XOES : 4 Line Stories about how Your Eco Actions Help Stop some of the Climate Change Monsters


Share

I would like to write a little love story for you about how an environmental action that you have taken will help save someone from a climate change monster.

To get a story, post an eco action [or eco choice] that you have taken on your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Put #XOEarth in your post so I will see it.

Then I will write a little XOES story and post it in a comment to you.

For all the life, Stele

PS: If you prefer to post your eco action on my Facebook timeline or XOEarth.org/XOES, that's cool. If you want to write little love XOEarth Stories for your eco peeps with me or on your own, checkout XOEarth.org/XOES 'How To Write An XOES [XOEarth Story]' below.


Climate Change Monster Future Stories ::

Bahtia ::

Bahtia has climbed up into her favorite tree to sing a song about how much she super likes her friend Krinlo. Because you have mostly walked and have been driving your neat-little-fuel-efficient-car as little as possible to work and to play, you have saved 18 square meters of Bahtia's and Krinlo's home for another year. They are "so digg'n this mighty fine life". Thahh-de-thahh, thanks to you.

Bruhntochi ::

Earth Lover, Sending you this note to thank you for saving my life. My name is Bruhntochi and I am an elephant that lives in the Serengheti.
I have a grrrreat time exploring the bush with my friends. We love to talk about love, play tag and make new trumpet songs. Even though we have challenges, my best friends and I have a blast.
Anyway, I think that your environmental actions over the next few months are going to be just what it takes to stop a Climate Change Monster named Ossilfu that could kill me. You see, Ossilfu is a Heatwave that wants to wreak havoc on the Serengheti this coming summer.
But thanks to you, because you have decided to eat more greens and carrots and beans, and less meat and animals, Ossilfu can't be as murderous as it wants to be. That's because eating more plant-based does not release as many greenhouse gases that heat up the Earth and makes the Climate Change Monsters.
And that's great, I mean, freak'n great!! Yesssss! Also, it's possible, although it's a long shot, that your actions will help totally defeat Ossilfu and keep it from even becoming a Heatwave at all. But, *wink* *wink*, for a better chance to slow down or defeat Ossilfu, I hope you'll even more plant-based. We'll see about that, right?
Oh, by the way, because you are eating a more plant-based diet, you are also going to slow down a Climate Change Monster named Durhorr that wants to mess with your town this coming summer. So really, it looks like you might be helping extend your lifetime too.
Anyway, big love to you for fighting Ossilfu by eating kindly.
For more fun, Bruhntochi the Elephant

Yummy Summer ::

+ Sweet One, Thanks for saving my life and making this a priceless yummy Summer day in day 2021! It would have been a climate change monster that was big and hot enough that only some of my bones would have been found in the choking ruble. As the wildfire was burning my body, I would have hoped that my exploding screams and tears from the excruciating and seemingly endless pain would be loud and wet enough to scare that wildfire away.
It would have been another of the intense climate change wild fires that was empowered by the very dry hot winds.
But instead, your donations to that environmental organization and its dedicated peeps were able to empower their work to get even more businesses and peeps to slow down their fossil fuel emissions. Yessssss, you helped keep that wind a little bit cooler so the trees, grass and soil in my neighborhood would not get so dry and hot.
Your donations helped slow down that wind a little so that climate change monster would be a little less angry. Thank you for helping keep some of that coal and gas in the ground. Your donations in 2019 and 2020 is just what was needed to help keep that wild fire from getting so big, or from getting started at all.
I wish I knew where you are, or even who you are. I feel like we probably know each other. We may have talked a few times, or even held hands, or maybe we are neighbors. Or maybe we have even lived together.
In any case, I hope that we get to hang out and have fun together under the trees that did not burn, thanks to you. Instead of having to experience that untimely brutal pain and dying, your donations gave me more time to soak up these truly delicious days. I gotta say, I love the green glow and tiny dancers made by the sunlight bouncing on the leaves.
Thanks a bunch, Me
PS: Just a wild guess here, but is it one of these organizations that you are going to donate to or carbon offsett with? SierraClub.org, 350.org, XOEarth.org, NRDC.org, EDF.org, Greenpeace.org, ClimateRealityProject.org, CarbonFund.org, NativeEnergy.com or SunriseMovement.org?

