U.S., China Formally Join Paris Climate Pact

I agree with our President, there is no reason why we can’t have both, a healthy economy and a healthy planet. We have the capability to do both, it won’t be easy, but it is possible. What we need to keep in mind is that there are powerful economic interests putting easy profits over the health of our planet. The fossil fuel industry has deep pockets and powerful friends everywhere in the world. Our duty, as people who inhabit this planet, is to apply constant pressure on our lawmakers to recognize the urgent need for renewable energy as both an energy source and an employment resource. We must recognize that we have constructed our present day political, economic and social paradigm, since we are the creators, we can therefore change it, it is within our power. We have examples of brave people protesting against the fossil fuel industry everyday, the indigenous people of the Amazon, Peru and Canada have been hard at work stepping forward out of their comfort zone to do what they see is just, protecting their environment and their way of life. We should join them in their bravery.
