Amplify the Call

by Sep 16, 20180 comments

The historic and inspiring Global Climate Action Summit, @GCAS2018 closed yesterday with a strong Call to Action to “step up ambition”, chart a clear path towards a zero-carbon future and to empower grassroots climate action. So let’s work together to amplify this call.https://www.globalclimateactionsummit.org/call-to-action/ 
We can do this.  It is our Great Work.




“The Great Work before us, the task of moving the modern industrial civilization from its present devastating influence on the Earth to a more benign mode of presence, is not a role we have chosen. It is a role given to us, beyond any consultation with ourselves. We did not choose. We were chosen by some power beyond ourselves for this historical task. Yet we must believe that those powers that assign our role must in that same act bestow upon us the ability to fulfill this role. We must believe that we are cared for and guided by these same powers that bring us into being.” 

– Thomas Berry, The Great Work
