Global Warming and Climate Change Inspiration and Resources
This page is devoted to organizations and people fighting to make a difference for All Our Relations—those with wings, feather, fur, fins, scales or leaves, all the beings with whom we share this world—and who are in grave danger due to the rapid climate changes that are taking place in the form of global warming. Please help save our world and the animals from environmental destruction and species extinction.
Scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal. Here’s proof with data and photos from NASA.
Here is a list of 50 simple things that everyone can do in order to fight against and reduce the Global Warming phenomenon: some of these ideas are at no cost, some other require a little effort or investment but can help you save money, too.
Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis. With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.
This site by NASA contains excellent resources concerning climate change, energy conservation, and recycling from a kid-friendly perspective. Interactive stories and games make learning fun while answering questions and offering tips on what each of us can do to make a difference. It also has information on green careers.
The Climate Reality Project is a nonprofit, nonpartisan effort founded by Nobel laureate and former Vice President Al Gore. The goal is to build a movement that creates the political will to solve the climate crisis. To promote global action, Climate Reality brings millions of people together to demand their leaders embrace solutions to the climate crisis.
Activist and spoken word artist Prince Ea released video, “Dear Future Generations: Sorry,” to urge young people to take immediate action to stop climate change.
True and lasting change happens when the power of the law is on your side. That is why the earth needs a good lawyer. Earthjustice uses the law to preserve a rich, sustainable and diverse natural heritage for current and future generations. They select cases that will protect endangered species, sensitive habitats and threatened wildlands; reduce human impacts on ecosystems; and hold accountable those who damage them.
ForestEthics (now STAND)
STAND is an advocacy organization made up of people challenging governments and corporations to make the health of our communities, our environment and our climate the top priority. They protect the forests and the stable climate required to keep our planet – and us – thriving.
The Green Seattle Partnership is a collaboration between the City of Seattle, Forterra, community groups and non-profits, businesses, schools, and thousands of volunteers working together to restore and actively maintain the City’s forested parklands. The urban forest is the City’s green infrastructure. A sustainable forest will have both a multi-aged canopy of trees and a forest floor alive with native species that provide habitat for a diversity of native insects and wildlife. The process of forest growth will itself build new soils, improve air and water quality, and retain stormwater.
The IPCC is a scientific intergovernmental body set up by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The IPCC was established to provide the decision-makers and others interested in climate change with an objective source of information about climate change. The IPCC does not conduct any research nor does it monitor climate related data or parameters. Its role is to assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis the latest scientific, technical and socio-economic literature produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change, its observed and projected impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation. IPCC reports should be neutral with respect to policy, although they need to deal objectively with policy relevant scientific, technical and socio economic factors. They should be of high scientific and technical standards, and aim to reflect a range of views, expertise and wide geographical coverage. Their latest resource is “Climate Change and Water.”
Activist and spoken word artist Prince Ea opens by saying, “Fun fact: Planet Earth is 4.5 billion years old, mankind, about 140,000 years old. Let me put that in perspective. If you condense the Earth’s lifespan into 24 hours—that’s one full day—then we have been here for, drum roll please, three seconds.” Only by coming together, he says, can we make it to the proverbial fourth second.
Julia Roberts is the voice of Mother Nature who has a hard truth to share. The challenges facing nature’s oceans, rivers and forests affect us all — and saving nature is the only way to save ourselves.
The Pachamama Stakes: Race for the Earth was inspired by a shamanic vision and messages from wild and domestic animals. It is their intention to offer us hope, inspiration, and a call to action. Enjoy, and please share their message with others. Visit Windwalker’s Message for the World to learn more.
Taking care of our trees is good for our environment, our neighborhoods, and ourselves. Trees clean our air and water, reduce global warming pollution, provide habitat for wildlife, raise property values and offer green relief throughout our city. Seattle has lost more than half its tree canopy since the 1970’s. We can all help to “Keep the Emerald City Green.”
Ever wondered how All Our Relations feel about the environmental challenges our modern world is facing and what solutions they might offer for climate change? Windwalker’s Message for the World: A Shamanic Vision offers hope and insights from the animals and nature on how to heal ourselves and the Earth.
What becomes possible when millions of women remember who and what we really are – and then direct that collectively towards the greening of our world? Imagine a reforestation revolution ignited by the shared creativity and courage of a global network of millions of women.
