The constant focus on the science and economics of climate change is an inadequate response to the risks posed by a warming climate. That’s the view of the National Climate Ethics Campaign, which today in Washington, DC released a “Statement of Our Nation’s Moral Responsibility to Address Climate Change” signed by more than 1,200 national leaders. Yesterday, I spoke with Bob Doppelt, the campaign’s coordinator.
When my small town can get more than a hundred people out to a rally with only two days notice (and with many locals attending other nearby rallies), you know that the Occupy Wall Street movement is on to something. To find out what this something means – or should mean – for the climate movement, we queried five leading climate voices about Occupy’s lessons and opportunities.
