December 12, 2015
December 2015 marks an evolutionary moment for our global climate. It's the day our world leaders set aside their political differences and agenda to take the first step in a long journey to reducing fossil fuel emissions aka CO2. The accord, known as the Paris Agreement, was adopted December 12, 2015. Hallelujah!
For the first time, in a very long time, I feel HOPE. Hope that slowly but surely mindsets across the globe will shift toward considering how each and every decision we make impacts the environment. There are far too many people in the world for the environment to absorb our abuses and continue to bounce back. WE have to adjust now.
So #BeAVirus - this is my new campaign to send out nuggets / tips of easy ways to reduce your FOOTPRINT on the land, air, water...you get the picture. Feel free to share. This is a message we want to spread to every nook and cranny of the world.
