Paris, Rome, and Iowa? The Link is John Davis, Who Shares About the Climate and Our Future!
A recent U.N. poll shows that 90% of the worldâs citizens want governments to lead us toward zero emissions to combat climate change. Thatâs rich, poor, everybody. The U.N. Conference on Climate is happening this December, and the future is in their hands. With so much at stake, people everywhere are mobilizing to get governments to act. On June 18, the Pope issued an encyclical saying that human-made climate change is fact (the Pope is a trained scientist) and that confronting it is a moral imperative. Yet in our own nation, the Chairman of the Senate Environment Committee, Inhofe (R-OK), says climate change is a hoax or doesnât matter. So, Paris â the climate conference in December; Italy â the Pope; and Iowa? Thatâs where John Davis comes in. John is an organizer for the Climate Reality Project in Iowa, and heâs a grandfather who cares. He can help us understand the Popeâs encyclical, and he can share with us what we can do to get our government to listen and act. Tune in! Call in!
