How could we design an ecological experience in Ann Arbor that might have this effect?
The founder of Signal tried to develop an experience that would change how participants see the natural world and compel them to act on climate & ecological preservation.
Last year I honed my latke recipe, I'm making it again tonight! https://samfirke.com/2020/01/06/traditional-and-vegan-herbed-potato-latkes/
Happy Hanukkah 🕎
New post: making rubber soles from a bicycle tire to sew onto footed pajamas. It's PPE for toddlers!
Took my hungry kids to McDonalds drive-thru, ordered only fries b/c all the main dishes have meat.
Then checked online later and the fries have meat added to them 😡
McDonalds fries in other countries? No meat. Burger King, Wendy's fries? No meat.
Just these dumb McDonalds fries. That weren't even that good.
I finished the novel "A Children's Bible" - and felt the need to apologize to my children. I would say it's a novel about climate dystopia except, if an catastrophic future is likely, do you call that dystopia or reality?
It was good though. If anyone else has read, I'd love to discuss with someone - I'm betting I missed a lot of bible imagery and am wondering about the ending for the adults.

Good that they call out "the “voter-consumer” problem—the idea that voting in the presidential election is the stuff of our political identities, an act of self-expression that we exercise once every few years before leaving the rest of the work to the adults in elected office."
sometimes it's easier to change yourself than the world
