A THREAD ON AVIATION & #ClimateBreakdown
Climate scientists & environmentalists have been highlighting the huge impact flying has on an individual's carbon footprint for decades, but the message hasn't sunk in, particularly with us Brits, who fly more than any other nation …
… A 2010 study carried out by the University of Surrey identified a sense of entitlement with regard to holiday travel. Even people willing to make eco-friendly adjustments at home are not willing to change air travel patterns …

Gather around everyone...it’s time for some very TRUE short stories morphed into a unbelievably one in the end.
I’ve grown up in a very mixed family and being a proud biracial kid.
But, let’s rewind to a lifetime ago where I wasn’t comfortable or was constantly questioned about “what are you”...
Just like any character in their story. I’ve had my own twist and turns in my life.

However, my experiences that always stood out always seem to involve my family.

Today I am going to try and cook for the first time since I was paralyzed.

I used to cook most nights for me and The Wife. After Mass on Sundays, I would make brunch.

I made every holiday meal for 17 of our 18yrs together. I did the #Christmas baking.

I started cooking as a child. I grew up in a chaotic household. Great politics but a chronically ill mother. I was the oldest sibling & the maternal stand-in.

I became a vegetarian for political reasons at 14, so I had to learn how cook that diet cheaply since we were poor.

In college I cooked for everyone. I knew how to stretch $.When I was in the domestic Peace Corps I taught people how to cook with next to no money.

I love feeding people.
I think food is an evocation of love for many folks.

I haven't been able to cook since I was paralyzed.

I have some #NewYearsResolutions to share.

You all know I don't use foul language on here, but this iconic warrior trope seems a good place to start 2018.

I've spent 3yrs reporting on Trump's every egregious move. I'll still be doing that in 2018, but I'll also be focusing on women running for office.

Traditionally women have received less/worse coverage than men. That must change. Only news orgs/reporters can change this.

One of my #NewYearsResolutions
is to beat back #cancer.

In 2017 I didn't prioritize my time within the possibility of my death hovering. I must do that in 2018 and I would urge EVERYONE to live more like you have limited time rather than limitless time.

Focus, act, #resist.
