Are you planning on being around for the next half-century? Then you must act to foster the kind of world you can be around in!
You don’t have to look fifty years ahead to see the writing on the wall—or to see the unprecedented, seemingly endless, wildfires in the western states, Canadian provinces, Scandinavia, Portugal, Spain, Greece, and Australia.
Nor do you have to look fifty years into the future to see higher food prices because heat and drought are causing crop failures, or to see suffering, death, and destruction from heat-energized superstorms.
And you don’t have to wait to see hotter and hotter years—you just have to look at the last four years, which were the hottest on record.
Runaway global heating and climatic and environmental instability are incompatible with civilization. On Thursday September 6 at 5:30 at Battery Park you can take a stand for your future by joining a mass rally called “Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice” to show that people care about the climate, the environment, and their lives.
We are a group of active and retired faculty members of the City University who care about our students and former students, and want them to have an environmentally healthy world to live in and thrive in. Join us and the People’s Climate Movement of New York (PCMNY.org) Thursday September 6 to make a statement to policymakers and the public that the environment matters!
