The climate change issue is very complex. First Things First Okanagan recently sponsored UBC professor Simon Donner to speak to the issue at the Penticton Library. Simon gave overwhelming evidence that climate change is real, happening now and caused by humans. Many people feel overwhelmed and repeated ask WHAT CAN WE DO? We as volunteers do not have all the answers. First Things First Okanagan encourages you to become active, engage, learn more, demand that Canada model better outcomes. Change will only come if and when people like you do something. It is up to US, the human race, individually and collectively to find ways to change the path of destruction we seem to have embraced. We have a responsibility as global citizens to care for the earth.
Here are some suggestions of what you can do:
