There is now no national leadership on climate issues. Indeed some government officials seem to think it does not exist or that it is not worth devising a collective policy for the United States or the wider world when it comes to climate change.
One result of this is that on a local level responsible eco-citizens in Cambridge, Massachusetts — as well as other in many locations around the world — are creating their own initiatives on climate issues. Since governments have failed and the electoral process has become the captive of corporate interests intent upon oxidizing the Earth’s remaining terrestrial carbon reserves, responsible global citizens are linking both local and global action to address our collective crisis.
