  • Here is a simple message to enjoy the wonders of life while we have them. If we don’t do something soon, we won’t have these things to enjoy. And then we won’t be there either. We need to step up and act otherwise our world will crumble before our eyes and the wonders and beauties of life will be no more. Hopefully we can reverse this mess we made before it’s too late.  If you are reading this, leave a comment on this post and tell us something you do to help the environment and make sure to leave a like!
If you actually read all of this comment 🐢 we want to see how many people actually read these😂 .

  • Canvassing in Leslieville w Min Sook Lee. Interesting, the very precise issues people bring up. Disability legislation. Garbage collection.  #climatecrisis (most people). Proportional representation. Housing. Wonderful to have these doorstep conversations. #thisiswhatdemocracylookslike #NDP #MinSookLee

  • But doesn't plastic biodegrade... Eventually?

How long do you think it takes regular plastic to decompose?  One hundred years or maybe a thousand? How about never.

Most petroleum plastic takes a thousand years to break down, but even then, it won’t decompose into useful nutrients, it just turns into infinitely smaller pieces of plastic, which act like magnets in the water, attracting toxic substances.

So why doesn't plastic decompose? 
Because microbes - those tiny but essential organisms that convert decomposed matter into vital nutrients - turn their nose up at most plastic, they simply won’t consume it.

  • Salt & Vinegar Chips, amirite? 😉

I’ve always loved Salt & Vinegar Chips, I mean, love them so much, ya girl ain’t afraid to eat a whole bag in one sitting. Those were the days. 
Ever since moving towards a low waste lifestyle, I have found myself thinking more creatively about how I can use less waste to get basically the same result for different things. So bing, bang, boom. I found a handy little recipe online and taught myself how to make homemade Salt & Vinegar Chips.

Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips:
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 45 mins

Ingredients: •	3 Idaho Russet Potatoes •	1/2 cup apple cider vinegar •	1/4 cup sea salt •	oil for frying

Instructions: 
1. Thinly slice the potatoes on a mandoline
2. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and pour the vinegar over them.
3. Toss the potatoes with the vinegar to coat and allow to stand for 1-2 hours.
4. Drain the potatoes and spread out on a baking sheet lined with paper towels to allow to dry.
5. Heat about 1-2 inches of oil in a large pot over medium heat.
6. Drop in one potato slice to test the oil. If the potato begins to sizzle, the oil is ready. If not, wait another 2-3 minutes.
7. Drop in 4-5 slices of potato into the oil and cook for 1-2 minutes. Flip the potatoes over and continue to cook for another minute or until golden brown and crispy.
8. Transfer the potato slices to a plate or baking sheet lined with paper towels and immediately sprinkle with sea salt.
9. Serve immediately.

Please let me know if you decide to try this for yourself! I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed 🤪

  • Some things I’m thinking about post-trip:
.
.
1️⃣Farmers in The Gambia (and around the world) are feeling and paying for climate change *every* day. It’s so important that we in the U.S. internalize – not just intellectualize – the urgent reality of climate change!
.
.
2️⃣Farming is hard work. Climate change is making it harder. The people I met in The Gambia, like these fishermen, aren’t waiting around for help. Far from it. But if governments in rich countries like the US are going to pitch in, and they urgently need to, we need to make sure these efforts *support* communities – not hinder or distract or undermine.✊

  • Talk about coconuts. About who won the football. About your new-found use for kale. About each other. And then then talk about climate change. About carbon emissions. About plastic free living and about global climate in-action.
.
Talk about in-season fruit. About how utterly hilarious you sound trying to hit Beyoncé’s high notes. About the joy of eight hours sleep. About your grandpa’s vintage watch. And then talk about world politics. About politicians’ words. About their inaction and their treatment of each other.
.
Talk about being brought breakfast in bed. About the on-going hilarity of Julia Louis-Dreyfus. About kick-ass conscious brands and about the second-to-none beauty of a poached egg. Then talk about systematic racism. About colonisation. About cultural appropriation. About white privilege.
.
Talk about the soft snores of a sleeping kid. About how you have no idea how television actually works. That you’re still pissed off about Cersei’s death, and about the time you were peed on by a lion <#truestory>. And then balance that shit out by talking about the bigger stuff, about your voice, about your actions, about your impact.
.
Don’t just pay your water bill on time, laugh at another of Roger’s inappropriate golf jokes and think that’s enough of playing grown ups for the day. Come on Todd! You can do better! You know you can. And you also know that even your decision to *avoid* political and social issues, *is* indeed political <hold hands up for high five>
.
Lord knows I love a good old chat about nothing. Yet only if it’s in between a whole lot of SOMETHING! So here’s to a Tuesday filled with a whole bunch of nothings, a couple of carefully-devised anythings, and then a conscious smattering of healthy somethings! Xx

<And with that she is back to the coconuts, while unsuccessfully trying to block her lion-peeing-childhood trauma. End scene>

  • The #youthclimatesummit was unlike anything else, I have so much love and respect for every Zero Hour core team member. You all have taught me so much and have showed me so much love. I am eternally grateful that you all have come into my life. I can’t wait to continue fighting the #climatecrisis along side all of you because #ThisIsZeroHour

  • A plastic bag has a 12-minute lifespan from when it’s initially filled with groceries at the grocery store to when it is discarded.

Compare this with estimates that those same plastic bags take anywhere from 10 to 1,000 years to decompose depending on what environmental conditions the bag is disposed of in.

Quickly, the picture becomes clear that for a few minutes of use, plastic bags weigh heavily on long-term environmental impact.

These bags eventually make their way to landfills and into our oceans, adding to the 8 million metric tons of plastic entering the ocean every year. This impact every scale of marine ecosystems, from bottom feeders and microorganisms to whales.

There is a price to convenience and it’s steep.

  • Air pollution from coal-fired power plants is linked with asthma, cancer, heart and lung ailments, neurological problems, acid rain, global warming, and other severe environmental and public health impacts.

Of coal’s many environmental impacts, none are as harmful, long term, and irreversible as global warming. Global warming is driven by emissions of heat-trapping gases, primarily from human activities, that rise into the atmosphere and act like a blanket, warming the earth’s surface.

Consequences include rising temperatures and accelerating sea level rise as well as growing risks of drought, heat waves, heavy rainfall intensified storms, and species loss. Left unchecked climate change could lead to profound human and ecological disruption.
