Tell your federal representatives to reintroduce the TREES Act. This bill directs the Department of Energy (DOE) to establish a grant program for states, local governments, Indian tribes, and other entities to facilitate tree planting projects that reduce residential energy consumption. Under the program, DOE must award grants to facilitate the planting of at least 300,000 trees annually in residential neighborhoods.

Good research. But don't just doomscroll, do something about it.

  1. Vote, volunteer, and fund raise for viable environmental candidates.
  2. Our personal choices DO matter when we act together - have less kids (if you live in a wealthy country), go vegan, make your next car an EV, divest from polluting corporations.
  3. Get your family, friends, and community to join you in the above.
