Your climate news site of the week: ScientistsWarning.org
This is what they say in the intro to their website, set up as a ‘wiki’.
Welcome to the Scientists’ Warning Wiki
The Scientists’ Warning WIki is full of relevant, powerful learning resources geared to the individual, local, regional, national and global levels. The Wiki aspires to answer the question “So what can I do?” It also tackles questions about climate science and related issues. Get started by reading our FAQ. Then watch a video introduction on how to be a better steward on Spaceship Earth. They say a journey of a thousand steps begins with the first step. Start here!

There are many ways that we can act to intervene in the catastrophic trajectory that civilization is taking in terms of the unfolding climate crisis. We refer to these actions as ‘interventions’ since we cannot ‘solve’ many of these problems in the conventional meaning of the word (putting things back the way they were), but we can intervene to improve them. This is in the spirit of Drawdown by Paul Hawken, which offers 100 of the most substantive solutions to global warming as a source of information.

Champaign, OH:  Night Moves


Started humming a song from 1962
Ain’t it funny how the night moves…
(Night Moves-Bob Seger)

I’ve been sitting outside, this evening, taking in the beautiful colors of the sky, as the sun slipped away, and the moon began it’s moonlight dance.

Night moves…

Get your orders in, tonight, before the night slips away…we close the market at 6am, tomorrow!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam
