Climate Change Summit, and What's Possible

This past Saturday, I went to a wonderful Climate Change Summit organized by UU Mass Action.We heard from Clean Water Action, Mothers Out Front, and 350 Massachusetts. It was a great day to start thinking about what we can do, together.

I had the honor of sharing some closing words. I excerpted words from "What’s Possible," a short film shown at UN Climate Summit in New York this past September. You can watch the film here:




Part of the words I shared from "What's Possible" (written by Scott Z. Burns) were: 

"One day we will wake up to find that the energy that powers the alarm clock
came from the breeze through the trees the night before.
And we will go to work that morning riding the rays of the sun.
It will light our cities and power our businesses.
It will warm our homes and cool our workplaces.
It will reduce sources of conflict, and fuel our economies.
It will connect us all.

....

We have every reason in the world to act.
We can’t wait until tomorrow.
This is our only home.
You can choose today to make a world of difference."
