“We’re going to win this thing, but first we have to understand what it is.” With seas rising, global heat records falling, and storms becoming more and more devastating, the reality of climate change has never been clearer. With clean energy solutions like wind and solar getting more affordable, batteries getting better, and buildings becoming more efficient every year, we can see the way forward. The good news doesn’t end there. Thanks to 195 countries signing the historic Paris Agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions planet-wide, the world is united in working for a safe and sustainable future with net-zero carbon emissions by the second half of this century. Climate Reality is working to accelerate the global shift from activities driving climate change to renewables so we can power our lives and economies without destroying our planet. But we can only do it together with a deep understanding of the current global situation and the science behind it.

Gerald Johnson, recently retired from OCA’s Executive Committee, just finished Climate Reality Leadership Training in Bellevue, WA, and has this to say:

I wanted to express my gratitude for encouraging Ali and I to participate in the climate reality training. This was a truly inspirational and educational opportunity for us both. Here is a resource offered at the training, created by Jill MacIntyre Witt, who coordinates Climate Reality Leaders in the Pacific Northwest:
