Franke James » What Can One Person Do, When 6.8 Billion Are Frying The Planet?

Franke James asks the question, What Can One Person Do, When 6.8 Billion Are Frying The Planet?”

What is the answer you ask?  For Franke, the answer was to put together an amazing set of graphics to educate and inspire.  I have included the first few drawings below and a link at the end to go see the rest.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Many thanks to the good people at 350.org for sharing this on their facebook page!
Thanks for reading!

For those who don’t make the jump, check out this checklist from Franke’s site:

How can YOU take action? What’s YOUR plan?

1. DOES YOUR CITY HAVE A PLAN? Use Google to find out if your region has aMitigation and Adaptation Plan for climate change, like Toronto and New Yorkhave. (And if they don’t, then press your local politicians to develop one!)

2. MAKE YOUR OWN PLAN. Develop your own personal Mitigation and Adaptation Plan. There are many actions each of us can take to protect ourselves and our property from floods, heat waves, power shortages, water shortages… etc. See the Resources below for ideas such as this one from the Institute for Catastrophic Loss ReductionHandbook for Reducing Basement Flooding.

3. TAP INTO ENVIRONMENTAL NETWORKS: Get the ball rolling by participating in environmental action, or financially supporting, these environmental organizations and others:

    • Franke,
      Thanks for taking the time to respond! I really enjoyed this piece and look forward to digging in to the rest of your offerings. Also, I think you’re on the right track. One person can do a lot if they only believe that they can and are willing to put their good intentions to work.
      Thank you,
      Chris
