Earth Monster businesses in your town are selling products that are making the Earth Monster heatwaves, floods, wildfires and hurricanes more vexing and lethal by the day.
Pick one or more of those Earth Monster businesses and dedicate 140 minutes a day to stop them so you can help keep the Earth Monster disasters from killing your town and this planet.
Three ways to stop an Earth Monster business is to get them to not sell those killer products, or get them to donate or invest ~24%* of their net income to compensate for those CO2 emissions, or shut the business down via direct action, boycott, and legal action. [*See INVEST24 to calculate %.]
There are Earth Monster businesses that are more dangerous to our Earth than others. But we are going to have to kill all or almost all of those big and small Earth Monster businesses if we are going to keep the Earth Monster heatwaves, floods, wildfires and hurricanes from crashing this sweet planet Earth party.
Any business is an Earth Monster if they are selling products that result in more CO2 and greenhouse gases in our already inflamed atmosphere, and they are not donating or investing in projects or organizations that compensate for [or offset] those CO2 emissions.
The EarthDare is a fun and exciting way to challenge an Earth Monster business to stop killing our planet, or to get others to boycott an Earth Monster business if the business won't stop. [How to EarthDare]
Every day that you fight an Earth Monster company that is making climate change worse and poisoning the water, soil and air, you are also reducing the chance your town will be hit by one of those Earth Monster wildfires, floods, hurricanes, and heatwaves.
Please dedicate 140 minutes every day to take direct actions and other actions on your own or with others to stop one or more of those Earth Monster businesses.
Your town and your planet need your help to keep those Earth Monster businesses from destroying them.
For all the life, Stele Ely
Some Ways to Stop the Earth Monsters and Help Save Your Town and Planet
+ Boycott those Earth Monster businesses and get others to join you.
+ Do 14 Earth Dares every day against the Earth Monster businesses you are focused on. When you do these Earth Dares ask them to promise to stop selling the products that are killing our planet, or INVEST 24%* of their net income to compensate for the CO2 greenhouse emissions from those products. Also tell the Earth Monster business that you will give them an award, a future story, a dance, a song, art or some cool thing if they promise to stop selling those killer products, or INVEST 24%* of their net income to compensate for the CO2 greenhouse emissions.
+ Dare 14 people or businesses every day to join you in direct actions, a boycott, and/or legal actions to stop one or more specific Earth Monster businesses. Ask them to promise to help you stop the Earth Monster businesses that are killing our planet, unless those businesses stop selling those products, or INVEST 24%* of their net income to compensate for the CO2 greenhouse emissions from those products. Mention that if they prefer to help stop some other Earth Monster businesses that's great too. For helping stop the Earth Monster businesses, also say that you will give them an award, a future story, a dance, a song, art or some cool thing if they promise to help stop those Earth Monster businesses.
+ Take legal actions against those Earth Monster businesses, if you can.

Celebrate your progress and victories
Take some time every day to acknowledge that your eco logical actions help keep an Earth Monster from wreaking havoc where you live, and take some time to celebrate and party a little! Congrats from us too!
And then tomorrow, do it again to help keep your town safer for the next week and year too!
Depending on where you live, Earth Monsters might come in the form of Extreme Wildfires, Floods, Heatwaves, Hurricanes, Freezes, and other Extreme Weather.
Plus, every month, celebrate even bigger because your eco=logical actions have helped protect your town, your state and your planet from the destruction and agony of another Earth Monster!
And obviously, every month, celebrate if your eco=logical actions have also helped keep our planet's biosphere from entering a global irreversible collapse and irreversible dying that could happen in the next year [if we don't take big climate actions now].
And of course, invite those friends and neighbors that are helping keep the weekly Earth Monster away to celebrate with you!!
# How Many # Months To Save Earth
United Nations says a Climate Disaster Every Week
Our consumer choices and activist actions help determine how many climate change disasters [aka Earth Monsters or Climate Change Monsters] happen every year.
So by taking responsibility for the Earth Monsters where you live, you are also helping reduce the number of other Earth Monsters + Climate Change Monsters around the world!
"When you take major climate action you are helping reduce the chance that the number of major climate change disasters around the world does NOT increase by 50% in the next 3 to 5 years. That 50% guesstimate is based on scientific reports and climate projections that are cited in my Guesstimate report." ~ Stele Ely.
By the way, a lot of people who hate charred, smoldering, broken or drowned peeps, trees, houses and bees have promised to help defend their towns and our biosphere too. Their commitments will help protect your town too.

