Climate Grief = Love
- May 29, 2020 12:45 pm GMT
I'm mixing it up a bit today with a quick 5-minute podcast episode called "Climate Grief = Love".
I talk about:
- Why it's not only natural but rational to experience these feelings.
- Where they may ultimately be coming from (love).
- A key takeaway and new lens through which to view them.

Hope you enjoy!

More on that here in "Coronavirus and Climate Change: 10 Key Similarities, Differences, and Lessons" if you're interested.
Be well. Stay safe. And much love,

According to Robert Jensen - we're prepping for the wrong thing. It's not about whether we should use renewables instead of fossil fuels or EVs instead of ICE cars. No. We should be preparing ourselves - for those of us that survive - for what..
