Groups like the Sunrise Movement and people like Chanté are forcing necessary change. The Knights of the Climate Covenant are right there with them.

Generation on Fire: Project 400,” #NoDAPL, #StopLine3… if only I was a few decades younger, or about a decade older, with fewer people counting on me, I’d be there.

With the Knights, I still am.

Martin C. Fredricks IV

Martin C. “Red” Fredricks IV here. I’m husband to an amazing woman who is also my best friend, dad to three outstanding kids, Fargoan (North Dakota, that is), proud introvert, veteran messaging strategist/copywriter, blogger ( nonprofit founder ( and big-time reader. As they say, if you're gonna write good stuff, you have to read good stuff. A ginger, too - ergo the "Red" - although some of it's going white. Cinnamon-Sugar, I call it. Tattooed to boot; seven so far. At age 54, I'm stilling crankin' AC/DC & Metallica, but now and again I spin some Eric Church and Black Uhuru, too. I love hanging out with my (much) better half, spending time with our kids, writing, hiking, riding my mountain bike and reading.

Kudos Martin for creating the Climate Knights. We each do what we can and I’d like to believe writing and other personal actions add up to making a difference. Some days I believe that, and other days I believe the actions needed are too big, requiring mass adoption by people, governments, and corporations (who seem to the ones with the majority of the wealth and power). Meanwhile, thanks for caring and acting in your own ways.
