    ...pledges is that you're more likely to keep them going.  My daily LTE is an example of that; after three years it's now a positive addiction, and if I don't write a climate letter I get cranky.

    I'm glad that there are other people focusing on other ways to make our lives better, and I donate money in a lot of directions — but my own daily/weekly/monthly work is all about climate change (unless there's an election going on).

    Good diary, John Crapper!

      was part of my process of realization in this regard. I was and still am very impressed by your dedication.   When      I first started blogging on this site I did it under the name Road Dog and I was all over the place.  It was hard to stay focused. As a result, I completely unplugged for a while and focused on my personal project (the book) which in its essence is an environmental secular religion (a new consciousness).  It is my attempt to motivate.  I'm already successful as far as I'm concerned because it serves to motivate me.   It is my attempt to create an enduring passionate, zealous, evangelical type dedication to the problem in an edgy, satirical, humorous, provocative, way.  

      I'm going to try and focus on things beyond politics and interface with it only when it directly contributes to my efforts with the climate.  

      If we really want to straighten out all this crap we really need to think about shit - Holy Shit.
