On the urgency of actionAbdalah Mokssit
Unless there are immediate rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, limiting global warming to 1.5°C will be beyond reach.(Abdalah Mokssit, Secretary of the IPCC, Aug 2021, IPCC press conference https://un-spbf.org/event/ipcc-press-release-climate-action-cannot-wait/)

On personal actionGhandi
Be the change you want to see in the world.
If not us, then who?
If not now, then when?
Yes we can.
Now is the time to act.
Having heard all of this you may choose to look the other way but you can never again say you did not know.
Live simply so that others may simply live.
George Bernard Shaw:
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world;
the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
