Thanks Ken. Hopefully see you at Break Free and hopefully this discussion can continue there. Your comments about “clarity” are key. When our language and actions diminish the imperative of the very immediate and real nature of the crisis, we only confuse more people. When our language establishes an equivalence between the inconvenience of waiting in traffic for a coal train and the bleaching of the world’s coral reefs, we confuse more people. When the non-profit environmental complex tries not to sound “alarmist” and dismisses the science it confuses people. People we need.
