This is Our Moment

One of the reasons why I grow my own organic fruits and vegetables, started keeping hens, and look for locally grown foods that I’m not growing myself is to reduce the amount of fossil fuel used in transport of food. Fighting global warming is the most important thing that each of us can do in our own lives.

But we can’t do it just by individual action here and there. We need action at the national level. That’s why I’m also an armchair activist. It’s really simple.

Please watch this short video with Leonardo DiCaprio, Forest Whitaker, Justin Long, and others on a clean energy bill. It was made for the Natural Resources Defense Council. Click on the link, watch the short video, then email your senators from the same page. NRDC makes it really easy. You don’t even have to know their names (although, of course, you should).

Together, we can do it. Thanks.
