One of the looming threats from the Trump Administration is that he’ll reverse years of progress on the mitigation of climate change, and reverse promises like the Paris Agreement made earlier this year. If you care about climate change, which you of course should, I encourage you to download this action guide put together by Climate Reality Project (founded by Al Gore).
The guide offers action that you can take, from templates for messages that you can spread on social media, to local actions, resources to help you learn and to share with others, and more. It’s available in versions for a variety of countries. It’s really informative and comprehensive, and the more people that utilize its resources, the better.

From their website:
Millions of Americans are wondering what they can do right now to fight climate change and push back on a Trump presidency.
Here’s our first call to action: Tell President Obama to permanently protect the Arctic and Atlantic from hazardous offshore oil and gas drilling.
Offshore drilling is a serious threat to our climate, marine wildlife, and our coastal communities. The risks are just too high — we must keep these fossil fuels in the ground for good.
In March, President Obama only temporarily protected the Atlantic and parts of the Arctic from dangerous oil and gas drilling. Trump can easily undo this temporary measure.
Ask President Obama to give these areas the permanent protection they deserve.
