          Yes! I just finished The Overstory. You need to read it. I want to write about it.

          I was also thinking about helping to campaign for Marianne Williamson in Iowa, where I currently am. I also want to reduce my carbon footprint even more than I already have. It's already significantly lower than almost everyone else I know.

          The alternative is... uhh... screw it. Save yourself. Meaning: heading north, buy land, and learn how to (1) live off of it (2) defend it.

            Also, I'd like to vote for "climate change" to be the first category/topic on Readup. Who's with me?!

              That would be very interesting!

            That reminds me of when I was reading a whole thread on a subreddit somewhere about how to move to Greenland to avoid the consequences of global warming.

      Yes I’ve been panicking for a long time ...since Al Gores first movie. Great article ! I love the idea of cows eating seaweed and strict regulations. That’s what politics is all about, we’re stronger together . So glad it’s finally front row and center. We need the green initiative .
