Personal Paris Pledge
When President Trump announced he was pulling out of the Paris climate accord, it made me want to do more on a personal level to address the issue of climate change. Friends have joined me to pledge to make a personal CO2 reduction, and I plan to use our successes and difficulties to fuel a subsequent letter-writing campaign to leaders who can help.
