    [32] Dismantle White Supremacy in All Its Forms

    [32] Dismantle White Supremacy in All Its Forms

    It is the responsibility of white people to dismantle white supremacy in all its forms. That's the only way forward to create a just, equitable, and sustainable society for all people.
    BIPOC leaders featured in this episode include Layla F. Saad, Cori Bush, Leah Thomas, Jason Reynolds, and Dr. Ibram X. Kendi.
    But it is up to white people to do the work. So let's get to work.

    [31] The Alternative Energy Rap!

    [31] The Alternative Energy Rap!

    In 2011 I wrote this goofy rap to help explain alternative energy to my 6th grade students.
    It references Justin Bieber and the Nissan Leaf, so you know it's good.
    Enjoy!

    [30] My 2020 Carbon Footprint Was Under 3 Tonnes

    [30] My 2020 Carbon Footprint Was Under 3 Tonnes

    I reduced my carbon footprint from 2019 to 2020 by 89%.
    In 2019 it was over 25 tonnes.
    In 2020 it was under 3 tonnes.
    Why live a low-carbon lifestyle? For me, it's all about justice.

    [29] Divest! Divest! Divest from Fossil Fuels!

    [29] Divest! Divest! Divest from Fossil Fuels!

    Harvard Forward contacted me this week asking me to help with their divestment campaign. Obviously, I did.
    The divestment movement is one of the most powerful levers we have against fossil fuel companies.
    What should you do? Pressure all organizations, institutions, and universities. Demand that they divest from fossil fuels.
    And message me after you contact them so we can share an air high-five together!
    What are you waiting for?

    [28] Monster Hurricanes & Climate Injustice

    [28] Monster Hurricanes & Climate Injustice

    2020's hurricane season toppled record after record. The biggest one? Most named storms in one season. There were thirty this year.

    So how is that connected to climate justice? Well, a story begins to unfold if we only look at hurricanes Eta and Iota. Both hit Central America in November within two weeks of each other.

    And things become pretty clear once we start looking at who's most responsible for global heating.

    [27] The Lorax, Ed Helms, and Scathing Social Commentary

    [27] The Lorax, Ed Helms, and Scathing Social Commentary

    The evil Once-ler (voiced by Ed Helms) sings "How Bad Can I Be?" in the 2012 film The Lorax.

    The lyrics touch on the economy, greenwashing, and extractive corporate growth. It's some seriously scathing social commentary.
