    Hi Jonathan. Thanks for replying and posting your comment on Climateyou. You are absolutely right. Artists, writers, musicians and all other creative folk should tap into the incredible scenario of the present and communicate their take on global warming to the world. We will check out your website and your writings and perhaps we can help spread the word and your name via our blog or other ClimateYou social media.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Hi George and Abby,

    My name is Jon, a climate activist and writer. I like what I’ve read about your organization, and I’d like to know how I can contribute!

    The climate crisis is obviously the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced, but I think it is also the most inspiring — yet there seems to be a paucity of good literature on the subject at the moment. I’m not talking the realm of nonfiction; I’m talking about stories. Good, compelling stories, whether fictional or not. The world is ending around us, but where are all the great epics to hold back the sea? It’s kind of bizarre that there hasn’t been more written about climate change from a fictional perspective.

    I decided to fill the gap, and I set out to write the novelization of climate change. I took all the science, the political strife, and the apocalyptic imagery and turned it into a narrative that I think could change climate discourse for the better. If we’re going to solve this crisis, we can’t leave it to the scientists alone — everyone needs to come together on this, and artists and writers are at the forefront of change. I want to create an institution for sharing climate stories and art, whether it’s a protest song, a painting, or really form of expression that climate change has inspired. It’s time to bring artists into the fold.

    Anyway, that’s what my plan is. It sounds like your project aligns with that goal quite nicely. If you would like to read some of my work, check out my website on Medium: https://medium.com/@albatrossity

    And if you’d like to learn more about my novel, please feel free to email me, or you can check it out at this link: http://www.amazon.com/Age-Suicide-J-R-Kirsch/dp/0997469307/

    My best,
    Jon Kirsch
