Solutions! Finally some Solutions!!!
I must admit that we, in the conservation industry, are not always good at providing solutions. As you saw from my last blog about the LA Times article website, there is a lot of scary information out there. The problem is that it's rarely connected to solutions. That's what I like about this article - the author, a good friend of mine, is focused on solutions. Expect this from your politicians. Show them that this is an issue that affects your decision at the polls.
We have to show others that we are all citizens of this water planet because, as with all citizenship, the privileges we enjoy come also with responsibility. You understand that.
In the words of poet Maya Angelou, "Nobody, but nobody, can make it out here alone."
We're all on the same ride together. And that's why we need to continue not only to educate the public, industry, and government; but also to insist upon action to achieve solutions. Environmental degradation, and especially climate change, is a challenge which will require innovative solutions from all sectors of society.
