dogwood photography’s photo challenge: story telling – modern convenience

Week 40 Story Telling: Modern Convenience (What modern convenience of 2019 can you not live without? Create an image that looks like an advertisement for your favorite Modern Convenience.)

After contemplating this challenge for a number of weeks, the only convenience of 2019 that I need is one that is designed to heal the harmful actions of ignorance.

Fighting climate breakdown is about much more than emissions and scientific metrics – it’s about fighting for a just and sustainable world that works for all of us.

On Sept. 20-27, climate action organizers are planning a Global Climate Strike, with hopes that massive and consistent turnout will make a difference. If you’d like to join the 2019 Global Climate Strike, there are lots of ways you can get involved. And if there isn’t a strike planned in your city, the organizers want to help you plan one yourself. 

“The climate crisis is an emergency but we’re not acting like it,” the strike’s official website reads. “People everywhere are at risk if we let oil, coal and gas companies continue to pour more fuel on the fire.” And yes, though past strikes have focused on students, adults are welcome and absolutely encouraged to take part, too.
