Environmental action now

I am a newer resident of Spokane, and have been very disheartened to hear the beliefs people in our state and country have regarding climate change and sustainability.

Multiple reports from the U.N. have come out stating that the time to act about climate change is now - there will be huge social, political and economic impacts if we do not start acting to save our planet. I urge local residents to look into how they can begin to live more sustainably, but also seek out national and international movements meant to protect the Earth (like Extinction Rebellion and Citizens Climate Lobby).

Climate change is an issue that will drastically affect our current generations as well as those to come, and we need to address it now.
