“We need to make climate actions local and we need to make them real,” says Jerry Brown, the Governor of the State of California at the Climate Summit of Local and Regional Leaders. Political mobilization on climate action is difficult but it is not impossible.
The governor reminds us that economics and ecology both have the same root in greek – eco, meaning home. We need to make a transition away from measuring our wellbeing by gross domestic product and raise our consciousness. There has never been as many people, as much technology and as much knowledge that will enable us to make a change. “If we all do our utmost – we will get it done – climate change is the one problem where everyone is in charge.”