Shelbobby ::

Huge thanks to my peeps that are burning as little gasoline & jetfuel as possible this year to help slow down or stop Climate Monster *Shelbobby*. I am totally guessing that this cat 4-5 Hurricane nick-named *Shelbobby* will hit the US South and East coasts this summer-fall causing massive damage & 1000's of human and countless wildlife deaths. That is, if we don't go eco-logically big to stop it. Let's celebrate in December if we stop or slow down Climate Monster *Shelbobby*!

Do it for 'Jen Jen' and 'Kertie'. I am totally guessing they are two of the girls that will not make it through Climate Monster *Shelbobby* if a bunch of us don't burn less gasoline and jetfuel. Thanks in advance!!!

2 Other Beautiful ::

If you & I eat vegan to save this planet, I think we will meet & fall in love. It may happen this lifetime or when some of our atoms and molecules become part of 2 other beautiful people or species somewhere on this planet. XOEarth.org Stop #ClimateChange #Monster

Skywah and Trinna ::

Future Lover, If you and I eat mostly plant-based and help get our society to burn less fossil fuels to help save this hurting planet, I think we just might meet and fall in love and have some sweet, sweet time together. It may happen this lifetime, or, it may happen when some of our atoms and molecules become part of two other beautiful people or species somewhere else on this planet. I think in those days we might call ourselves *Skywah*, and *Trinna*. Love you in the future, Stele + XOEarth dat org Stop #ClimateChange #Monsters
For more love and fun, Stele

How To Write An XOES [XOEarth Story] ::

XOEarth Stories can be based on a person's environmental actions or choices that they have taken, or a future action or choice that a person promises to take.

However, we often don't know the exact positive *actual outcome story* that results from any specific environmental action. So instead, we can write a *possible outcome story* that might result from that environmental action, or that probably does result somewhere in the world as a result of someone else taking a similiar environmental action.

Nevertheless, a *possible outcome story* can be written using science, logic and intuition. Science and logic can helps guide the story creation via environmental peer reviewed published papers about our global biosphere, conservation biology, status of species and their ecosystems, and climate change. Intuition and creativity can help guide a *possible outcome story* after the logic points, life experience and science based probabilities are considered.

After all, there are millions of positive outcomes and associated stories that result from the millions of people who are taking similar positive environmental actions.

So, once a *possible outcome story* has been written, we can give that *possible outcome story* to a person to honor them for their environmental action.

This *story trading* is a way to use the millions of *actual outcome stories* as a justification for writing a *possible outcome story* and giving that to a person to honor them for their eco action.

I like *story trading* because it can help motivate a person to take environmental actions if they get to hear a positive and *possible outcome story* based on a specific environmental action that they have already taken or promise to take.

Feel free to write XOEarth Stories for others if you are willing to use current climate related science news and reports, logic, intuition, compassion, empathy and use XOEarth.org/EcoFX to do so. Go ahead and copy and paste the intro on this page into your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts.

Plus, if you would like to write an XOEarth Story with Stele, feel free to contact Stele here.

*Story trading* is a way to write a *possible outcome story* that you can give to a person to honor them for one of their specific environmental actions when the *actual outcome story* is unknown.

So again, it's fun to use science, logic and intuition to write a *possible outcome story* based on a person's specific environmental action, and then, give that story to the person to honor them for taking or promising to take that environmental action.

Sometimes the *possible outcome stories* that come out of the XOEarth Story project may sound a bit cryptic and poetic. We hope you like them.

It might take a day or so to get a comment and story in response to your post with the #XOEarth tag.

Checkout the *XOEarth Biosphera Dance* that was created in part on the *story trading* concept.

Some of the XOEarth *Art. Song. Word.* post relates to the *story trading* concept too.
