“Those who have the privilege to know, have the duty to act.” -Albert Einstein
What comes to mind when you hear this quote from Albert Einstein? What do you feel that you are privileged to know? Are you acting on that knowledge?
Given the focus of this blog, I think climate change fits appropriately into this category. Furthermore, I know that the poor and most vulnerable in our world will also be the ones most affected by climate change.
So, I have a duty to act. It’s not always clear exactly how to act when the knowledge of the problem tells us how enormous it is, but we must still search for the ways to fulfill our duty to act. The best way to do that is together.
