The strength to fight cli­mate change


The Hamilton Spectator - - Comment -

What can we do about cli­mate change? Ei­ther we can do some­thing, or we do noth­ing.

This week sci­en­tists is­sued a fi­nal warn­ing to the world to act now, or pre­dic­tions for the next 30 years go from bad to worse. By 2028, Toronto is ex­pected to have over 100 days a year reach 30C. We can only bring that num­ber down with im­me­di­ate and rad­i­cal changes to the way we live. Our lead­ers prom­ise that we can re­duce emis­sions with­out per­sonal sac­ri­fice, that we can have our cake and eat it to. But we all know it’s never that easy.

What can we do about cli­mate change? En­cour­age each other to live more sus­tain­ably. Pres­sure our lead­ers to ac­knowl­edge that blood, sweat and tears are needed. For the sake of our chil­dren and all fu­ture gen­er­a­tions, I hope that you find the strength needed.

Chris­tian Cullis, Hamil­ton
