Noel reminds me of my dear departed friend Pete Seeger in two ways - his determination never to sit on laurels, continuing to make and foster community-minded music, and his passion for societal betterment using all means at one's disposal, and at levels from global to hyperlocal. This newsletter with Jeanne Torrence Finley is helping spread that spirit and capacity. More on my time with Pete here: https://bit.ly/revkinsmusic
Zeke H and Andrew D are doing a solid service by wading through climate data and offering distillations and interpretations amid the online smog. I use their output like a sailor used a sextant to gauge a position using stars and a reliable clock. The more sights you take, the more likely you'll have a decent estimate of where you are. My Lines of position post is relevant: https://revkin.substack.com/p/lines-of-position-navigating-the-21-09-28
The insights emerging from Lissa's fine energy and climate reporting in the Catskills resonate far and wide. Hope you'll keep track and support financially if you can afford to do so.
Michael Thomas has been deep digging on a vital frontier - strategically amplified sources of inertia at the local level that can threaten climate progress even with tens of billions of dollars now in the pipeline for clean energy. I hope you'll join me in spreading and supporting his work.
History isn't always a solid guide to what comes next but it sure is a vital starting point for gauging what's new or simply sporadic. Glad Dan, a prediction maven if ever there was one, is helping provide that foundation on a regular basis here.
If you ever needed a cold-shower reality check on what is established about human perception and behavior, including the behavior of scientists, that's what Adam offers here. And delivered with self-effacing humor and clear explication, no less.
Much remains unknown about the role of arts in fostering climate and energy awareness and responses (just as is the case with journalism and more). But one thing is clear. This arena needs a lot of experimentation and approaches, which is why I'm following Nicole Kelner here and hope you do, as well.
