I'm working on a video on climate change and it's pretty doomer pilled, so I'd like to add suggestions for people who want to take action on climate change. Trouble is I'm struggling to think of things to recommend.
I recently saw this article which says
Blockades, lobbying, media campaigns, and other forms of advocacy grounded in Indigenous rights have stopped or delayed nearly 1.6 billion tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year, or nearly 25% of the combined emissions of the United States and Canada, the Indigenous Environmental Network and Oil Change International conclude
So pipeline blockades and other land defender, water protector, and indigenous solidarity work seems a good suggestion.
I recently listened to the Working Class History podcast on the green bans, when the builders' union in Australia would refuse to do construction projects that would harm the environment or community. The labor movement has incredible potential to stop climate change but it's in such a weak state. So recommending labor organizing to stop climate change seems more wishful thinking than realistic suggestion at the moment. I will suggest it, though, because hopefully this will take off at some point, and the potential is huge.
There's Extinction Rebellion but I'm not sure if it's effective. Perhaps that could change and maybe I'm just being cynical. I'm interested what others here think of it.
Taken as a whole this is a short and weak list of suggestions. Who has recommendations?
(I'd also like to include learning resources on the connection between capitalism and environmental harm, if you have suggestions, but try to stick to things suitable for newbies and non-academics.)
