Have you ever found yourself in a conversation that was going really well, so well in fact the other person seemed to like you, like, a lot? Like:

Or:

And then all of a sudden, the topic of climate change comes up, and you’re in a struggle.

Like, a MAJOR struggle.  You try to get out. But you can’t.

the conversation gets frustrating

even hostile

The vibe goes from “Yes yes yes!”

 to “no no no”

in two simple words:

climate change.

 

and all of a sudden the person hates you

and their friends hate you

Even if your position is supported by facts, they say ‘wrong’.

 

Well I’m about to tell you about a free Climate Advocate Training you can attend that will equip you with the tools you need

to turn a no about climate change

into a “yes”:

Are you excited??

Are you paying attention to what I’m saying??

Because I’m about to give you the answer to any cocktail party’s climate change debate ails. Yeah!!

Here’s the info:

So please join, and turn those no no no’s

  

into a healthy conversation, like the ones you have with your dog

or your hamster

and waltz out of those cocktail parties feeling like a happy mammal who actually changed someone’s point of view

Howdy folks! How in sam heck are ya?

I woke up today feeling like a man with a plan.

I just hoped this one worked better than the last plan:

We all remember how that affected my reputation..

My friends were like:

So I decided to hatch another plan..

and had a bite to eat

Had some coffee

High fived my cat

worked on the life plan

and then I decided to myself pretty

I mean, real pretty

and then I got on my bike

went to the gym to work the pelvis

and the glutes

And then with a little more pelvis work, I felt realllll good about life

I mean REALLY GOOD!

So what is this plan you ask??  Ever since the Climate Change Conference at Loyola I’ve been thinking about how to integrate nature into people’s lives more, because that is a crucial ingredient for getting people to care about the environment more.  And to maintain suspense, I’ll leave it at that. If you have ideas on how you think this should be done, please leave comments below.
