Those of us with a brain and the ability to look at and understand factual information know that climate change is real. Some can argue all they want about causes, but the facts remain the same, no matter what one chooses to “believe.” This week my small gift toward the continuation of a world that I care about is to 350.0rg.
In their own words, this is what they stand for and do:
“The number 350 means climate safety: to preserve a livable planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 400 parts per million to below 350 ppm.
We believe that a global grassroots movement can hold our leaders accountable to the realities of science and the principles of justice. That movement is rising from the bottom up all over the world, and is uniting to create the solutions that will ensure a better future for all.”

The following are just a few of the places on this diverse earth that I have been drawn to for equally diverse reasons.
Sunrise in early winter from my home in Colorado.
A classic setting in the Bahamas, which I love and where I fell in love quite a few years ago.
A marsa along the Sudan coast. I am definitely drawn to stark, dramatic places, which doesn’t mean I want to live there. I find spending time in such places very rewarding and nourishing for my soul.
A representative coast of some of the more rugged Greek islands. If I ever thought I could learn to speak and read Greek at my age, I would live in Greece.
