We have a moral, ethical, and survival imperative to learn about climate change/global warming, and to act appropriately and decisively. This imperative derives from people living today and all those who will follow us. We must not have future generations say, of us: “They refused to learn” or “they knew but did not act.”

“We are the first generation to directly feel the effects of global warming and the last generation that can do anything about it.”
