Early action to combat climate change is essential. The urgency of climate change is uncontested and we all know that we don’t have any longer much time to waste. A barely perceived change in the direction of a boat’s course can change dramatically its final destination over a long enough period of time. However, long-term strategies are not less important.

On my way home from school, I saw beautiful trees being cut to be replaced by rising buildings. I grew up to that,... Read more
