On Nov. 11, I read an article in The New York Times about how investors are preparing for climate change. It was a reminder that, even as politicians and pundits continue to claim that their own assumptions trump the scientific data, those who must deal in reality – like investors, the Pentagon, and the insurance industry – are all continuing to take climate change into account.
As world leaders prepare for the upcoming climate change conference in Paris, we would do well to contact our elected officials and remind them that this is a serious matter, and that they need to support policies that will help to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
