Sometimes the climate change news is too much to bear and I have to take deep breaths and eat a lot of ice cream and go for a long run and try not to furrow my brow so much that I turn into a giant raisin.
Sometimes I can’t even read climate change stories for fear of falling down into the dark pit of environmental gloom that I call The Mean Greens. But I just listened to tonight’s episode of Ideas with Tim Flannery, and although it made my heart constrict in parts, it also made me hope. And doodle.
Only been on the job a few months, but learning quite a lot.
If you can’t think of anything to get the dad who has everything (x7), may I suggest a card? Designed these for the David Suzuki Foundation and all proceeds go to their awesome programs!
