In the wake of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast, please take 10-15 minutes to read “A Convenient Excuse”, a piece by Wen Stephenson on climate change in the Boston Phoenix.
I’m not going to quote the article – it deserves to be read in its full argument – but I will say this: the core question it poses to leaders in the news media can (and should) equally be posed to current leaders in all fields. The article is unsettling, and it should be. Especially if you are in a position of institutional or corporate leadership, please read, think, get support from people around you, and act.
More on climate change leverage points soon. In the meantime, happy Halloween!
