Climate Action - Margaret Meade

You're here to save the planet.  Me too. 

Hello!  Welcome to Tree Street, a Climate Action Platform for individuals, organizations, and local communities.  I am Mike Dickhout, the founder.

Like so many, we've been inspired by Greta Thunberg.  Specifically, one of her frequent keen observations led to Tree Street's inception:

 "To do your best is no longer enough.  
We must all do the seemingly impossible."

 

As usual, she's spot on.  Our current approaches to climate action are not working.   To do the seemingly impossible, we must do things differently.  

We need new, more powerful paradigms, tools, and projects.  As a platform, Tree Street is one place where people and organizations can meet, collaborate, develop, and execute on these new, more powerful paradigms, tools, and projects. 

Our Mission is to connect you with all the people, organizations, community groups, knowledge, resources, tools, and funding you need to maximize the impact of your own series of planet-saving projects. 

As a community, we'll help each other grow and compound both our individual powers and our collective impact ~ relentlessly ~ until the world is safe. 

Our Vision is for our members, their organizations, and their projects to restore the world to a stable, life-sustaining climate and biosphere.

REPLACE: We must replace fossil fuel use with renewable power ~ in our daily lives and homes, in our communities, businesses, and industries ~ globally.  Net-zero is not enough.  We must be as near-zero as possible.

REMOVE:  We must remove at least forty years of carbon emissions in order to return atmospheric carbon to a level conducive to a thriving biosphere.  This is approximately 350 parts per million or less.  (The planet was at 350ppm in the 1980s.  In March 2021, we hit 420 ppm for the first time).  

RESTORE: We must restore and protect global and local ecosystems ~ from the oceans to the Amazon, Congo, Indonesian, and Siberian forests to your own local flora, fauna, rivers, streams, and lakes.

These three core goals are actionable and achievable.  In fact, if you are reading this, you are already (or on the cusp of) pursuing at least one of the three core goals ~ individually or as part of an organization.
