A Message from Earth

 

 

A PENGUIN with a Dream

My name is Earth, and I was running for Congress. At least until recently, but having to drop out of the race doesn’t mean that I am abandoning my mission.

As a kid, my family had to leave our home in Antarctica due to loss of sea ice. So, we moved to the US, where I was able to grow up with a grassy yard, a white picket fence and a house that wasn’t melting. You know, the American dream. 

My parents wanted me to pursue a career in law, so naturally I did the opposite (sorry, Pam and Steve). I studied environmentalism, working to protect others from the injustices I was all too familiar with. Along the way, I got to know many leaders in office as I fought for better environmental policies—and gained quite the reputation for my charm and political savvy, if I do say so myself. (Being a people-penguin definitely pays off).

Now, as I watch our planet skate further onto thin ice, it’s time for me to step up.

Stand with Earth

We're in crisis mode, people.

The climate is changing. Oceans are becoming more plastic than water. Land is becoming more concrete than jungle. Parts of the country are literally on fire. And that’s just the tip of the melting iceberg.

So what’s my game plan?

Earth’s Platform

 

You get a job! And you get a job! And you get a job!

This country needs a complete transition from coal and natural gas to renewables—and I don’t mean your streaming subscriptions. I’m talking clean sources of energy like solar, wind, and geothermal.

Renewable energy employed 10.3 million people around the world in 2017. For a nice comparison, that’s like the entire state of North Carolina. And just like my smoked-fish obsession, the clean energy industry is growing every year. Wind turbine technicians make a median of $53,880, while electrical engineers in the industry can make over $80,000 annually. Happy planet, happy bank account, amirite?

Plus, these energy sources can help keep our nation safe. DIY energy means we’ll no longer rely on dirty fossil fuels or send our troops overseas to fight for oil. Suns over guns.

By encouraging businesses and cities to transition to clean energy, we can create millions of new jobs for Americans, promote national security, and help our planet keep its cool.

A Clean Bill of Health

Breathing polluted air has a serious impact on our health. It’s been linked to asthma, lung cancer—even premature death. I can go 20 minutes underwater without oxygen, and this still scares me, people!

Speaking of water, have you seen our oceans lately? They’re filled with bottle caps and balloons. It’s like every teenager in America had their birthday party in the ocean. I’ve seen more plastic bottles than bottlenose dolphins in there.

Clean air and water shouldn’t be expensive luxuries—that’s what chunky sneakers are for. But unfortunately, most environmental hazards place the biggest burden on low-income communities. Individuals living in high-poverty areas are more likely to live near a polluting facility and less likely to have health insurance. That’s bonkers.

We need policies that will protect our lungs, our atmosphere, and our water, too. That’s why I’m going to continue fighting for healthier communities for us all.
