Love Goes to Building on Fire
Hi! I’m Sarah. Minimum Viable Planet is my weeklyish newsletter about climateish stuff, and how to keep it together in a world gone mad. I’m always curious to know what you think.
P.S. I’m not kidding about Climate Boost the Economy. I’m going to make fetch happen.
Other language stuff to be mindful of:
The “we are the virus” stuff is like one a half steps away from ecofascism and I genuinely worry about the folks I see toeing that line. Yes the air is very clean right now and the wild animals in the parks and the cities are very cute but mass death is not a climate plan.
Apparently people still need to hear this, so 🗣🗣🗣A PANDEMIC IS NOT A CLIMATE SOLUTION🗣🗣🗣

And yes it’s tough, but we can doooo this!!
Also, this. Whoa!
This is big. @CityofVancouver council just passed policy that all new buildings will not be able to heat space or water using fossil fuels effective Jan 2022. Huge step forward on implementing #ClimateEmergency plan.
It passes! So glad to see climate action move forward amid #covid19. Very grateful to the city staff who worked on this, and everyone who wrote to Council in support. #climateemergency #vanpoli #zeroemissionbuildings https://t.co/dCUswNoc6P https://t.co/GbBT3jjCwr

I feel like my hero Missy Elliot missed an opportunity to make the #cooloffchallenge about cooling down the planet…but I want to hijack every meme to make it about climate change.
Hope you are happy and healthy! Thanks for reading.
Have a great week,
