Make investments for a better world

I have done some easy things to help make the world better. Now to tackle a difficult thing.

One of the difficult things to do is to invest my time, energy and money. Time to learn about problems facing the oceans, water, land, air, plants and animals. Time to learn about solutions.

I need to invest my energy into joining a group and becoming active.

Many international, national, state, county and local groups are trying to save the world we live in. Examples include The Ocean Cleanup, Iowa Audubon, PSR/Iowa, EHS, Iowa Citizens Climate League, Good Neighbor Iowa and 100 Grannies.

I need to invest what little monetary resources I have to help others to develop solutions and educate and stop the destruction of decades-old legislation that protected parks, water and land.

I will learn. I will join and participate. I will donate my time, energy and money. I will sign petitions on issues that threatened the land, water and air.

I need to start now. There is no Planet B.
