It’s hard to know what to do about climate change. Even things we know we should be doing are inconvenient and no one else is doing them anyway.
Most people go with the norm.
But our governments set the ground rules for what the norm should be.
Elected officials have a duty to enact policy that is good for society. Elected officials believe that too. Yet in the face of this enormous problem our elected officials are not being proactive on climate change. Why? Mainly because they don’t believe it will keep them in office.
It is our responsibility to tell them it will; and to vote accordingly.
