When Bill McKibben writes about global warming and climate change, we all need to take heed. I've previously posted these two pieces by him and he's just come out with another appearing below.
There are many policy issues we must confront. However, the environment cannot wait. We are delusional to ignore the science and think otherwise. We are likely the last generation that can act decisively on this—not to actually stop the heating of the Earth, at this point—but to preserve ourselves as a species, as a human race.
Where is the leadership on this, I always wonder? Even with such environmental groups as the Sierra Club, Environment Texas, and the like, this is a problem that cannot get outsourced. Everyday folks in all communities need to unite to focus on this from every possible angle, including curriculum development and local campaigns and teach-ins for clean(er), renewable energy.
Let's get behind a Green New Deal. Either we take on the fossil fuel industry or we face a hot and ever-heating Earth and all that means for the kinds of massive devastation to plant, animal, and human life that we are collectively witnessing or personally experiencing.
Sí se puede! Yes we can! And we must...!
