To Start Making Things Better, You Have to Stop Making them Worse
[NRDC's Dan Lashof] To start making things better, you have to stop making them worse.
That’s the principle we demonstrators articulated at Sunday’s Forward on Climate rally in Washington DC, as our feet stomped against the cold.
I was there wearing two hats. I mean that both literally—it was cold enough that I had a ski cap on underneath my NRDC “Forward on Climate” baseball cap—and figuratively. I’m both a scientist who’s studied the carbon cycle—the way the land, the sea and the atmosphere take up carbon dioxide pollution—and I’m a parent whose newly adult children are inheriting a world that is increasingly devastated by intense, carbon-fueled storms, droughts and wildfires.
