The Holy Grail of Climate Action

By Greg Hamra, leader of the Miami Chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby

Climate change is the greatest threat facing humanity today. So, w e have three choices; reduce our greenhouse emissions, adapt, or suffer. We're going to do some of each. The question is what the mix will be. The more we reduce emissions, the less adaptation will be required, and the less suffering there will be. THE solution to the climate crisis is clearly pricing carbon. But this will require an act of Congress to become law. This means we need political will for a livable world. And that's where YOU come in.   Learn More

Checklist for a more Sustainable Lifestyle
By Karla Utting, Executive Director of Dream in Green

We all have a carbon footprint, a measurement of the amount of carbon dioxide we create by our daily activities. When carbon is released into the atmosphere faster than it can be reabsorbed by natural processes, it contributes to global warming. Presently, CO2 is being released ~3x faster than it can be reabsorbed, which means that almost everything we do aggravates the problem. The good news is that we can take action to reduce our footprint in almost every aspect of our life. Learn More
