Hey team, and welcome back to one5c. Part of being in a climate-active community is taking a minute to appreciate the real wins. Pausing a “carbon mega bomb” fossil fuel project on the Gulf Coast the way the Biden administration did last week deserves its moment of celebration. It’s important to go a little emoji happy (🎉🥳🎊🕺) because victories prove to us that being informed and engaged matters. It’s also important because so many green promises get broken so often it’s hard not to let it drag you down.
That’s why we spend a lot of time helping y’all spot the things we have the power to change and separating performative green-ness from the real deal. And this past week gave us plenty of both to chew on. —Corinne
