*Waking up to the climate crisis*

It's finally happening, the world is waking up to the climate crisis. Oil
companies are in court for lying
truth is coming out about climate breakdown <https://350.org/science/>, and
millions are standing up for truth and action. All this is thanks to you —
everyday people who care about our future  — and are doing everything we
can. It is only with our eyes wide open, that we have the opportunity to
rebuild our world.

   seem most important to you. Without you and me, they are nothing — our
   participation is crucial.
   - Live as sustainably as you can. Reduce your consumption, fly less or
   not at all, switch to renewables. It might sound difficult, but it will
   lead to a happier, healthier life. Top Ten Things You Can Do About
   Climate Change <https://www.goodwork.ca/act#now>
   - Participate in nonviolent strikes and protests. It is perhaps the most
   visible part of the movement — an important way to let the public,
   governments and business hear our voice. Strikes continue every Friday in
   thousands of locations around the world. The next Global Strike is planned
   for Friday November 29. Learn more, join a strike or start your own:
