Election 2016, the morning after

Environmental Advocacy Under a Trump Presidency

Image result for trump & climate changeThe slow motion wreck that was election 2016 has finally ended, the smoke has cleared, and now we find ourselves in a very strange place. Not where we wanted to be.

We should take the time to mourn the loss we feel, embrace the foreboding sense of fear for what lay ahead. When I first accepted last Tuesday that Trump is our next president, I cried.

But I am done with that.

Now I plan my next steps. I will not be cowed. I am ready to fight for that in which I believe.

Now more than ever: fight the good fight

Our mission at GlobalWarmingisRealTDS Environmental Media, and PlanetWatch is to nurture a better narrative for an environmentally and socially sustainable future on this planet.

Trump’s presidency casts a long, dark shadow over the promise of the Paris Agreement and the goals of entrepreneurs, business leaders, advocates, scientists, thinkers and people from all walks of life and from all political persuasions who understand what is at stake.

The fight just got harder. My colleagues and I are more determined than ever to push ahead.

I encourage all of you, to do the same.

We all have gifts, talents, and strengths inside us. When we offer ourselves to service with a sense of love and gratitude, we can help make the world a better place. We need each other to remain strong, determined to fight back against hate, greed, intolerance, and ignorance.

I am 58. Most of my years are behind me. But by God, the best are yet to come.

With gratitude, determination, and love –

Thomas Schueneman – editor and founder, GlobalWarmingisReal; TDS Environmental Media; PlanetWatch
