From Live Climate:
At a time when our leadership is truly theatre of the absurd, when our global biosphere is screaming for attention as polar ice caps melt, tornadoes & hurricane seasons are upon us, fires rage out of control, the fragile beauty of this Earth has never been more poignant. Nor has it ever been more apparent that the young people who stood up and continue to school strike for the climate (Thank you, Greta Thunberg!) represent the leaders of tomorrow. Actions, not words.
Live Climate came about as an homage to the upcoming 50th anniversary of Earth Day (April 22, 2020), a way of celebrating the grassroots movement that has taken us far – but not far enough.
With today’s technologies, we have the power at our fingertips to communicate effectively with one another, with global leadership, with corporations seeking new ways to make a difference. Remember when Ben & Jerry’s ice cream launched their “Who’s Afraid of the Doughboy” campaign? Remember when JFK stated: “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” When Martin Luther King preached “I have a dream.” When butterflies were free and not kept in viewing cages or zoos? Before the hundreds of endangered species (mankind included) were added to the endangered list?
