Earth Day 2014

Please join me in a Thunderclap in honor of Earth Day. If everyone of my readers, friends on Facebook, and Twitter followers joins my campaign and shares it with their friends, we can reach 1000s of people by April 29. We need to keep the momentum from Earth Day, April 22, alive and growing!

The message is simple – the time is now for us to unite our hands and hearts to slow climate change.

Yesterday the United Nations issued a report warning that governments are not doing enough to prevent profound environmental risks in coming decades…not centuries, decades!  http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/14/science/earth/un-climate-panel-warns-speedier-action-is-needed-to-avert-disaster.html?_r=0

This is exactly the message in my novel, I Call Myself Earth Girl. 

The silver lining in all this is that there is still time to do something about it if we have an intensive effort over the next 15 years.

The most encouraging aspect of all this is that for the first time ever the political will to take serious, committed action on the environment is rising across the globe.

I believe this will is the direct result of the grass roots efforts by people like you and me to raise awareness and to keep environmental issues front and center in our conversations, emails, and letters to our governmental leaders.

So, here it is… a call to action now! We have 15 years to save the future for our children, grandchildren and all those who follow.

We have been chosen to transition humanity to a new way of living, that will allow all to have a decent standard of living, achieved by living in harmony with nature and with each other.

The scientific evidence is clear. We can not wait. We must not wait.

It is our privilege and our responsibility because we are the humans who live on this planet right now. We can not let our differences divide us and keep us from solving the greatest problem of our time.

When it comes to climate change we can not be Democrats or Republicans. We can not let religious beliefs, national boundaries, political and economic philosophies divide us.

We must do all we can to learn how to reduce our own carbon footprints now. We must continue to protest, petition and speak out against policies that harm the environment. We can not wait for someone else to do it for us.

This is our problem because this is our planet, our lives, our future.

We are the leaders we have been waiting for!

Please join me with optimism and faith in your fellow human beings.

I believe making the necessary changes within 15 years is the biggest challenge the worldwide community has ever faced. I believe we can do it.  But not without YOU!

In coming blog posts I will be sharing resources and asking readers to do so too. If you blog, please reblog this post, or do a blog of your own about this topic. Blogging gives us a free opportunity to reach people across the globe.

Let’s get this movement moving full speed ahead!

About What a Heart Can Hold

I'm Jan Krause Greene - writer, peace activist and lover of the earth. I formed my opinions about life at an early age and they haven't really changed much since then - I believe war does not create lasting solutions, love will be the real revolution, and the human heart can expand until it holds love for the whole world. I have been a teacher, a newspaper columnist, a bank teller, a house cleaner, an executive director of a non-profit dedicated to education advocacy, a diversity trainer, AIDS activist, a group facilitator, and a waitress. Whatever it took to raise 5 kids and remain true to my values. I can't carry a tune, but I love to sing and don't know any steps, but I love to dance!

    • David, If you ruled the world it would be a place where people live in harmony with nature and with each other and, of course, there would be lots and lots of hugging! I nominate you for Emperor of the World!
