"Action is the antidote for despair."—Joan Baez Featured
Notes: Worried about climate change? The best answer is to role up your sleeves and take action. In the book, The Great Disuption by Paul Gilding:
"From here [in the book] on we shift into hope. Hope that logical, uplifting, and a far superior place in which to live than that town called despair. Hope is not a question of personal philosophy. In the face of uncertainty, operating from a stance of hope is a strategic and practical response. It is a way of approaching the world. As environmental writer Professor David Orr said of it, 'Hope is a verb with its sleeves rolled up.'"
Again, worried about climate change? Grab some hope, take action, and let's get going to mitigate climate change.

Seth Klein has a interesting piece on overcoming climate despair. He discusses the situation of Canadians who are appalled by their Fed Govt policies.
“We are the U-turn Generation.” The concept is this: all of us who have the courage to look the science of global warming full-on wrestle with despair.
