Here are some of my notes from Fox’s talk:
Alternative electrical power is now as cheap as conventional electricity. He recommends these websites: solutionsgrassroots.com, mydomino.com.
“We’re all going to have to eat a lot less meat.” (But grass-fed beef actually helps the earth, because the roots of grass will only be as long as the green blades above the soil. If the top of the grass keeps getting clipped – by a cow’s teeth – part of the root system will die, returning carbon to the earth. And that’s good!) (Similarly, a compost pile stores carbon.)
“Of all the things we have to do to save the earth, the easiest is elect Bernie Sanders president!” (“Hillary is like the New Coke: there’s brand loyalty, but it just doesn’t taste right.”)
“I’m a filmmaker, not an organizer. I can’t organize my sock drawer – in fact, I don’t have a sock drawer!”
