We are at a critical point in our human history. We all will face the effects of climate change. Natural disasters, an increase in refugees, the health of our people worsening, etc. These issues are big, but not bigger than the potential for our collective action. To me, climate change and the response to it can bring about a better world for all people.
The reason I am riding and organizing action and people on climate is because I still see hope for this world, and I want to tell the world that there is still hope to be found. If we all help each other realize the extent to which our humanity is tied to one another, we can come up with the solutions to all of the world’s problems, and do it together. If we respect each other, listen to one another, and act as one, there is nothing we cannot do.
I believe that part of this process means that we must come together to take action on climate. Now, more than ever, there is bipartisan support growing for action on climate change. We are seeing political parties work across the aisle to help repair a world in need of a tune-up. We are seeing farmers, military vets, environmentalists, sports enthusiasts, people from all walks of life coming together to take collective action. That’s what this is all about. Building community and offering solutions for a better, more livable world for all. There is no better time than now. This is our chance, let’s take it!
