What hope looks like to a Bird.  The National Audubon Society is taking action on Climate Change in the wake of discovering that almost half of North American birds are likely to go extinct this century.  That's right, Audubon predicts that over 300 of the continents 700 species will be endangered if we do not do something to reverse global warming.  Click here to see what bird advocates can do to fight climate change.


Citizens' Climate Lobby

“If you want to join the fight to save the planet, to save creation for your grandchildren, there is no more effective step you could take than becoming an active member of this group.” (James Hansen, (Author “Storms of our Grandchildren.” Former director NASA Goddard Institute)

Energy Policy


As Clean Power Plan is gutted, Congress must step in to price carbon- In its zeal to undo the legacy of our 44th president, the Trump administration is now undoing the future of our children and grandchildren by repealing the Clean Power Plan, a policy designed to reduce the heat-trapping emissions that make our climate more and more inhospitable. Those who cheer the EPA’s move should remember that President Obama initiated the Clean Power Plan in 2015 in the face of Congress’s inaction on climate change. Without effective legislation to combat climate change, a future president could just as easily go down the path of executive action and regulations again. The best answer here is for Congress to pass legislation putting the market to work on solving climate change.



Energy Sources- How can we categorize the various energy sources and identify the costs that matter most? What public policies would help us achieve our goals?


Paying the full price for our energy -We need to account for what economists call the "social costs" of old fashioned fossil fuels.  The best way to do this is to put a price on carbon, and return the money to households.  Carbon Fee and Dividend is good for the economy and good for the climate


Florida Power and Light is bragging about having half a million solar panels.  But that is just a drop in the bucket compared to what is needed in the Sunshine State.  Check out this op-ed to see we how we can REALLY harness clean power through free enterprise.

How to heal America's Polarized Society- Perhaps I am more sensitive to the hate stirred up by our polarized (liberal vs. conservative) society because I am a non-partisan moderate by nature, upbringing and education.  But this is not about me, it's about the corruption this polarization has brought on our once great nation.  We cannot afford to harbor this much hate.  If you are interested in being part of the solution to this onerous problem, one approach you can take is to take responsibility for repairing the damage and work to tap empathy and respect for your fellow citizens.  Check out this video by Robb Willer


How to take action to mitigate climate change in three ways: In your own realm, by influencing people and by nudging government to act.  Click here to read Urgency and Action from the Florida Veterans for Common Sense.


How one middle class American Family reduced their carbon footprint by 40,000 pound a year, and made money while doing it.  See the 40,000 Pound Carbon Diet printed by the Electric Auto Association.


How to make Florida the Sunshine State. Florida is the state at the highest risk for the negative effects of climate change. Florida is therefore one of the ‘front lines’ for promoting awareness and a realistic understanding of the issue. So how can we achieve real reductions in emissions, while creating jobs, boosting the economy and having Florida become the real Sunshine State? See this Crew Commentary on This Spaceship Earth.