Do You Fight, Kiss or Parent Your Earth Monsters?
Are any of the following true for you?::
[If so tell us in a comment below or on our XOEarth facebook group.]
1] You see your Earth Monsters [or Climate Change Monsters] as your kids. Because, after all, you know that your past consumer purchases have probably helped make some of these Earth Monsters possible. So you are trying to help your 'Earth Monsters kids' find their happy side by taking all those Environmental Actions every day that do not feed their bratty side.
2] You are activating your super eco hero self to fight those two Earth Monsters as your villain or enemy. That's why you have activated your superhero self to be an ecological citizen, focused activist and wary consumer that is committed to powerful Environmental Actions.
3] You see these Earth Monsters as mean and angry creatures that just need a friend and some fairness to calm them down and tame them. You are doing that by taking Environmental Actions everyday to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases and throwaway plastics they get to eat, and that encourages them to be way-more-peaceful.
4] You think of one [or more] of these Earth Monsters as the dark side of a close friend who might otherwise be a nice person, but has been enraged by unkind and unfair treatment in the past. This friend needs some Environmental Actions and eco quality time to help them find their compassionate and loving self.
Whatever is true for you, thanks for your commitment to your daily Environmental Actions that are helping slow down these Monsters. Thanks for helping team earth turn them into "an interesting weather system", that is "rather fun in fact".
If an Earth Monster has Already Attacked Your Town
Has an Earth Monster + Climate Change Monster attacked your town recently? If so, I hope you did not lose anything big in the attack. If you did, I'm sorry for your loss.
If an Earth Monster disaster has NOT Attacked Your Town Recently
If an Earth Monster heatwave, flood, wildfire or hurricane has not hit your town recently, yeee haaa! Glad to hear it. Celebrate that fact for a moment. If you have been taking Environmental Actions in your life, celebrate that you have helped keep those Earth Monster disasters away.
If you happen to be one of those people that is not taking Environmental Actions, if you start now, you can help keep those troublemakers from trashing your town too.
In the last few years in the town where I live in Colorado and close to it, we have had wildfires and floods kill people, destroy a lot of homes, wipe out thousands of trees and kill a lot of wild animals. And a few hundred miles from town in almost every direction from here, there have been Earth Monsters that have destroyed whole communities or even entire towns.
Even if you have NOT had Earth Monster disasters hit your town recently, there have probably been Earth Monsters disasters that have been bad news for towns not far from where you live too.
Turn a Huge Earth Monster disaster into a Little Earth Monster
On the global scale, here's a way to stay strong when you see a report about an Earth Monster that has caused major destruction somewhere in world. When you see that sad report, look along the edges of the disaster where a precious sliver of nature, or someone's house or some person has survived.
Even though a climate disaster news report is sad, realize that your environmental climate actions may have been just what it took to help save that a little part of nature, or someone's house or some person's life. In other words, your climate actions may have been the thing to make that Earth Monster and Climate Change Monster a little smaller.
Occasionally, one person's climate actions over the year or their whole life may have been just what it took to keep an Earth Monster from being born at all. Yesss, you could be one of those super peeps this year. So every now and then, take time to smile big about that.
What is the Name of your Earth Monster disaster?
Just like every destructive hurricane or typhoon is named, I give names to the future Earth Monsters that are aiming to destroy different towns and places around the world.
Share the name you have for a future Earth Monster[s] and the big climate actions that you are taking to slow down or stop it on our XOEarth Facebook page, Instagram or Twitter. We will share your Earth Monsters names and your actions to encourage others to take big climate actions too.
Or, if you would like me to suggest a nickname for the Earth Monsters that wants to mess with your life and town and planet, ask me via XOEarth on Facebook or the contact page.
For instance, Hotron is the name I have given to the Earth Monster that is eyeing to burn down the trees and houses near Boulder Colorado. That Earth Monster name, Hotron, helps me focus and power-up my environmental climate actions even more. Plus, I tell others that name to help cheer on their environmental climate action too.
A Little Wild Weather is Wonderful
Anyway, let's teach those Earth Monster disasters [Climate Change Monsters] a lesson on how to "just be some wild weather" instead of becoming a Mega Wildfire, Flood, Heatwave or Hurricane that could turn our towns into a bummer zones.
A note from Stele
Hello Earth Lovers,
I, Stele, promise to take responsibility for the Earth Monsters in my town and the world too. So I promise to be an EcoLogical Consumer and an XOEarth HERO to help keep them from becoming the full blown Earth Monsters too.
For more fun, Stele Ely
