    A Bridge To Hope

    Ten ways to confront the climate crisis without losing hope; It’s easy to despair at the climate crisis, or to decide it’s already too late – but it’s not. Here’s how to keep the fight alive

    Rebecca Solnit, 18 November 2021 (UK Guardian)

    “The world as we knew it is coming to an end, and it’s up to us how it ends and what comes after…We must remake the world, and we can remake it better…[1] We still have time to choose the best rather than the worst scenarios, though the longer we wait the harder it gets…The only obstacles are political and imaginative…[2] One of the victories of climate activism… is that a lot more people are concerned about climate than they were even a few years ago, from ordinary citizens to powerful politicians. The climate movement…has had enormous impact…[3] Movements, campaigns, organisations, alliances and networks are how ordinary people become powerful…Values and emotions are contagious…[T]o find idealism amid indifference and cynicism is that good…

    …[4] The future is not yet written…We are writing it now…[5] Even when we don’t achieve our primary goal immediately,] the impact may be far more complex than we had anticipated…[6] Imagination is a superpower…The world could be far richer by many measures if we do what this catastrophe demands of us…[7] Waves of climate lies have washed over the public for decades…These lies seek to prevent what must happen, which is that carbon must stay in the ground, and that everything from food production to transportation must change…[8] History can guide us…[A few years ago, wind and solar] were relatively expensive and inefficient, and battery technology was still in its infancy. The most unnoticed revolution of our era is an energy revolution…[Solar and wind] are now widely considered to be more than adequate to power our future…

    …[9] We are the first generations to face a catastrophe of the reach, scale and duration of climate change. But we are far from the first to live under some kind of threat, or to fear what is to come…[10] Climate chaos makes us fear that we will lose what is beautiful in this world…[but in] 50 years, and 100 years, the moon will rise, and be beautiful, and shine its silvery light across the sea…Only when it is over will we truly see the ugliness of this era of fossil fuels and rampant economic inequality. Part of what we are fighting for is beauty…” click here for more
