We have entered a time where every summer (and other seasons as well) is a time of record breaking heat waves in several parts of the world. Scientist are more certain than ever that we are in a window where humanity can take action to stave off the very worst effects of climate change. The democratic candidates are discussing plans to address the issue of climate. The current administration fights with states to reduce environmental protections, and car companies who don’t want fuel efficiency standards lowered. We are in a strange place where the federal government is denying science while every indicator available tells us the emergency declared by science is real. We can all take actions to reduce the impact of climate change, but the most important thing we can do is vote!
