Why Optimism and Creativity (Not Doom) Will Save the Planet

May 18, 2020

My friend Katie Patrick's 2020 TEDx talk just posted to YouTube, "Why Optimism and Creativity (Not Doom) Will Save the Planet"

Watch it on YouTube here.

Think "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", + climate. DON'T PANIC.

Think Project Drawdown + hip personality.

Whether you watch the talk or not, I wanted you to know that Katie's work has greatly influenced me over the last 3 years.

Every time I open up Katie's book "How to Save the World" I get a vision of life beyond. If you're looking to acknowledge and move past the "doomsday" climate trap, Katie is the authority. If you're already there, congrats... forward this to a friend who is stuck on climate change doom.

Katie writes: "We need a beautiful vision for a future we can believe in. After 20 years of hearing people's "I have a nightmare" story about climate, plastic, pollution, oil, and ecosystems, I've hardly ever heard anyone's "I have a dream" speech for the Earth."

Go, Katie!


I write a weekly newsletter highlighting the AirMiners community and carbon removal industry.

Every week you’ll get insider perspective and community stories from the cutting edge of carbon removal.

The purpose of this newsletter is to accelerate the carbontech industry by speeding up connections, progress, and coordination. It's ideal for people working in carbon removal already, or beginners who want one individual's perspective. People curious about carbon removal are encouraged to sign up and see what sticks.
