Five Ways Climate Solutions Spreads Hope and Inspires More Action on Climate Change: Success Story Saturday 7.12.14
In a twisted way, this is an exciting time. Hear us out. In the face of the immensely daunting, painfully urgent issue of climate change, there are three (primary) ways that we can react. In order from worst to best reactions, the options are: A) denial, B) hopeless acceptance, or C) head-on, full-force tackling of the issue.
Why are these times exciting?
Because organizations like Climate Solutions are choosing option C.
