Let’s face it. The planet is a hot mess right now. And with all that’s going on during the pandemic, everything can seem to be spinning out of control. But there’s good news. Each of us can help the planet heal and make this a better world for our children.
This problem is bigger than any one of us. But there are simple actions Mom’s can take. All of us can support immediate action by the government to address global warming.
What you should know, the science is long settled. Today the vast majority of climate scientists — over 99 percent — understand that humans are the primary cause of climate change. The earth continues to set heat records year after year, decade after decade. Unfortunately, a bevy of climate-change-is-fake spokespeople have seized the narrative with their misleading statements and — let’s just come out and say it — lies to make the truth seem like a fantasy.
Fortunately, a group of bipartisan moms (who also happen to be climate scientists) has tired of watching people be spectators and feeling helpless as the planet’s health melts away in front of their children. Science Moms want moms (and dads!) all over the country to know that they have more of a say in the future of Mother Earth than they had ever imagined. And they’re out to demystify climate change and show how everyone can do their part to help eradicate it.
