Weaving together threads of systemic and personal change, challenge, loss, and opportunity, he encouraged the audience to make space to grieve over the things that climate change is taking away from us, and in doing so create emotional and mental space to continue the fight to make the world a better place.

Time for Action on Climate Change

BY LAURA CHAP
@ VOL 16 ON APR 12, 2019

Time is running out for effective action on climate change!  In a brief (geologically speaking) period of time, humans have managed to rapidly change the earth’s temperature.  We have another 12 years before the damage is so extensive it will be impossible to reverse over our lifetime or that of the next generation. Carbon pricing is an effective first step on climate change, and as citizens it is an effective use of our time to advocate for it.
