I’m not always the best at talking about issues that matter to me – I suppose that’s why it’s generally easier for me to express myself through music or art. However! There has been a lot in the news that’s been concerning me lately, & a lot of that is related to climate change. In about a week, the Trump administration has instituted a media blackout/gag order for the EPA and brought back the pipelines, among other things. While I’m not a scientist myself, I love science & believe that the scientific process is key to understanding our world. When the vast majority of scientists believe that climate change is happening & that humans have an impact on it, who am I to disagree?

With that being said, if you live in the US & want to try & do something, please consider signing a petition to ungag the EPA and call your senators to oppose the nomination of Scott Pruitt as head of the EPA.

Also check out some of the rogue/alt accounts that have been popping up surrounding the EPA gag order – I’m not a social media person & do not use Twitter, so it’s saying something when I recommend checking them out!:
