In our small city, we have four national-quality environmental thinkers/writers teachers/activists.
No, amend that: They are international-quality. They have acquired a vast education in ecology, biology, physics, and earth sciences. To say nothing of human psychology and behavior. They are always learning, paying attention to findings, reports and warnings, and at the same time noticing local manifestations of this great global change we are experiencing. Plus they can communicate with us at our grade-nine-level science capacity.
They both challenge us and hold our hands. We trust them because we know them, and they are civil.
