Climate activists Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot talk about solutions to the problem of anthropogenic global warming: a combination of leaving fossil fuels in the ground and protecting and restoring living ecosystems like forests, mangroves, swamps and seabeds that can pull enormous quantities of carbon from the air and store them safely, naturally. Current government subsidies around the world enhance the use of fossil fuel. Thunberg and Monbiot advocate for the increase in funding for natural climate solutions so that we can protect and restore the environment for future generations to come. Thunberg and Monbiot, walk their talk. Likewise, this film was made with the smallest environmental impact possible. "We took trains to Sweden to interview Greta, charged our hybrid car at George’s house, used green energy to power the edit and recycled archive footage rather than shooting new." ~ Tom Mustill, Gripping Films. Everything we do counts. What will you do?

    Call on your HR department to have pension, 401k money divested from fossil fuel. Check your own investments. Mutual funds? Look at the holdings--call on fund managers to divest or switch your savings to a socially responsible fund. Call your bank- who and what do they invest in? ( Wells Fargo and Bank of America were supporters, investors in Keystone XL in US). Switch your bank accounts after you do your homework.

    Powerful! We can also walk or bike to work (when and where possible) We can eliminate use of plastic bags, using cloth instead. And yes to eating a more vegan/vegetarian style.

    We are creating a self sustainable vegan / vegetarian community, with a Permaculture food forest. You can also start by sprouting seeds for food .........

    I have been collecting rainwater (about 5000 gallons) for about 20 years to water my gardens, became vegan 5 years ago (was vegetarian), use solar energy, compost kitchen scraps and horse manure, and recycle. Next I would like to begin planting trees.

    My steps are small. Right now, tomorrow in fact, I am going to become a certified to compost at a brand new compost outpost here in Topanga CA, USA. Topanga offers many opportunities for inhabitants to be kind and thoughtful not only for today but for yesterday and tomorrow. I have been collecting leftover food scraps and there compostables in my freezer this week, and will take them to the Compost event and training tomorrow morning. I am only one person, but just multiply my humble efforts with others and landfills will shrink.
