Years of Living Dangerously

I am so pumped about this segment of Years of Living Dangerously featuring Citizen’s Climate Lobby narrated by Bradley Whitford.

Years of Living Dangerously takes Hollywood’s storytellers and activists and paints a picture of those affected by the dangers of climate change.

Citizen’s Climate Lobby, as I’ve mentioned before, is the climate activist organization that I have proudly been part of for 2 years. This video sheds light on the strategies key to CCL success: relationship building, bi-partisan cooperation, and finding common ground.

I know the video is long, but I HIGHLY recommend viewing it today. Especially because of the rumors that the Trump administration will be pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

The New Yorker featured Senator Dianne Feinstein from California regarding her self-proclaimed most important work of her career: exposing U.S. torture practices and fighting the C.I.A. and the White House. She is eighty-one, senator since 1992, the eldest sitting member of congress and is not slowing down.
