Seriously, no really...it. is. time.
How do you think our politicians are doing? Do you think they're addressing the looming existential threat? Every country needs the political courage to look beyond current distractions and interests. We all need to recognize that the dark predictions regarding the loss of biodiversity and the rising extremes in our weather are materializing in front of our eyes.
Energy conservation and careful use of our natural resources are so important, yet so disregarded by so many of us on a daily basis. How bad does it need to get before we wake up and demand more meaningful action by corporations and governments? The "painful" changes we need to make will all be dictated by law in the future if we don't follow a more responsible path now.
