This page serves as a selective guide to where you can gather information about global warming, and about our changing climate. Here you can let your voice be heard, make a contribution, take action.
There will be fires in our future, as there will be sea-level rise, migration of human populations, economic and political upheaval, and a die-off in our oceans. We can't “opt out.” We all see and feel the cascading effects of climate change. We’re going to be witnessing these effects through our lifetimes, and our children will see them even more powerfully and destructively.
Join us in looking with clear eyes at the transition we must make, as a society, away from fossil fuel consumption.
Join us in being the radical change that is needed, expressed in action and policy.
Join us both in sounding the alarm, and in giving our very best answers to that alarm. It’s time for everyone to be an activist.
