The Gift of Climate Change, a grounded, visionary take on addressing our greatest threat presented by Michael Stewart, founder of LightHawk and Climate Keepers Lose your blues around climate change. There are major breakthroughs coming online that most have not yet heard about - and that hold great promise for turning things around. Enough good news to move past despair and into faith and action, remedies for paralysis. We are going to stop climate change with "shovels and shouts." From sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) to carbon farming, we are on our way to a green future. Still, in this tug-o-war for the future of the earth, every hand is needed on the rope.
