You Need To Talk About Climate Change.

You Need To Talk About Climate Change.

Yes, you.

Often people feel like they don’t know what to do about the looming climate crisis. Of course, most know that it is actually a crisis that is right here, right now.

In fact, according to the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, 73% of Americans acknowledge that the climate is changing and that humans are the cause of that change. Many believe that it “won’t effect me” and some believe that the changes our world is experiencing is happening slowly.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the evidence is overwhelming-climate change is here and now and human activities have changed the climate.

According to renowned climate scientist Katherine Hayhoe, the most important thing we can do today to help people understand the urgency of the climate crisis is to talk about it.

“The best place to begin a conversation is not with what we disagree on, but with something we agree on: whether it’s jobs and the economy, our kids, our hobbies (cooking, knitting, birding, hunting), the place we live, organizations we’re part of (a church, the Rotary Club), or more: whatever it is that makes you you and that you love, those are great things to bond over! Then, connect the dots between what we already agree on and how climate change is affecting us and bring up a positive, viable solution the person you’re talking to could get on board with.”

MHH365 recognizes that by bringing together community partners and highlighting Earth Day events, we have an opportunity to have meaningful discussions about what the Cambridge Community can do all year long to be a part of climate solutions.

We hope you will follow us on our social platforms and support the local organizations participating in the Earth Day event.
