LIGHTBULB MOMENT: I think I figured out what the one thing that all us normals can DO about climate change. For starters, we can just CARE about it. If you're short on time but long on giving a crap, watch this, the first "Save the Earth" PSA (planetary service announcement) that has made me laugh in ... ever. Then try not wanting to make everyone else watch it, too.
There was a time in my life when I thought policymakers would just like, make the right decision for Earth, pay attention to science, and be cool.
Doesn't look like that's happening so much.
That's why it's so great that there's always a new something happening to raise awareness (like the huuuuge People's Climate march on SUNDAY, Sept. 21, 2014, in NYC, for example). If you can't beat 'em, have a big ol' march or make a hilarious video and SHOW'EM!
