No vaccine for climate change. We must act

Despite the President’s claim that COVID-19 will disappear, scientists are quite clear that it is worsening. If only we had listened to the experts, we could have prevented such loss of life, financial destruction and the world’s disbelief that America could no longer lead. This situation is about to repeat itself. Our next pandemic is climate change.

Scientists warned us in the ’80s that if we didn’t act, the cost, loss of life and the future of our planet would be in danger. We are now seeing that these predictions are coming true.

September was the hottest month recorded since temperature tracking began. Today, there are weather extremes around our planet. We have seen this movie before and it does not end well. We may find a cure for the virus, but there is no vaccine for climate change.

We must act now for our children and grandchildren.
