Good morning! Happy Sunday! By now you probably know that every Sunday I donate my social media to my @YearsofLiving team to talk about carbon pricing! This coming week, we are submitting over 260,000 signatures to qualify a carbon fee ballot initiative in Washington State. Christine, who wrote this Sunday's post, has been helping to collect signatures. She's a student at Whitman College in Walla Walla. Please read these posts and get involved! “At 13 years old, I was a part of my first climate change debate. I researched, printed out graphs of the history of the Earth’s changing climate, and found evidence that proved my point. I was ready--ready to debate that the climate was changing without any human interference. Of course, this wasn’t a side I had chosen to argue of my own free will, but one my science teacher had selected for me. Though I love debates, primarily for the perspective they offer, I couldn’t deny that the “research” I had done all presented selective facts that proved the other side right. In all four years of high school debate team, that particular debate was the only one that I could not morally or scientifically justify. As a champion of reason and fact, there is no option other than to acknowledge that the climate is changing and that this change is induced by humans. It’s something we can act on. Not only is my fight for action on climate change a stance on our impact on the environment, but a stance against a denial of information for the profit of large industry. It is for the benefit of the forests, mountains, and coasts that I spend so much time enjoying, and against the corporations that want to destroy those for monetary gain. I stand for justice for the communities of color that are disproportionately affected by the changing climate, and against those who would deny them their rights to land, health, and sustainability. I stand because I can see no other option than to stand, and fight to #PutAPriceOnIt because I see no other future but the one that has to be sustainable to survive.”

Good morning! Happy Sunday! By now you probably know that every Sunday I donate my social media to my @YearsofLiving team to talk about carbon pricing! Please read these posts and PLEASE get involved!!! Also, amazing news! Carbon pricing passed the Massachusetts State Senate! We still need to get it through the House, but it's a major step forward. Thank you guys for everything you've done to get us to this point! Below is a post from Jacob at the University of Washington. “It’s incredibly easy to get lost in how expansive, how complex and how deeply-rooted environmental issues are. For many people, the magnitude and intricacies of the problem push us away from facing climate change at all. Many others feel compelled to combat climate change out of fear that something, anything must be done in order to avoid catastrophe and maintain some sense of a moral conscious for the next generation. Either of these reactions are simply human-nature. But when it is so easy to lose yourself in these problems, you have to dig that much deeper to instead find yourself within the solutions. Wherever you are coming from, bring your voice to this movement, and there will be a way to utilize your skills, talents, knowledge and experience to generate tangible action that bring us to a better, more sustainable future. I choose to utilize my skills and talents to fight for a price on carbon in my home of Washington State. During my fellowship with Our Climate, I've had the opportunity to collect signatures for Initiative 1631, a policy that would charge Washington's largest polluters and invest in our communities and clean energy. My hope that we can get this important policy on November's ballot is what keeps me fighting for, and believing in, a better future.”

The way she looks at you. The way you look at her. Here’s to all the adventures you two will have together. Thank you for being so present, so patient, so soft yet so protective. Thank you for reminding both of us to stop and smell every flower. Happy Father’s Day Love, Mama and the cub
How sweet it is to be loved by you. Happy Father’s Day Dad, I love you more than ever...
My sweet Ira girl. So many memories, so many adventures with you by my side. You’ve been my best friend for so long, and as I sit here and write you this letter, I still don’t know if I am able to say goodbye. You are the definition of unconditional love my gorgeous girl. You taught me so much about so much...in many ways our greatest teacher. You’ve been here for every chapter, as my rock, my favorite cuddle buddy and my best girl. We’ve explored endless fields, mountains, and airplanes. We’ve traveled across the country together more than once, snuggled on couches under one blanket, and jogged the hot streets of Georgia for miles on end sharing water bottles and kisses. We’ve slept in vans, lived in hotels, and jumped off of boats. Every chapter of my life feels like it wouldn’t have been as special without you, and now I don’t know how to let you go. I’m going to miss that goofy toothy grin, and watching you stretch your head up to the sky after every nap. I’m going to miss those sensitive eyes that looked so deep into my soul I sometimes wondered if you knew me better than I knew myself. You’re the only dog I’ve ever known that would sing along to the radio, letting us know when it was time to turn it up because you found one you liked. You showed me that sitting on my toes felt as sweet as holding hands, and you knew what I was thinking before I even said it. I still cant figure out how all 75 pounds of you could curl up into such a tiny ball at my feet. I guess you’ll have to explain that trick to me in our next life together. We shared so many secrets, so many laughs, so many tears. You know it all, you’ve seen it all. You brought smiles to all of us in our saddest moments, touching hearts everywhere you went, and there isn’t a single person who didn’t say you were magic my girl. Everyone who met you fell in love, everyone who met you wanted more. Thank you for being my kid in this life my Ira girl. Ill be bringing you back to our favorite lake soon...
Good morning! Happy Sunday! By now you probably know that every Sunday I donate my social media to my @YearsofLiving team to talk about carbon pricing! Please read these posts and PLEASE get involved!!! Below is a post from Gari De Ramos, a student at Clark University. “I was born in the Philippines, where I have spent only a small fraction of my life, but long enough for it to influence my views about climate change and developing countries. A drive from home to the mall in Manila should take no more than 20 minutes, given the distance. But because of traffic, hundreds of vehicles just sit there emitting toxins into the air. Climate injustice  exists not just on the global scale, but also in my local community of Worcester, MA. I became involved with Our Climate to organize youth in support of carbon pricing policies in Massachusetts, where I was encouraged to see politicians wanting to equitably distribute the funds made from carbon pricing. I’m thankful my work with Our Climate included bringing social justice groups together at a community art event in Boston, but carbon pricing — and being in Boston — felt detached from the immediate concerns of my neighborhood. Since moving to the US, I’ve had the fortune to meet with local environmental justice organizers in my area. They work to break the barriers low-income communities and communities of color face in accessing clean energy. There is beautiful work being done in these communities, but we need to bring these solutions and mindsets to the larger policy debate. There are huge local, national, and global networks of advocates working to combat climate change. While it may be easier for politicians to grasp the need for environmental and climate justice by looking locally, we cannot leave the developing world behind.”
