After decades of uncontrolled greenhouse gas emissions and mounting impacts, we now need an “all hands on deck” cooperative approach to develop workable, long-term solutions to climate change.

Next Generation Left to Tackle Climate Change

I belong to the Boomer Generation. I was born in 1947. I’m embarrassed to admit that my generation has been at the political and economic wheel during the worst decades of human-made environmental degradation ever witnessed on planet Earth – rising carbon emissions leading to global warming, acidification of the oceans, large-scale deforestation, climate change, pollution […]

Grandfather Turned Climate Activist

Grandfather Turned Climate Activist

Recently, I was a guest on the Green Divas Radio Show hosted by Green Diva Meg (aka Megan McWilliams). Meg and I are both grandparents who have become quite involved in climate action.
