100%. Climate change is the most pressing crisis of our time. The majority of the scientific community agrees that it IS real, and that human activity is behind it. Look at the increased number of droughts, melting polar ice, rising sea levels, air pollution... this isn't going to reverse itself without immediate, coordinated action. We need leaders to be bold and truly LEAD on this issue. Without aggressive safeguards, there will be absolutely no incentive to explore alternative, cleaner energy. It may be costly short-term, yes, but the long-term pay-off is having a sustainable planet. Without a comprehensive plan that takes this into account, corporations and oil companies will continue to choose profit over the health of the environment and seal our fate.
