#Repost @iamnikkireed ・・・ Please please take a second to read this post! It's five minutes out of your Sunday that could help you make a difference, THE DIFFERENCE, the world needs!!! This week is by Jen VanStrander, who is a campaign Fellow and student at Rochester Institute of Technology. ❤ "Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. It affects everyone. But it disproportionately affects lower-income people, and people who live in places which are not rich in natural resources, such as Indigenous people living on reservations. If we shift our focus to renewable energy sources, we will eliminate the need for things like crude oil pipelines. By putting an effective price on carbon emissions, companies will be economically incentivized to decrease their output of carbon and other greenhouse gasses, and switch to using more renewable sources of energy. This is why I view carbon pricing as a one-and-done way to prevent future pipelines from being installed. I joined the #PutAPriceOnIt campaign because I want to preserve the land and, as Jared Yazzie would say, #SaveWhatWeHaveLeft. The Earth is our mother, the fresh water is her veins. Let’s work together and treat her better. Let’s put a price on it!" - Years Of Living Dangerously
