During this urgent global climate crisis, with all eyes are on the world’s atmospheric carbon level — measuring 415 PPM in May 2019, with the goal of returning to the late 1980’s level of 350 PPM — we must immediately change gears following the catastrophic loss of a large chunk of the Amazon rainforest due to ferocious forest fires.

SOLUTION: It’s time to step up the America’s transition to solar energy. ST-Saga-CovFrnt-72dpi-300Additionally, let’s plant more trees on every continent ASAP.

In July 2019, the atmospheric carbon level actually dropped a bit to 411.77 PPM which was very exciting. There are so many countries and so many millions of global citizens working tirelessly, making sacrifices and changing our lifestyles in our effort to lower our carbon footprint, which in turn lowers the atmospheric carbon level. It’s nice to see that our committed efforts are netting positive results. It was only a few weeks later, however, that the Amazon rainforest was consumed with fire. Argh, now the CO2 level will rise again.

So, we must move quickly to counter the effects of the fires.

We know we’re going to have to switch to solar at some point, let’s take the leap right now so we can save more lives. There are much too many benefits not to switch ASAP:

It’s exciting to find excellent resources that make transitioning easier. EnergySage is just that, a user-friendly resource that makes the transitioning process stress free.

It only takes a few clicks to save the world and our futures… Let’s Go!

Will Climate Action 100+ Unseat Mitch McConnell in 2020?

Who is Climate Action 100+? A very powerful, strategic force to be reckoned with, that’s for sure. One that has the potential to derail Mitch McConnell from American politics for the remainder of his days on earth… after all, McConnell is the single most culpable American connected to the US’s massive contribution to global warming during the past 35 years.

In 1984, when McConnell began his career as a US Senator, carbon part per million was approximately 345 PPM. Scientists were alarmed. Carbon was on the rise and had to be quickly contained. Previously, it had hovered below 310 PPM for thousands of years. But McConnell, from the coal producing state of Kentucky, was determined to block all legislation that would impact coal production levels.

From 1985 to the present, there have been dozens of international conventions with representatives from the majority of countries in the world gathering to brainstorm collectively and address the rise in carbon levels and ways to curb it. At the conclusion of each meeting, agreements were reached. In America, groups of concerned legislators have tried to pass bills that align with these numerous  international agreements. But, McConnell has done everything in his power to block each bill. In fact, it was Mitch McConnell who convinced Trump to pull out of the Paris Agreement.

Under Mitch McConnell and the GOP’s indifference, carbon has seen a staggering jump from 345 PPM in 1985 to the newly released 415 PPM in 2019. Hundreds of thousands of innocent victims across the globe have perished as a result.

Climate Action 100+ is a group of more than 320 global investors who have formed a coalition to collectively govern an excess of $33 trillion in assets for the purpose of:

  • improving management
  • cutting carbon
  • strengthening corporate financial disclosure about climate

The group is lead by a Steering Committee that has ten members. The additional member roles and functions are broken into five Engagement Working Groups, one group for each of the five main participating continents.

  • Asia
  • Australasia
  • Europe
  • Multi-region
  • North America

The North America Engagement Working Group is overseen by Ceres, who’s motto, “Sustainability is the bottom line,” sums up their mission.

Through superior organization, significant assets, and a life-and-property-threatening purpose, does anyone doubt that Climate Action 100+ won’t be able to leap tall buildings and move a few mountains… coal mountains to be specific. Good luck! We’ll be keeping a watch on the progress.
