Hey there world-savers, and welcome back to one5c. We’re only a couple weeks away from COP28, the annual international mass meetup on climate action, and the pregame status reports are piling up. This year is on track to be the hottest on record, analysts have dubbed the current roster of existing fossil-fuel projects as “insanity,” and China kinda-sorta knows what to do about its methane problems. We’ll be talking more about what these ginormous conferences full of bigwigs mean for you—dedicated world-savers that you are—in the coming weeks, but the important thing to do right now is channel all the gloomy buildup into fuel for our collective fire.
For starters, let’s give good ol’ Joe the big ol’ “NO” on a new potentially climate-crushing project, and then join Glorie on a visit to southern Nevada, where water-saving technology might also help trim emissions. As ever, if you like what you’re reading, please share us with everyone you know. —Corinne
