Come Together And Act

Friends,

As I am sure you are aware, these are crucial times. Indeed, we have potentially reached the global warming tipping point that we have been warned about now for years. However, this is notthe time to sit around feeling powerless and defenseless. If you are like me, you are feeling angry and apprehensive about the state of our environment and the damage that we as humans have caused. Ideally, our anger is inspiring us toward action, rather than overwhelming us toward inactivity. Anger is a powerful tool that can be channeled toward action and passion. For those of you that are involved in communities, have you considered what you can do as a group? We are capable, intelligent, and adaptable beings and when we come together we are a force to be reckoned with. This is not the time to be complacent. This is the time to draw upon all our resources- emotional, financial and time- to do something…anything.

As Ian Lawton reminds us in one of his 5 part series on the climate, we need to persevere, like the blade of grass that pushes through the concrete, even after its been trampled time and time again- we need to be irrepressible. And as Fred recommends in his article below, even just the shift toward seeing things in nature as living beings to hug, protect, and adore can help inspire us toward action. And others in this eBulletin call us toward reverence, awe, and commitment.

Every living being on this planet and indeed this universe is interconnected in a deep and meaningful way. We are literally made of the stars, we breathe the air that the trees cleanse for us, and we are in a symbiotic relationship with every creature in this web of life.

Take Yellowstone National Park, as an example. By the 1930’s all the wolves in the park were completely wiped out and there were zero remaining. Within a few years, the conditions in the park had declined drastically. The land waseroding and the plants were dying off.
