Climate change is our future and our past. It is not just an environmental issue, it is social, it is economic, it touches all of us and all areas of our lives. It is overwhelming to me to when I think about the future without urgent and decisive action. It is overwhelming to me to think about a dry winter and the forest fires that it may bring this summer. We need systemic change. So we vote and we advocate and we innovate here at home, in our region, at the national level, and in all spaces where we have power and opportunity.
