The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac

From Three Worlds One Vision – ~ Guyana – Brazil – USA

Based on NOAA’s 140-year climate record, 2019 is the second-hottest year on Earth, after 2016. In their book, The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis (Knopf 2020), Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac, architects of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, remind us that we live in a critical decade. If we the people of Earth fail to attain our goal of halving our carbon emissions by 2030, it would be highly unlikely that we will attain net zero emissions by 2050.

They invite us “to take part in creating the future of humanity, confident that despite the seemingly daunting nature of the challenge, collectively we have what it takes to address climate change now” (xxi).

Montreal: Racial situations at play similar to those in the U.S.A. – By Yvonne Sam

Black Montreal has been fighting a pandemic that predates Covid 19—It is Racism by the SPVM.

By Yvonne Sam – A Montreal resident

According to Monnica Williams, a clinical psychologist and professor at the University of Ottawa in Canada, who studies African American mental health says, “Racism is traumatic for people of color.”  “Everything that you have to carry around anyway as a black person, to add onto it having to watch people in your community who’ve done nothing killed at the hands of people in power who will probably suffer few, if any, consequences”. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/24/magazine/racisms-psychological-toll.html.

Our screens and feeds are filled with feeds and images of Black Americans dying or being brutalized. Scores of killings answered with acquittals. Now, as a pandemic rages, Blacks in communities across the country disproportionally devastated by COVID-19 are now forced to bear witness to more deaths at the hand of racist policemen.        Continue reading
