Today, the United States said yes to climate action, demonstrating long-term climate leadership that the world can depend on. It took longer to reach this moment than many hoped or expected, but with the dedication of climate advocates in communities across the country, in the halls of the House and Senate, and in the White House, we have overcome one of our most persistent hurdles. The same scientists and advocates whose perseverance led to today’s historic vote will be the first to tell you that there is much more work left to do. Indeed, as soon as it is signed into law, we must move deliberately to ensure that this legislation is not only fully implemented, but improved upon. We must continue to fight for stronger measures to reduce emissions, and we must push back against the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure that is responsible for generations of environmental injustice across the country. This is progress that underscores the importance of electing leaders who champion climate science instead of denying it. Let us embrace this moment as a tipping point for climate action – in America and around the world. #ClimateAction #InflationReductionAct #ClimateReality
I am so energized after spending three days with climate advocates from across the Southwest at Climate Reality's 49th Leadership Corps training! It was an incredibly special weekend filled with education, storytelling & most importantly: hope. I was inspired by Climate Reality Leaders Shawn Harpen, Li-Ya Mar, Lily Morse, & Malika Yates, who shared specific pieces of advice on how to drive action. Among them: dive right in and be sure to listen to and understand the perspectives of your audiences. Drs. Elena Krieger & Karletta Chief joined us to answer Climate Reality leaders’ questions about the climate crisis & its solutions. Scientists like these brilliant women are illuminating our fight against the crisis through their research & teachings. Thank you both! It was also my honor to present Sybil Azur with Climate Reality's Alfredo Sirkis Green Ring Award. Her work in rallying for a clean energy transition in the LA Unified Schools is an inspiration to us all! I was so grateful for our special guests Representative Susie Lee, Representative Dina Titus, Jonathan Scott, Cassie Snow, IN-Q, Commissioner Justin Jones, Tim Guinee, and Calum Worthy. And of course, the people who made this training possible: our entire Climate Reality team! The biggest highlight of these trainings for me is always meeting all of you! I truly believe that this generation of climate activists can & WILL build a more just & sustainable future for our planet. Thank you for making this weekend possible.
