“The Earth is what we all have in common.”

Another very informative post by @yearsofliving discussing climate migration, a topic that isn’t being talked about enough.

“For a growing chunk of the world's population, the climate crisis is not a far-off threat. Extreme weather is forcing families to make the ultimate sacrifice: to uproot their lives and make long and often dangerous treks to wealthier or safer countries in search of stability.

This is a life or death situation for many, and it's happening right now. Our interns @priya_roo and @leesa.ara explain.

Planting trees and restoring ecosystems are important to climate recovery but it’s just not enough. You may see corporations claiming that if you buy their tote bag your saving the earth because they use the profits to plant trees but in reality saving the earth requires a large systemic shift, one of those being a change in consumer behavior (ie not buying the tote bag if you already have one)
