I am sharing my thoughts in communities I am a part of because 1. Our planet is in crisis and quickly approaching 2020; and we are at 1.5 degrees Celsius. We can't go to 2.0 Celsius, or the planet will be unlivable by 2050. We need to mitigate both CO2 and CH4! Eating less meat and more veggies = cooler planet. Divest from natural gas. Eat less rice. ...go solar! 2.
Greenhouse gas mitigation has everything to do with bird conservation 3. M any of the birders are tax paying parents who want their children to enjoy the birds we all love! 4. M arshland birds are threatened because of rising tides. Seabirds are further threatened because fish they need to feed their young are going deeper or farther north to seek cooler waters. 5. Endemic birds in the Caribbean are threatened by decreasing habitat due to people, and bigger hurricanes make this problem worse than it already is. Please, everyone who cares about the planet, don't get annoyed that I am "off topic." Instead, step into your power and write a letter to the school board to support my letter and to city council to not sell off the Green Street parking garage to another luxury apartment developer ASAP....these issues are all connected!!! We need green affordable housing to address the poverty and reduce Carbon emissions. *---**CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION YOU CAN TAKE: Divesting from animal agriculture by switching to a plant-based diet can help our planet transform. A vegan diet is heart-healthy, non-violent, anti-colonial, and sustainable! **Pledge the **Ithaca * *10 or 30-day (Plant-based) Vegan Challenge!**www.facebook.com/groups/IthacaVeganChallenge/ <https://www.facebook.com/groups/IthacaVeganChallenge/>* Instagram* #VeganPlanet2020* *---**Sandy Wold, **sustainability educator/artist* B.S.
