Tired of climate change news that makes you feel powerless?
The Planet You Save May Be Your Own is a weekly newsletter about local and state climate action by Taylor Kate Brown.
Why this newsletter? A single town or state cutting emissions won’t “save the planet,” but it’s the place of impact that’s accessible to many most people. Understanding your local context will make you better informed on global warming at large.
Each Thursday, I’ll share stories that might expand your idea of what’s possible or replicable where you live, and focus you on what’s timely. This isn’t a call to action newsletter, but it is concerned with tactics and knowledge — knowledge that you can do something with, rather than just despair.

Ready to make change in your own town? Get Zero Cities, the Reusable Media Guide to understanding your city’s emissions reductions plans — and zeroing in on what needs to be done in your own backyard.
