From Ignition, just published by Island Press, a quote by Jared Duval, national director of the Sierra Student Coalition:
"Global warming is probably the biggest threat that has ever faced humanity. That is what is most scary about it -- and also what is most exciting. A problem of this scale presents an opportunity for grand solutions: more just and sustainable ways of life that will not only stabilize the climate but also reinvigorate community, restore environmental and human health, and give us a secure world far more hopeful and fulfilling than the one we live in today."
In this spirit, I'll be joining the nationwide Step It Up rallies tomorrow, and hope to see you there!
