Climate Emergency: Practical Actions, Equitable Solutions
Scientists tell us we need to flatten our emissions curve and actively decarbonize our economies by 2030 to avoid the most severe effects of climate change. This will require broad changes in the way we produce and consume energy. As leaders in our communities, how can we ignite this change and ensure that it is a “just transition” for all people – not just a few? What lessons and reverberations from COVID-19 will affect our response to climate?
