Look, you should still follow the news, write your members of Congress, vote and donate to causes you believe in. But if we're going to make it though, we're also going to have to, at least occasionally, look away from the five-alarm dumpster fire that is raging at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
When you do look away, I'd like to recommend Fully Charged, a YouTube series hosted by Robert Llewellyn. Fully Charged is all about electric vehicles and renewable energy. It reveals in quite entertaining fashion that there actually are good things happening in the world. Plus British English is kind of fun (e.g. "petrol").
Anyway, just remember, no dumpster fire burns forever . . .
