    Climate Reality Leadership Corps training by Al Gore in Chicago

    At the end of July, I will participate in the Climate Reality Leadership Corps Training in Chicago. Climate Leaders are activists who have taken part in this leadership and communications training lead by former Vice President Al Gore and the Climate Reality Project. Climate Leaders are expected to perform ten acts of leadership, which could include organising an event, speaking at a seminar or writing a column in a newspaper. I’m thrilled and happy for the opportunity to attend the training, join the Corps and keep volunteering in the field of climate change. My travel wouldn’t be possible without help from supporters, and to them I want to express my most sincere gratitude.

    Adventures in Istanbul: Becoming a Climate Leader

    About a year ago, I received an email from Warren Miller Entertainment asking if I’d become an ambassador for the I Am Pro Snow initiative. WME had partnered with The Climate Reality Project to spread awareness of what climate change means for all of us who love snow. I have to admit, when I first got the email I was afraid I wasn’t really qualified to take this on. But after thinking about it more, I decided to say yes. After all, this was an issue I care about and becoming an ambassador would be a great way to help, even if I had no clue how just yet.

    What Climate Change Means for Our Health

    We all know carbon pollution is driving climate change and supercharging extreme weather events like Superstorm Sandy, Typhoon Bopha, and multiyear droughts around the world. All of which end up costing us hundreds of billions each year in bills for reconstruction and relief, rising insurance rates, and household repair expenses, to name only a few. What many people don’t realize, though, is that climate change is also taking a real toll on our health.

    Quiet Climate Milestones

    Throughout my life, there have been poets and poems I’ve carried with me everywhere, like a briefcase that’s always packed and sitting by the front door. And while it might sound strange, I’ve found myself coming back to Auden in the past few weeks after two things happened in the climate world. First, it was the European Union effectively giving up on its emission trading scheme (ETS) for regulating carbon pollution. Then it was the news that atmospheric carbon levels had reached a new record concentration of 400 parts per million (ppm).
