#Climatechange got you down? These 50 people will cheer you up. This month: I'm featuring @grist's 2019 #Grist50 Fixers here on my feed. There's more than one reason for you to feel good about the future! grist.org/grist-50/2019/
Meet Ploy Achakulwisut (@_aploy). She’s got climate #activism down to a science. Ploy dedicates her work — such as research connecting #AirPollution in the southwest U.S. to premature mortality — to furthering @climate awareness. #Grist50
What did it take for Robin Amer (@rsamer) to create an award-winning investigative #podcast on #environmental justice? Three years, more than 65 interviews, and one lawsuit against the @FBI. @thecitypod talks trash — and listeners love it. #Grist50
Yassamin Ansari (@yassaminansari) understands that #refugee crises, war, and #terrorism are driven and magnified by #climatechange. When she’s at the talks, nations and corporations agree. #Grist50
We’ve got a lot to learn about dirty #air, and Joshua Apte (@joshapte) is on the case. His goal: “To know as much as I can about the air that every human on this planet breathes” #Grist50
Greening a huge ride-share company might sound absurd. But Sam Arons (@smasmonium) thinks that @lyft can “Blaze a #climate trail for the rest of the transportation sector.” I hope so! #Grist50 grist.org/grist-50/2019/…
“Before, I was the only #conservative in a #liberal space. Now, I’m one of the only conservatives fighting for the #environment in the conservative space.” Benji Backer (@benjibacker) is a young #Republican who envisions a Green Old Party. #Grist50
Meet Jenny Bruso (@jenny_bruso). She's an outdoor influencer who's blazing trails for everybody. “We all have unique experiences,” she says. “And we all deserve to have space held for us.” @unlikelyhikers #Grist50
Quick: Who's the world's biggest landowner? Molly Burhans (@MollyAHBurhans) knows it's the #Catholic church so she and @Good_Lands are building the digital maps the #church needs to make smart #ecological decisions #Grist50 grist.org/grist-50/2019/…
“It starts with people, and it starts with ag policy that lets people own their own land.” Meet Sarah Carlson (@hmgrwn1). She’s planting the seeds for a #rural renaissance. #Grist50 grist.org/grist-50/2019/…
Francesca Chaney noticed most restaurants promoting plant-based #sustainable living targeted elites - So she founded @SolSips and feeds the people at her #vegan café. #Grist50 grist.org/grist-50/2019/…
