Happy Earth Day fellow citizens!
We are, without a doubt, on the finest planet in the solar system — and as far as we can tell – the entire galaxy. Every time I experience a sweet breeze, or a chilled out turtle, or a bird with a song, it lifts my spirits.
With extreme weather all over the planet become more frequent, my spirits need lifting a lot more than they used to. So I try to do something regularly to keep us moving in the right direction.
Along with about 300 other people, I’ve been working not just for Earth Day, but Earth Decade, where we try to set things right. The team we assembled and the product we built is the brainchild of best-selling author Seth Godin. It’s called The Carbon Almanac.
Drawing on over 1,000 data points, the book uses cartoons, quotes, illustrations, tables, histories, and articles to lay out carbon’s impact on our food system, ocean acidity, agriculture, energy, biodiversity, extreme weather events, the economy, human health, and best and worst-case scenarios.
It’s available worldwide on June 22. Available for pre-order now. See a video tour of the book at https://thecarbonalmanac.org/
