Unless we engage even this fiercely local work with action and advocacy for an entirely different way of being human on this planet, our local efforts are likely to be overwhelmed by future disasters driven by these larger climate influences, along with our unsustainable demands on the planet to support a way of life that simply cannot be supported – not ethically, morally, or even physically – it is not possible.
