Throughout the many years that I had the privilege, joy, and honour to teach young children, I always believed that they had a bright future ahead of them. Once I retired, I had the time to read, and to follow the science of climate change. Now that I know what has been unfolding, intensively, in the space of my lifetime, I am profoundly distressed by the perilous future before all children, and before our companion species.

It is on our watch, now, there remains this slim chance to make the profound change, needed as rapidly as possible, to assure the least perilous future for life. We have the solutions. We need the political will to safeguard our common future. We need climate leadership.

What did you do when you knew?
