Politicians: Doing Nothing About Climate Change Is No Longer an Option

Climate Change Alamy

Doing nothing isn't an option. That would lead to a significant increase in global average temperatures and extreme weather-related events. Because we've stalled so long, thanks largely to deceptive campaigns run by a small but powerful group of entrenched fossil fuel industry interests and the intransigence of some short-sighted governments, we must also consider ways to adapt to climate change that's already occurring and that we can't stop. Considering the costs and losses climate change and extreme weather impose on our cities, communities and food systems, we can't afford not to act.
