Mission Statement and Measurable Action Plan …..

The Primary Directive of Earthlobbyist is to meet people who deny climate change so we can talk with them about their beliefs, where they live and vote.

This can be accomplished only by physical travel of live streaming. People who display symptoms of Climate Change Denial Syndrome will not voluntarily participate ina conversation, or initially be open to changing their position.  An Earthlobbyist will visit  a public meeting, coffee-shop, beauty salon, diner, bar, house of worship, sports event, fair, book store, community event or school and just talk with people.

The ideal scenario is moving into a community for a period of time, living. shopping, eating and participating with people who live in an  environmentally isolated location. These communities are known as  “red states” due to their GOP allegiance to environmentally destructive legislation, and are likely supported by industry that is environmentally unsustainable. People in these communities have chosen allegiance to their families and community over larger geopolitical issues, even though their lack of responsibility may ultimately destroy the belief systems and lifestyles they are protecting.

For this I  seek sponsorship and others who will join me making this same commitment

The first required  step to being an EarthLobbyist is making a  commitment to learning, so you can speak knowledgeably, with confidence and respect, about environmental science from organizations including:

Union of Concerned Scientists  or

Citizens Climate Lobby,

350 dot org   or

Yale Environment 360

To be  an Earthlobbyist  means  that you will do one or more of the following

  1. Print, sign and mail (or fax) personal letters to elected representatives who vote against the future of the Earth.  You may copy letter templates, maybe  adding a word or two of your own.
  2. Travel to a community where people do not understand the scientific reality of our planet and talk about this. In the USA, a majority of people who vote for anti-environmental senators and representatives in the south and mid-west USA suffer the majority of the effects of severe weather.  This is a very obvious truth that can be supported with scientific data
  3. E-mail, text, populate an elected representatives website or social media presence
  4. Make a phone call for with your family or friends once a week.
  5. Make a video, tag and describe it ( for improved  search quality)  then post it on YouTube and other portals you prefer,
  6. Read a statement into the record  at a town meeting.
  7. Go door to door hand delivering climate change information as a means to start the conversation. Remember people who deny climate change feel they have no power, have been politically misinformed,  or do not feel the problem will effect them directly
  8. Teach children about ways they can be agents of change, which will hep them dispel fears about climate change. Many young people feel a sense of despair and hopelessness about climate issues, wrongly believing the only thing they can do is change consumer behavior
  9. Read about why we need to Plant trees
  10. To reduce fix climate change 1.2 Trillion new trees must be planted 
  11. Join  the One Trillion Tree Challenge 
  12. Write to leaders and embassies of countries that are actively destroying  forests
