As you know by now, I believe that each individual will follow their eConsciousness where it feels right. They'll change the products they buy and use in their homes, lead their businesses towards sustainability, support local farms, or take a role in education and advocacy--each a form of activism in its own right.
They may just need a push to get there. So here's a reminder to add this action to all of your lists--vote. With a million small initiatives and some very large ones needed to avert the worst of a climate crisis, the more awareness and support that comes from our pubic servants, the better.
Three web sites will help you appreciate what's at stake and provide an easy way for you to help put climate change where it needs to be on the political agenda. First is the Climate Change Coalition site. Start here for a quick, comprehensive look at the latest, via background articles, news, and movie clips.
Next, click from the Coalition site or navigate directly to ClimateUSA. Here, you'll see the trailer for a revealing movie on moving beyond the Kyoto agreement, along with a plea for participating actively in the 2006 Congressional elections. And even though voting day is rapidly approaching, you can take a minute to remind your candidates of your concern about climate change and their ability to lead the way.
The Questions for Candidates site will look up the candidates in your area, and gives you a template loaded with important questions that you can forward to your candidates.
Look, with even Evangelical Christians signing on to the cause in rising numbers, the time for real action in our seats of government is here. It's easy for you to be a part of it, too.
