“What Can I do about the Climate?”

“What Can I do about the Climate? “ is a commonly used question when understanding and combatting climate change. It’s also correct to ask ourselves “What can I do?” to create change and a movement to fight climate change.

Bill McKibben is among other things “fellow” of ‘The Sanders Institute’. This is his top list of things we all can do for the climate, published with permission from The Sanders Institute.

Bill McKibben in this video gives a few quick-fixes and solutions to the climate crisis:

Become less of an individual. Come together and push for solutions. — Bill McKibben

Bill McKibben and the Sanders Institute with the help of WeDontHaveTime echoing their message, all in our way tell the story of how we together can push for more climate action and climate positive solutions. As individuals, members of society, “less of individuals” (McKibben) and more as a collective , by ‘the power of many’ we can challenge business as usual and prove climate friendly action is the way forward.

Climate Action Short List

These actions and solutions according to Mr McKibben fall into either of these three broad categories:

  1. Go for 100 % renewable energy
  2. Keep carbon in the ground
  3. Divest from fossil fuels.
