Climate Action Now! Hope, Fun and the Future of CAN!

Thanks to all of you who attended and contributed your ideas to today’s 9:45 Forum, hosted by the Climate Action Now! team.  Several of you commented about ways to spread the word about our programs, our concerns, our recommended actions.  You, of course, can play an active role in the dissemination of this information. 

Please share these links with your own networks—friends, family, neighbors, work colleagues.  The more of us who use our connections to talk about the perils of climate change and the necessity of finding solutions (from the political, to the corporate and financial, to the little things we can do individually to change our own behaviors and practices), the more we grow our impact.

We at the Ethical Society are not the experts.  Nor do we possess a large megaphone.  What makes our group different is community—we are people already united around a shared set of values which include earth stewardship and a sense of responsibility toward each other and the generations that follow us, with no expectation that some supernatural power is going to swoop in and save us.  

Let’s build on that foundation of community, strengthening our ties to each other, drawing hope and inspiration from each other, enjoying each other’s company while engaging in the serious work of dealing with climate change.

I hope you will consider participating in the service projects, political actions, and social activities that we may plan over the coming months.  I hope you will even consider planning and sponsoring some of those activities.  It may be cliché, but it really does take a village.  And the Ethical Society of St. Louis is our village.
