Ready for another Joyful Climate News aka The Alma and Stephanie Show? Episode 4 is here!
Alma's really excited about Rush Hour, a song by Crush (feat. J-Hope of BTS) and its connection to transportation and energy, while Stephanie talks about her recent visit to a corn maze. In this episode, we talk about finding and cultivating joy in doing the things that make us feel alive and even more connected with the world.

2. Ready, Set, Action!
Simple and easy steps to take for the climate right now
* Chad Frischmann, a climate change expert said that reducing food waste is one of the most important things we can do to reverse global warming. Stephanie shared how thrilled she is to find out about Too Good To Go, an app that lets both businesses and consumers reduce food waste. Download the app here.
* Alma loves the Climate Action Now app, which makes it exceptionally easy to take meaningful climate action on your phone in just seconds or minutes. Download the app here.
* If you're looking for the next podcast to listen to, make it Climate One's No Going Back: EVs and Clean Tech Tipping Points with Albert Cheung. Listen to the podcast here where Albert discusses the possibilities of clean technology and electric vehicles, especially now that we're seeing 5% mass adoption in several countries. Couple this with the recent Inflation Reduction Act and California's sweeping climate legislation, we're hopeful that we are finally on the right track.
* Last August 20, Alma hosted a Climate Reality Project (Bay Area) event which featured a conversation between Africans + Non-USers and US allies on the dynamics of superiority, privilege, and oppressor material on the one hand, and internalized oppression, doubt, and silence on the other in the global climate movement.
