On Climate Change

Rising sea levels,
caused by hotter temperatures,
having dramatic effects.

Sea level rise causing flooding,
damaging infrastructure,
ruining fresh water,
challenging our capacity
to respond.   

Our collective economic
well-being, the safety of future
generations is on the line.

People of conscience
are rallying
in solidarity.

The world is at stake.
The costs to humanity,
an indisputable reality. 

New technologies for energy will help avoid the greenhouse gases that are responsible for climate change while creating new industries and prosperity.  It’s win-win.
