Solve for X

September 26, 2019

Algebra 1 is typically taken in 9thgrade, when students are 15 or 16.  Students learn how to solve for X. Contrary to popular beliefs (and memes) we actually do use Algebra every day.  In those classes we learned how to solve any problem concerning money or time or distance, etc.  The 16 year-old, climate activist Greta Thurnberg, who recently spoke at the UN’s Climate Action Summit understands that there is a problem to solve, a really big problem:  the climate crisis.

The driving force behind the creation of The Renewal Workshop was—and is—the environment and particularly the linear model that continues to cause devastating damage to our planet.  So we are aligned with Greta’s fierce commitment to the future of our planet and and we appreciate her message to world leaders.  We must take action.  We must make changes.  We must do it now.

As conscientious consumers, we know that you have made many changes to your lifestyle to help the environment.  Yet, given the imperative need, there is always more that can be done.

Continue making choices that help the planet.

Support organizations and companies that are committed to sustainability and the environment.

Vote.  Vote for the kinds of changes you want to see in the world.

Along the way, if you need a reminder about the importance and urgency of this issue, listen to or read Greta’s speech.  She just may be the variable to help us all solve this crisis.
