gift, forcing me out of stillness and the supposed comforts of home (and a job that allows that) into a fantasyland that shares little more than the topography of my summer haunts. I’m still relearning the ways of winter, the layers of warmth, the shapes of friends in their winter coats, the foods that fuel me best, a beauty in empty spaces, everything I know in the movement of light and shadow.

This week Federal Judge Brian Morris ruled that the Presidential Permit of #KeystoneXL Pipeline “simply discarded prior factual findings related to climate change.” This ruling temporarily blocks the construction of the 1,179-mile pipeline until the government oversees a complete review of the pipelines’ potential environmental impact. This ruling brought on by the lawsuit filed by the Indigenous Environmental Network is a step in the right direction. At a time when the current administration has done everything in its power to strip back important environmental policies, we celebrate this victory. #thisiszerohour #waterislife #keystonepipeline @indigenousrising

More mending of a wool sweater. Today’s my first day ever winter biking in the light coating of snow/ice that stuck from yesterday and I’m still learning how dressing for it differs from dressing for winter walking. These mends are on one of my embarrassing number of thrifted (grey) wool sweaters. The maroon wool sweater needs a mend too, which makes me happy—mending is like being able to thank the animals and people and processes that keep me warm, connect myself to their lives and efforts in a way that reminds me through the rest of my day of how we are bound together in this world. I tried a few mending techniques here, some darning weaves and some patches, all with secondhand materials (silk and wool thread, silk printed obi). I’m currently partial to the patches this seasons; if I had a runway show for what’s hot in my personal mending bag and closet, you’d see a lot of this strutting its stuff. But it’s the layers that make mending so rich, both the immeasurable complexity in how such an object came into my possession and the care and details I add to it during my tenure as the body it was. Thank you to all of those who have touched and grown and sheared and made and shipped this sweater in all its forms before me! And here’s to its warmth on a cold day biking, to the little bits of story I add after each snag and moth and accidental scissor and the wear of life! 🍻

Hey Y’all! In these troubling times with so much that needs to change, I’ve begun to realize that the actions that need to be taken by our government to sustain our health and the planet are not going to advanced in the next two years. But, there is so much we can do in our individual lives. To help myself and others feel a sense of empowerment, community, and compassion while making life changes, I’ve decided to do Daily Sustainable Lifestyle Affirmations (I know, super sexy name 😄) on Twitter. If you have any ideas for affirmations relating to your sustainability journey, please leave them in the comments or tweet ‘em at me ( @danielleorner ).

If only one speech could cultivate a significant cultural shift in the world, however behind the scenes there are months of momentum building, email responding, op-ed writing, conference calls, meetings, traveling, partnership building, brand creating, and interviewing. The life of an activist, not for personal gain but for the collective impact, the ethical shift the takes place in the minds of millions due to your hard work and dedication. The life of an activist, the life of sleeplessness and of consistent rejection, but that life is the most impactful and the most beneficial to humanity. #TheClimateReporter #ReportOnClimate #Impact #Activism #YouthActivism #EnvironmentalActivism #Influencer #ActivistLife #BlackPower #ThisIsZeroHour #Speeches #VirginiaRally #YouthvGov #GenerationZPower #GenZ #YouthPower #TrialOfTheCentury

16 places most affected by Climate Change 5) Venice, Italy It’s impossible to walk the streets of Venice without being seduced by its anachronistic charm: the Adriatic Sea coursing through its canals, the romance of a gondolier’s serenade as you float beneath the Bridge of Sighs. In a place so at one with water, locals have come to expect flooding in Piazza San Marco and other parts of the low-lying city—but as ocean levels rise, Venice inches toward more serious inundation. Activists have taken on the challenge, investing in advanced flood gates and other technologies to stymie the impending swells. Artists have also taken a stand; in 2017, Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn created a massive sculpture of hands reaching out of the Grand Canal in an effort to draw attention to the sinking city.

I went fomenting revolution along the Mississippi last weekend, steep slopes on one side, post-rainy-day mushrooms and lichen on the other. It’s good to talk climate breakdown while literally leaping across bits of path that have eroded away, between steep drop and mostly-invisible wild organisms that we still don’t understand. Climate grief/terror has felt like a bottomless chasm to me, one that I used to fall into with little warning, no ability to extract myself. Now, I can mostly walk beside it, surefooted, my own safety precautions and skills strong enough that I pull myself out again when I start slipping in. But it’s always there, in every waking moment of every day, and in the sleeping ones too. I’ve woken with panic more than once, having slipped in and struggling in sleep-bleary fumbling to right myself, to calm myself, to trust that in the morning, I’ll keep trying to do what needs to be done, however small and insignificant it seems. It is a relief to begin to walk this path with others, to see the visible manifestations of our invisible connections and networks, to not merely trust, half in knowledge and half in desperate hope, that they are there. There’s an added layer of terror and fear I feel as I shed the last improbable wishes that I have been the kind of wrong that comes with quiet voices and pity. To fear and plan together makes our climate breakdown real in a way that is at once the first warmth of real hope and the final burial of a convenient cloak of denial. Thank you, kin. I’m grateful to be together on this treacherous path, connected in the seen and unseen. There is no species I’d rather face extinction with than you. ❤️

16 places most affected by Climate Change 4)The Amazon The largest rainforest on earth, the Amazon covers roughly 40 percent of South America. Here, travelers will find scarlet macaws and blue poison dart frogs living side-by-side with jaguars and brown-throated sloths in the wet broadleaf rainforest. Yet despite the Amazon's size, climate change has made it a fragile habitat. Extreme droughts have left tree species throughout the tropical jungle parched, as a result, they're vulnerable to large-scale dieback and more susceptible to forest fires. NASA reports that the Amazon's trees will start to die if the area's dry season lasts longer than 5-7 months—right now, the dry season clocks in at just a few weeks shy of that threshold.
