On Earth Day we all to take a stand so that together, we can show the world a new direction. It’s our turn to lead. So our world leaders can follow by example. Over the past 20 years, there have been a series of failed attempts to create an effective international treaty on climate change mitigation. In 1997, the first major international agreement was passed, The Kyoto Protocol. The US, one of the top polluters, didn’t ratify. Since then, many Summits and many efforts to come to agreement—Rio, Copenhagen—have ended in a flop.
This year our Governmental, business, and non-profit leaders must come to an agreement that will cut our emissions and limit our warming to 2°C. Let’s make 2015 the year when our leaders pass an historic binding, global climate treaty.
