Say “Climate Change’ I know you can.

 

It’s 2012, the concentration of CO2 at the arctic is 400ppm, but the local press still cannot say “Climate Change”.

The report SYRACUSE SUSTAINABILITY PLAN can say “The burning of fossil fuels for energy is the single largest contributor to climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions.”

But the report on the report by the media cannot say why the heck a city like Syracuse, or any other city for that matter, needs a sustainability plan.

It’s about Climate Change. If you don’t say the words, the public doesn’t ‘get it’.
