This morning the tragic news in the IPCC report came in through the radio. Rockers, we are losing planet earth and faster than we thought – we need climate action and we need it now.
We are already at 1 degree about industrial levels and according to the Paris Agreement, we need to stay below 1.5 degrees to not have a completely devastating effect on humanity.
This has been known for a while but it seems like it’s a bit worse than expected. However, we can still turn things around with radical action – actions that start today. Things ARE changing for the better though, but we don’t only need better we also need faster and more.
Is climate change only working against us? Or could it work for us?
It reminds me of Paul Hawken and Project Drawdown wherein he shares the mindblowing statement along the lines of: ‘We should look at climate change as if it’s something that’s working FOR us and not against us’.
A line that’s SO empowering – that climate change is working for us, making us become our most purposeful and action-driven selves. Transforming the world through our actions.
I hope you can feel the empowerment right now -because I sure can. What if we started to own this statement, and started to transform the world every day?
What if we could be the generation that transformed the planet through the power we all have, at every given level of society. The opposite is really grim: being the generation that lost planet earth to climate change because of the way our society is structured.
The generation with the most badass legacy
We could become the generation with the most badass legacy. The generation that turns this around. The generation that hands our planet over to our kids and says “We’ve worked it out. You will be alright”, instead of saying “Doom and gloom”.
I know, we can do this together, we can’t lose faith and turn into small depressed cocoons. We need to do way more to transform things in the right direction.
So let’s do this! Let’s become the generation with the most badass legacy!
