The moment is now

The Artdog Quote-Pairing of the Week

This image consists of a quote by Hal Elrod: "The moment you take responsibility for everything in your life is the moment you can change anything in your life."
This image is a graphic that shows three versions of a battery symbol. the one on the left is full of a picture of wetlands biodiversity. The one in the middle is only half-filled with the same picture. The one on the right shows an empty battery symbol like when a battery is dead. The words surrounding this image say: "We are not powerless against climate change. Stop draining wetlands."

When must we do something about climate change? The moment is now.

I kicked off last month with a video about climate change refugees. It featured a call to proactive action. This month, I’m pairing quotes about being proactive in one’s life with quotes about climate change. It’s not too late to mitigate the effects–but the moment is now.

IMAGE CREDITS: Many thanks to Hal Elrod for the quote about taking responsibility, and to Tunza Eco-Generation for the quote about not being powerless. The Featured image is courtesy of Greentumble. The article that goes with it is pretty cool too. Thanks, guys!

Taking responsibility

The Artdog Quote of the Week

There is a certain amount of “ownership” of problems that is needed, when a person takes on this important business of being an informed citizen and voter (I hope you are!).

Weighty decisions come into our hands, and with our single votes each of us drops another pebble into one or another bucket that may just tip the balance for all. But this means we must make the choice to pay attention, to study the questions our society faces, and to do the diligence that will help us separate charlatans from true prophets.
