I stand by this critique of what Franzen's essay gets wrong, but I didn't credit what it implicitly gets right ⎯- that is, the climate fight is disconnected from what we individually cherish. My heart, too, rebels at the idea that tons of carbon avoided trump everything else.

My Best Friend Doesn't Believe in Climate Change

Often, in my climate change conversations, I don't use controversial words. There's no point in me insisting on using "climate change," "global warming" or "deniers" if it makes anyone upset. Spreading the word about conservation and eliminating waste is more important than fighting over the usage of some controversial terms. Let's all be gentle to each other and our planet.

Yes, the world doesn't need to tell India what to do because of our unique cultural value to the environment and our minimal contribution to historic carbon emissions, but neither can India's Prime minister continue to dwell in rhetoric and falsely lead the public into thinking he is doing enough to protect them.

There's a clean energy revolution happening in California -- and it has the potential to topple the old polluting forces while fighting climate change with the power of the sun. But here's the thing about a good revolution: It can't rely on a few remarkable events; it needs a solid foundation to sustain itself, and it needs to empower people, the true lifeblood of any revolution.
