I watched the wonderful Mad Men series finale last night. Maybe it’s all those Disney movies as a child in the 60’s, but I love it when everyone (Betty the exception) lives happily ever after. Don didn’t jump off a building, and the main characters seem to have either found their true love or true self along the way. I’m praying we’ll have a similarly happy disney-esque ending with climate change, humanity’s most pressing problem ever, and my hopes were buoyed yesterday with Ralph Nader’s Pledge to Mobilize.
In case you’re unfamiliar with The Climate Mobilization (TCM), it is a grassroots volunteer organization created nearly a year ago around the time of the People’s Climate March. From the TCM website: “The Climate Mobilization is a new, all-volunteer organization. Our mission is to save civilization and the natural world from catastrophic climate disruption. We are dedicated to living in climate truth, and believe that working to solve the climate crisis is everyone’s responsibility.” There’s more to learn by visiting our webpage: http://www.theclimatemobilization.org/home
So Ralph Nader has signed the pledge to mobilize against climate change! That is a happy ever after chapter ending in a complex, epic climate change story. We have many chapters yet to write as we attempt to stave off the worst case scenarios predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the National Climate Assessment, and the myriad of peer-reviewed reports by scientists world-wide. If we want the climate change story to end well, we need you. If you want to feel you’re making a difference, join us. Simple as that. Ralph Nader and 1,000 other concerned citizens have already taken the pledge to mobilize. Here’s your chance.
