“The rainforest is doing us a huge service for free. It’s doing so much work for us to keep us alive and to keep us having the life that we have!” – @gisele ::: #ICYMI: When Brazil passed legislation to open up nearly 1.5 million acres of the Amazon to development, our #YEARSproject correspondent Gisele Bündchen tweeted at Brazilian President Michel Temer, asking him to stand up for the rainforest. And he did, tweeting back at Gisele and announcing that he would veto the legislation! This is a behind-the-scenes photo of Gisele from her story, ‘The Battle in the Forest.’ WATCH and learn more about the battle to save the Amazon in Brazil in SEASON 2: EPISODE 4. #YEARSproject #ActOnClimate #amazon #brazil #gisele #giselebunchen #rainforest #climateaction #behindthescenes #bts #micheltemer

TODAY, our @putapriceonit campaigners are headed to the #Massachusetts State House for the Hearing on Carbon Pricing Legislation! Youth leaders like Anna will be testifying in favor of pricing carbon pollution. Join @putapriceonit for this important #climateaction and support those testifying in favor of this critical #climate policy. They’ll be at the Gardner Auditorium at the State House in #Boston from 1-5pm. Massachusetts could be the first state in the country to implement a carbon fee or tax! In order for them to succeed, they need your help. If you cannot make the hearing, please consider tweeting @massgovernor a message respectfully encouraging him to support #carbonpricing #PriceItMA. #Repost @putapriceonit ::: #putapriceonit #carbonpricing #priceoncarbon #climateaction

#Repost @iamnikkireed ・・・ Hey guys happy Sunday! By now you probably know that every Sunday I donate my social media to my @YearsofLiving team to talk about carbon pricing! I read some of your comments last week and realized you’re so right- we have to talk about the problem but also about SOLUTIONS! Thank you for your input as it helped in putting together this post! This week is by Clarissa Marconi, a student campaigner for #PutAPriceOnIt. She says some of the things she does in her day to day life to help fight climate change. “When you look at climate change, you see an immense problem that is not only affecting you and I, but the whole world. You see this colossal problem and immediately it becomes so overwhelming, that you don’t even know where to begin. As a result you can feel scared and end up doing nothing, and then feel remorse. You probably feel that whatever you do will not help make a change, but what if I told you that you are not alone and that it does matter? Today I will be encouraging you to take action just like I have, to help prevent the ongoing detriment of this beautiful place we are lucky to live in. There are many ‘small’ things that you can do in your day to day that will help make a change. In order to help reduce greenhouse emissions, you can adopt a plant based diet. Throughout the years, I have reduced my consumption of red meat. Additionally, I begun buying locally sourced foods, to reduce carbon transmissions that usually come from lengthy transportation routes. I reuse my grocery bags as trash bags and instead of buying plastic water bottles, I bought an aluminum bottle that I refill. When given the option, I choose to go to restaurants that also practice environmentally friendly habits such as recycling, composting and eco-friendly dish ware. Finally, I would like for you to join us by supporting putting a price on carbon and the #PutAPriceOnIt campaign, because we need you. Let’s not take our world for granted and let’s start protecting it.”

Happy Global Wind Day! Today, let’s raise awareness of the role of wind power in reshaping our energy systems, decarbonizing our economies and boosting growth and jobs. WATCH @yearsofliving Season 1: Episode 6 featuring @americaferrera to learn more about wind energy ?: @globalwindday from Marios Zangas of “A unique ‘first of its kind’ 73.2 MW wind farm on a small and uninhabited Greek island called Agios Georgios. Agios Georgios is the only onshore wind farm with offshore characteristics to be ever built across the globe. 25 nautical miles of submarine cables were needed in order to connect the wind park to Athens’ electrical grid. In the middle of the vast Aegean Sea Agios Georgios wind farm produces clean energy for the increasingly demanding Attica region.” #globalwindday #windenergy #windpower #cleanenergy #renewableenergy #greece #windturbines #americaferrera #YEARSproject #greece

DID YOU KNOW: Among all foods, beef production stands out for its high environmental impacts, using 20 times more land and generating 20 times more greenhouse gas emissions than beans, for example. The ongoing expansion of agricultural land is also the dominant driver of deforestation today. In @yearsofliving Season 2: Episode 3, our #YEARSproject correspondent @Gisele Bündchen travels to Brazil to see what happens when pristine forest is mowed down for cattle ranching. Across Brazil and the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean, roughly 350 million hectares of land have been deforested, and an additional 300 million degraded. Combined, that’s an area twice the size of Argentina. Changing what we eat is a relatively simple way to help protect forests, conserve water and generally do better by the environment.

#Repost @iamnikkireed ・・・ Hey guys happy Sunday! By now you probably know that every Sunday I donate my social media to my @YearsofLiving team to talk about carbon pricing! Please take a second to read this post to figure out how you can get involved!! Remember it’s up to us! This Sunday’s post is by Jason Sleisenger, a #PutAPriceOnIt Fellow at UCLA. Ps The last two sentences are my favorite :) “I am motivated to work as a climate activist because I believe climate change is both a major short term and long term problem. It will negatively affect our country and the rest of the world for years to come, unless we choose to take drastic action to become more sustainable and curb our carbon footprint. I believe carbon pricing is a very effective way to reduce carbon emissions while funding programs for research in a variety of fields–not just the environment, and any additional money can be used by the public for services they need. It truly is a win-win for both individuals and the climate of our planet as a whole! Cutting our carbon emissions will not only help us preserve the natural beauty that is abundant in our communities and throughout the world, but it will also ensure that we maintain our food supply for our growing population and keep the air we breathe and the water we drink clean for us, our children, and our children’s children. Now, more than ever, I feel compelled to take action to help keep our planet as beautiful as it was since the beginning of human civilization. Our planet has nurtured us since the beginning of our lives, and it is time that we return the favor and nurture it. A beautiful healthy planet will continue to lead us to be beautiful, healthy people, which will support happiness, creativity, and our overall well being on our home we call Earth.”
