Increasingly, climate change is impacting our individual and collective well-being. The dire warnings issued by climatologists for decades now, and often dismissed as alarmist, are emerging in over-the-top weather events all around us. Heat waves, supercharged storms, droughts, floods, sea level rise and other signs of the climate catastrophe have moved us from the theoretical to the actual. We are throttling headlong toward the real possibility of cataclysmic disruptions and disasters on a scale never seen in human history, ones that threaten our very survival. When you enter the voting booth this November (and please do vote), forget about party or ideology. Support those candidates who recognize climate change as an existential threat, and who possess the courage and resolve to do something about it. Before long, little else will matter.
