Ida Actions

Hi, all.

A couple of items on today’s docket–

First and foremost, of course, is Hurricane Ida (now “downgraded” to a tropical storm, though still very dangerous), which struck New Orleans on the 16th anniversary of Katrina and is continuing on a course of destruction through the South. We send love, solidarity, and strength to all those affected. Hurricane Ida was most likely made worse by climate change due to warmer than average water in the Gulf, though, a full attribution study (the field of study relating climate change to extreme weather events) will be needed to say anything more definitive.

If you want to help out with the immediate crisis here is a great primer, and Twitter has some ideas for how you can take action as well:

However, the real threat behind Ida and other ongoing natural disasters (i.e. the Caldor fire in CA) is anthropogenic climate change and specifically, our continued use of fossil fuels. This week, you can take action by signing a petition to tell the New York Times to stop publishing ads promoting fossil fuel companies:

Next, a reminder that we started a fundraising campaign to make the launch of our Climate Action Explorer as successful as possible. We see an incredible opportunity to grow the climate movement with our platform, but we need your help to make it happen. We had a great first week and are almost a third of the way to our goal! Get the details here.

And keep an eye out for ~exciting~ updates regarding our Virtual Launch Party happening Sept 24th!
