Reflections from the Leader of our National Climate Campaign

This week, Steve Cochran took a moment to share his thoughts on the recent developments in the Senate with EDF supporters and activists.

He discusses some of the frustrations and some of the challenges ahead, such as protecting California's climate change law from a hostile ballot initiative in November's election.

He also looks at bright spots, such as the growing support for climate action within the business community. He closes by putting this moment in a historical context:

"You know, I read history and I’m getting old enough to have lived some of it, and the hard truth is that nothing, almost nothing important — and certainly nothing big — is ever easy to do. It just isn’t.

… But, when you do begin to turn the corner, things often happen much more quickly than you think."

It's heartening to see all the comments from people who share Steve's dedication and determination to keep working toward solutions.
