Climate change is not just an environmental issue, or a social justice issue, or an economic issue. It is one of the biggest challenges humanity has ever faced, and the consequences impact everything from food shortages to mass migration to escalating political discord and conflict. It is essential that we work together to solve the climate crisis.
That means bringing people together – not just environmentalists, but business owners, faith groups, labor unions, universities and others – and building coalitions strong enough to put pressure on governments, and stand up to the fossil fuel industry. We cannot a afford to wait any longer, we need true climate action now.
