How To Not Be (Completely) Depressed About Climate Change by Sarah Lazarovic

I just ran across Sarah Lazarovic's beautifully hand-drawn and poignantly true, illustrated infographic "How To Not Be (Completely) Depressed About Climate Change" on YesMagazine's website.

The title grabbed me, because... let's face it: climate change is not the most uplifting conversation. Focusing long and hard on our planetary decline (especially in the age of deniers and folks that disregard facts) certainly can bring a person down.

Sarah has some good food for thought--and humor to go along the way. Click this link to see the 4-panel infographic in its entirety. My favorite line: "Be bold, but not a buzzkill."

Lazarovic's infographic also ties to another YesMagazine article that includes a book excerpt from Charles Einstein's book Climate: A New Story. The book excerpt (also published January 2019) entitled "Why the Climate Message isn't Working" with the title tagline: "Threats of global catastrophe won't move people to action. Only the heart can inspire zeal.

And...upon digging this up, I ran across some of her other work, that also is good food for thought!

The Buyerarchy of Needs (which is on the home page of her website, ) and her book: A Bunch of Pretty Things I Did Not Buy
