Kaynak: Choose Hope | Climate Reality
After all, we’ve spent the last year looking forward to the UN climate talksbeginning in Paris on November 30. But since last Friday, we’ve had to ask ourselves how we can ask people to turn their attention back to the city when its tragedy is still so recent and so many are still in mourning.
And after a lot of reflection, where we’ve come to is a simple request that will always be imperfect, but also feels like perhaps the only response possible: choose hope. Terrorism and climate change are, of course, very different threats. The evil of one does not equate to the devastation of the other. But what they share is a quiet invitation to despair and withdrawal. And in both cases, we ask you to instead choose hope. There’s simply too much at stake to turn away.
So as the UN climate talks approach, we ask you, our friends and supporters, to join with us in carrying the victims of Paris and Beirut in your thoughts in the weeks ahead. And join with us in choosing hope and working for a future we can be proud to pass on to the generations still to come. We still have the chance to protect what is wonderful about this planet we share. Let’s not waste it.
