How to do 14 bold+scary+fun EARTHSCREAMs every day ::
1] Scream out loudly, sing out loudly, or speak out loudly to ask 14 people every day to Promise to take one of the Big Climate Actions that you suggest. EARTHSCREAM face-to-face in businesses, in governments, in public spaces, and via phone, social media, email or mail. To do a group and viral EARTHSCREAM do a social media post or event so others can join you in person, or they can do the EARTHSCREAM where they are.
2] To make every EARTHSCREAM more fun, offer to give people an award, a victory dance, some art, a future story, a song, or other cool things if they will Promise to take one of those Big Climate Actions.
3A] For those who Promise to take a Big Climate Action, thank them and give them the cool thing that you offered!!
+ Exchange contact or social media info so you can check in with each other and celebrate the successes they have with their Promise.
3B] For those who do not Promise to take a Big Climate Action, here are some options!!
+ Offer to give them some other cool thing too.
+ Continue to EARTHSCREAM, start a sit-in, sing-in, dance-in, art-in, stand-in, blockade, boycott and/or take legal action if they do not Promise to take a Big Climate Action. How far you go with the civil disobedience or direct actions will determine how much you risk being arrested.
+ Mention the climate monster heatwaves, floods, fires or storms that are getting worse by the day on our dying Earth and in their community, and other reasons it is crucial to take Big Climate Actions now.
+ Ask them again [and again] to Promise to take a Big Climate Action.
+ EARTHSCREAM to them again later that day, or on another day.
+ Be careful to not scream so loud that it damages your vocal chords.
+ Screaming too loud can permanently damage vocal chords.
+ Warm up your vocal chords before screaming.
+ Study vocal techniques to find out how to protect your voice when you scream for big climate actions.
+ Now is time for people to scream for life and a livable planet Earth. That’s because the biggest game in town is the game to save our biosphere, and the biggest arena and stadium is our planet itself. So have fun screaming and cheering on others to join Team Earth by taking Big Climate Actions.
Stele’s Personal Note:
+ Yummy Earth’s Cream in all kinds of wonderful flavors is what we get more of when we extend the life of our Earth. Just a few of my fave flavors of Earth’s Cream are nice weather, clean water, fresh air, healthy soil, good friends, folk music, bicycles, critters, magnifying lenses and love.
SCREAM LIKE HELL By Yessenia Funes
Our screams let leaders know we’re paying attention. It forces them to listen. So, scream, shout, and let it all out! Let our failed institutions know we won’t stand for their apathy. Not anymore. Get heated—and take action. Each and every one of us is a critical part of the fight against climate change.”
“Across the globe, people are hitting the streets in protest. Global leaders must listen up—and shift the power to the people if they want to tackle the climate injustice so many face.
Screaming may only get us so far, sure, but it’s a start. Sometimes, it’s all we can do.”

WATCH: Greta Thunberg’s full speech to world leaders at UN Climate Action Summit
Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg chastised world leaders Monday, Sep. 23, for failing younger generations by not taking sufficient steps to stop climate change. “You have stolen my childhood and my dreams with your empty words,” Thunberg said at the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York. “You’re failing us, but young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you,” she added. Thunberg traveled to the U.S. by sailboat last month so she could appear at the summit. She and other youth activists led international climate strikes on Friday in an attempt to garner awareness ahead of the UN’s meeting of political and business leaders.

An architect of the Paris Climate Accord, Secretary Kerry shared his experience negotiating global action on this issue and his vision for future progress.
“Science has been screaming at us that climate change is going to impact every single nation on the Earth and every sector of the global economy and it already is in many places.”

‘The Science Is Screaming At Us’: John Kerry Reboots U.S. Climate Cooperation | NBC News NOW
UN scientists say it’s ‘now or never’ to limit global warming – BBC News
UN scientists have unveiled a plan that they believe can limit the root causes of dangerous climate change.
A key UN body said in a report that there must be “rapid, deep and immediate” cuts in carbon dioxide emissions.
Global emissions of CO2 would need to peak within three years to stave off the worst impacts.
Even then, the world would also need technology to suck CO2 from the skies by mid-century.
The disarming case to act right now on climate change | Greta Thunberg
In this passionate call to action, 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg explains why, in August 2018, she walked out of school and organized a strike to raise awareness of global warming, protesting outside the Swedish parliament and grabbing the world’s attention. “The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions,” Thunberg says. “All we have to do is to wake up and change.”
Climate scientists are desperate: we’re crying, begging and getting arrested
by Peter Kalmus
On Wednesday, I was arrested for locking myself onto an entrance to the JP Morgan Chase building in downtown LA. I can’t stand by – and nor should you.
“Climate activists are sometimes depicted as dangerous radicals, but the truly dangerous radicals are the countries that are increasing the production of fossil fuels.” – United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres
I’m a climate scientist and a desperate father. How can I plead any harder? What will it take? What can my colleagues and I do to stop this catastrophe unfolding now all around us with such excruciating clarity?
On Wednesday, I was arrested for locking myself to an entrance to the JP Morgan Chase building in downtown Los Angeles with colleagues and supporters. Our action in LA is part of an international campaign organized by a loosely knit group of concerned scientists called Scientist Rebellion, involving more than 1,200 scientists in 26 countries and supported by local climate groups. Our day of action follows the IPCC Working Group 3 report released Monday, which details the harrowing gap between where society is heading and where we need to go. Our movement is growing fast.
Earth breakdown is much worse than most people realize. The science indicates that as fossil fuels continue to heat our planet, everything we love is at risk. For me, one of the most horrific aspects of all this is the juxtaposition of present-day and near-future climate disasters with the “business as usual” occurring all around me. It’s so surreal that I often find myself reviewing the science to make sure it’s really happening, a sort of scientific nightmare arm-pinch. Yes, it’s really happening.
Martin Luther King Jr said, “He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.” Out of necessity, and after exhaustive efforts, I’ve joined the ranks of those who selflessly risk their freedom and put their bodies on the line for the Earth, despite ridicule from the ignorant and punishment from a colonizing legal system designed to protect the planet-killing interests of the rich. It’s time we all join them. The feeling of solidarity is a wonderful balm.
