Climate Crisis

Climate change is an existential issue for our species that will not go away. Climate change is accelerating. It is time to act and to win the hearts and minds necessary to meet this challenge. Reasonable people need also to confront the "no nothings", the "do nothings" and the "I'm all right Jack short termers".

"Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing. He is not a good man who, without a protest, allows wrong to be committed in his name, and with the means which he helps to supply, because he will not trouble himself to use his mind on the subject."

John Stuart Mill
