Why can’t environmentalists just lighten the fuck up already?

“Where am I? What is this place?”

The Gigawut is answering the the biggest question facing the planet today: How do we stop making environmentalism so fucking depressing? Today’s most finite and precious natural resource is not oil, water or air – it’s human attention! People shut down when faced with depressing issues. “Oh this sucks, let’s watch a cat video instead.” If doom and gloom worked, we would have fixed everything decades ago. We’re here to change all that. Founded by professional comedy and satire writer, Aaron Hagey-MacKay, we want to keep the planet alive by keeping the conversation alive. We’ll give you news, analysis, opinion, memes, videos, along with cool lifestyle tips, tricks and recipes, and product reviews for the eco-conscious consumer. In the meantime, that means keeping the most upsetting and heartbreaking topics from bumming you out.

Topics like:

  • Climate Change (no, wait, Global Warming. No wait! It’s called the Climate Crisis now, right?)
  • Coral Reef destruction
  • Whether or not Greta Thunberg is actually an ancient God sent to save us
  • Plastic contamination
  • Air pollution
  • Water pollution
  • Ground pollution
  • The New Pollution by Beck
  • Deforestation
