My baby is now a year old. As I look back over the year, I’m reminded of the heat of last summer. July 2012 was the hottest month in the United States on record.
I often think about what it means to bring an innocent baby into a planet in crisis. I look at him everyday with a big smile, but in the back of my mind I’m apologizing to him for not doing more sooner to help protect this planet he’s inheriting.
There is so much to be hopeful for, there is so much change happening. People are starting to wake up about climate change. Individuals are speaking out and taking action. There are groups like Citizens Climate Lobby working with our government to pass climate legislation. Let’s all join them.
