Will Going Hungry One Day Every Month Help Stop Climate Change?

Organizers of Fast For The Climate are choosing not to eat anything on the first day of every month, “showing their strength of commitment by going without food once a month to call for world leaders to do more to solve the climate crisis”.

According to the organization, thousands of people are participating in the fast, but how does not eating food for one day a month help to stop climate change? “It’s a rich personal experience, it gives a sense of revival, and cleansing, and joyfulness.” says one participant.

Jill Stein, Green Party candidate for President in the United States, is taking part in the monthly fast. She explains her involvement in the video below.

Does her rationale make sense to you?

    Yes and the divestment portion it seems is having an impact on the oil and gas industry. At least for now. Will that help the hundreds of thousands of people who die each year of starvation and lack of water? Probably not. But it does bring awareness to people who otherwise might not be concerned. Awareness of themselves and what climate change might occur where they are and the consequences. Jill Stein would make a good president and is a good leader. At least her voice is being heard.

    The way things are going we’ll all be starving before you know it.
