Rethinking Humanity - a Film by RethinkX
Humanity is on the brink of existential transformation, but we’re blind to the deeper processes of change. To recognize the mind-blowing possibility space of the next decade, as well as its catastrophic risks, we must grasp the patterns of history to understand how they can illuminate today.
Rethinking Humanity takes viewers on a whirlwind tour of the rise and fall of civilizations through a powerful lens that makes sense of the past, so that we can step into the present and create our future. During the 2020s, key technologies will converge to completely disrupt the five foundational sectors that underpin civilization, and with them every major industry in the world today. In information, energy, food, transportation, and materials, costs will fall by 10x or more, while production processes an order of magnitude more efficient will use 90% fewer natural resources with 10x-100x less waste.
The knock-on effects for society will be as profound as the extraordinary possibilities that emerge. For the first time in history, we could overcome poverty easily. Access to all our basic needs could become a fundamental human right. But this is just one future outcome. The alternative could see our civilization collapse into a new dark age. Which path we take depends on the choices we make, starting today. The stakes could not be higher.

What We at 350 Wisconsin Can Do About It
Conventional agriculture generates a significant amount of greenhouse gases, in addition to other harmful impacts on water, soil, and human health. However, there are alternative farming practices that that can repair the harm, sequester carbon, and support thriving communities, both human and non-human. Come learn how we at 350 Wisconsin can support farmers to use these regenerative practices!

What is happening?
Before We Energies can increase how much it charges customers, it must get permission from the Public Service Commission (PSC), a branch of the government. They must explain how much money they need and why. The PSC asks the public and experts for input and decides how much to allow the utility to increase rates.
During 'rate cases' like these, We Energies often makes agreements with organizations that are concerned about the proposal.
What is We Energies asking for?
Increases to gas and electrical rates:
We Energies is claiming this increase is because they are building more clean energy, but they have also announced plans to keep expensive coal plants running. Last year, they announced plans to build a new gas storage facility, even though it was proven that an energy efficiency program would have saved ratepayers money.
Global Climate Strike: Chicago: September 23 (more...)
Coordinated with the Fridays For Future Global Climate Strike.
On September 23rd as many as 350 people, from children to near centenarians, marched through the streets of Chicago for two hours demanding the U.S. Federal Reserve, Chase Bank and our U.S. Representatives (Senators Durbin and Duckworth directly) address the mounting Climate Crisis through their respective financial and political channels.
WE MARCHED FOR CLIMATE REPARATIONS AND JUSTICE!
Join us for the Global Climate Strike as we demand policymakers and world leaders to prioritize #PeopleNotProfit! We demand that our Governments listen to MAPA voices and immediately work to provide Loss & Damage Finance to the communities most affected by the climate crisis. #FridaysForFuture
We met at Pritzker Park and marched first to the Federal Reserve Bank (short speeches), then on to Chase Bank Tower (short speeches and dance). From there we marched to Senators Durbin & Duckworth's office building and then returned to Pritzker Park.
You can find Michelle Eul's report and Instagram clip from the Global Climate Strike: Bern, Switzerland here.

8 Things a Plastic-Free Expert Always Brings With Her to Restaurants and Food Trucks
"You may not think going out to eat at your favorite restaurant involves a lot of waste — unless you’re taking food to go. In that case, the establishment may send you home with all kinds of plastic, Styrofoam, and otherwise not-biodegradable containers. To make eating out a more sustainable affair, Marissa Jablonski, a plastic-free expert and the executive director at the Freshwater Collaborative of Wisconsin, keeps a to-go food kit in her car and bike bag." - Apartment Therapy
