Dear Friend,
Everytime I start writing a monthly newsletter, I think I'll have nothing to report but it's amazing what you can get done in a month, particularly when you use your holidays for activism and blogging! Check out my March action below and thanks for supporting 'The Verdant Yank'.

On The Verdant Yank

Blog (and dance) like nobody's watching
'The Verdant Yank' celebrated its one year anniversary on St. Patrick's Day.

St. Patrick's Day with Mr. Frackhead
For the St. Patrick's Day festivities, my daughter and I joined Love Leitrim and Friends of the Earth to march in the Sligo parade, banishing Mr. Frackhead from Irish soil. Our display won the adjudicator's award out of the 96 entrants! Check out a short video or my photos
Climate Reality at DCU Business School
Listen to a thirty-minute Climate Reality talk I gave to graduate students at Dublin City University on March 21, 2017. Their questions at the end are challenging and well-informed, which gives me hope for our future
TV3's Tonight with Vincent Browne
Reading the March 22nd headlines with Vincent Browne, I was surprised to find the Parliament's dress code getting headline news over the World Meteorological Organization 2016 'State of the Climate' report. Check out "real" shocking news about the state of our planet here and my 30 second comment here.
