“Global Warming is Real”
#BrewArtForChange artwork by Peter John Almarines
The inflexion point we are now at requires leadership from cities and remember that years from now, there will be a future generation that inherits the earth we bequeath to them and they will ask one of two questions. If they live in a world of political disruption and chaos and diseases, stronger storms and more destructive floods and worse droughts and sea level rise forcing retreat from coastal cities and political chaos, they would be justified in looking back at us and asking, “What were you thinking? Couldn’t you hear what the science was saying? What Mother Nature was screaming at you?” But if they inherit a world that fills their hearts with hope, with the millions of new jobs being created and cities leading the way and businesses working with governments and civil society to retrofit buildings and install renewable energy and create sustainable agriculture and forestry, and if they can look at their own children and say with conviction and sincerity, your lives are going to be better too.
