You’ve got 2 years

You’ve got 2 years

If you are new here, I write about how to be a climate activist from time to time. It's been a passion of mine since the late 70's and it's never been more vital. As in 2 years vital. That's what the most recent IPCC report (part 3 of the trilogy) told us, point...

Art Changes Hearts

Art Changes Hearts

It’s been a minute - first I experienced a touch of end-of-the-year exhaustion and then a lovely rest with my girl Lilly visiting (yay for snow in Seattle she got to stay four more days!), and then Bob and I took a trip to run and hike in Big Bend National Park....

I’m Done Being Polite

I’m Done Being Polite

These last weeks have been all about COP26 and about how it fell short of what we need to save humanity. At first, as I read the many articles about the various failures of COP26 and Greta Thunberg saying it was mostly “blah, blah,” I found myself saying, ”Careful!...

Talking About the Climate

Talking About the Climate

My lovely friend Lu asked me to help her learn to talk to her clients about climate change. She’s a hairstylist - yes, she got me to let my stripe go gray! - and passionate about the planet, but often feels unsure what to say. We talked about climate silence and how...

Maintaining Hope

Creative Weather Challenge or Change the News

Creative Weather Challenge or Change the News

Independent climate journalist Emily Atkins recently wrote about how the news media is not adequately reporting on the climate emergency. This has been a frustration of mine for so many years! For example, during a recent heatwave in my state of Colorado less than 4%...

How About an Equity and Inclusion Policy for the Planet?

How About an Equity and Inclusion Policy for the Planet?

It’s vital that organizations and small businesses have crafted diversity, inclusion, and equity policies in recent years to address racism and transgender rights. Yes, these policy statements can end up being empty promises or performative activism, but they can also...

Find Your Climate Story

Find Your Climate Story

It’s extremely easy to get completely overwhelmed with being a climate activist (and yes, you are one!) because there is so much climate news to follow and so many things to take action on. But that’s actually a grand thing because it means there is so much more...

Banish Climate Silence

Banish Climate Silence

Let’s banish climate silence. What is climate silence?  People not talking to each other and their elected representatives and companies about the climate crisis. We fear getting our facts wrong, getting into pointless disagreements  with people who don’t...

Welcome to Create + Climate

Welcome to Create + Climate

You’re painfully aware of the climate crisis. You do your best to shrink your carbon footprint and make your voice heard by your political representatives. But it feels like so little. And yet, what else can you, one tiny person, do? It can all feel so hopeless and...
