On a beach in 2015 the idea came through. Earth for President, a genuine campaign and a meme that might help shift perspective. We imagine campaigns being run in all countries to elect Earth as leader. We formed our exploratory committee and are in the midst of the campaign right now.

Current website for 2020.

“Oh hell yes!”
