    I feel that people don’t care enough to take the steps needed to reverse climate change and make the earth a better place. I hope we can get more people into the movement and fix the planet.

    I agree completely, but have some reservations about the effectiveness of changing minds in the absense of a threat that people can see as immediate.

    I’m concerned that the American public won’t take it very seriously.

    I have been fighting for this cause since 1978, its good to see the mass mobilization of the younger generation.

    I have worked in the so-called “environmental movement” for almost two decades and I have been frustrated with the schizophrenic approach of supposed experts who claim to understand the seriousness of the problem yet tell their constituents to change their light bulbs or “drive less.”


    It is a great relief to see the climate crisis laid out so clearly and dramatically along with a step-by-step plan to address it. I look forward to getting more involved in TCM!

    Media influence and lack of participation by the media in spreading the truth

    I’m glad to see the dire situation laid out that will be attributable to climate change. It has seemed to only be known by those who’ve read books like the Long Emergency. The idea of a WWII style of mobilization is new to me, and I like it. Still, I question whether it would work in this time, with such fractiousness in the U.S. government and citizenry. With technology, it could work even better – but it has to resonate with the silent majority.

    I was particularly enthused about how succinct and intelligent the document was. The Australian government have paid firms to produce multiple reports on sustainability and climate change and all that comes out of it is a status report – where we’re at now – and a vague indication of what should be done in the future, with no concrete actions suggested. This document, however, lays out a meaningful path forward, and I think that’s extremely important when trying to communicate these concepts to the wider public.

    I am a 42 year old attorney who has engaged in too many progressive initiatives to list. But I will state this…after having won several progressive legal, political and policy battles against the plutocrats…this is THE campaign I could really get behind.

    This article is helping me understand the power of emergency mode and the necessity for entering it—and the necessity for acknowledging the difficult feelings involved.

    I am a Nigeria citizen leaving in Cote d Ivoire as a Climate Leader, and would like to see some kind of movement/organization like this happening in Cote d Ivoire context. I’m not really sure how I can help with your project given my citizenship. But I also would be interested in connecting Cote d Ivoire organizations to your work and introducing it to groups which I currently have connections with.

    Most of what I read I already knew. I need to either get started as an active activist or go to school to learn something that will help.

    The analogy that humans are 90% chimpanzee and 10% bee really stayed with me.

    I really appreciate the practical tone of the paper. It was warming and I felt understood by the sections dealing with people’s emotional stages when learning about the climate crisis. I’m also left hopeful that there is a different future possible for us.

    As a Haida / I have felt/ thought and believed that this is like the fire underground that burns for years before coming above ground and finally being noticed as being what it has been for years/ for FN across the world this has been a crisis

    As part of my candidacy, I have stated that I am opposed to projects that harm the health of people, food sources, or the environment.

    This was sad that not everybody care about climate change as a great threat to our environment

    I’m studying environmental health and now in the middle of research about air pollution in the community and I really concern about that so I’d like to help

    This is what I’ve been looking for. You are taking the necessary steps and I’d like to help.
