Wednesday I spoke to thousands of scientists at one of the largest international gatherings of its kind and called on the scientific community — the “truth-tellers” and “truth seekers” — to mobilize for the climate fight.
My message was simple:
The climate is changing, temperatures are rising, oceans are becoming more acidified, habitats are under stress — the world is facing tremendous danger.
It’ll be up to you as truth-tellers and truth seekers to mobilize all your efforts to fight back.
We’ve got a lot of firepower. We’ve got the scientists, we’ve got the universities, we have the national labs and we have the political clout and sophistication for the battle — and we will persevere. Have no doubt about that.
