COP21: Celebrate, dammit, you worked hard for this

It’s not per­fect. It doesn’t yet mean the end of the dig, burn, and dump con­sumer cul­ture. And it will require dif­fi­cult deci­sions by risk-averse politi­cians. But it spells the end of the era of fos­sil fuels, and let’s face it, peo­ple, we worked hard for decades to get this. So I’m dis­ap­point­ed when I search #Cel­e­brate #Cop21 that I don’t see spon­ta­neous cel­e­bra­tions in the streets of every city in the world. But it looks like there was a damn fine par­ty in Paris, well deserved, and we can all vir­tu­al­ly do low-car­bon high fives. And while you’re at it, why not tip your favorite cli­mate activist with Bit­Coin via ChangeTip, and let’s get the ban­k­less future start­ed. I’m send­ing tips called “Cop21 Toasts” to folks in Paris and around the world who pro­pelled this day for­ward in so many ways. Pass it for­ward. So many peo­ple in so many places around the world were a part of the great slow tidal wave that brought this agree­ment for­ward. So many peo­ple have suf­fered and sac­ri­ficed and stood up. Let’s not let this escape notice: we’re chang­ing the sto­ry of the future. This day was anoth­er scrap of evi­dence that the great ship, forest-mast­ed and sun-soaked in its voy­age through space, has a chance.
