Last week, over 200 leaders across America attended the American Climate Leadership Summit, an annual summit hosted by ecoAmerica that unites CEOs, executives, thought leaders, social scientists, program leaders, and elected efficials. Our participants heard from impactful keynote speakers like Senator Shatz and Mark Tercek, and had the opportunity to discuss climate issues, perceptions, and solutions with a panelists from a variety of different backgrounds. Over three sessions, participants heard from climate scientists, environmental activist organizations, mayors, and climate program leaders from faith, health, and higher education sectors.
"There is only one meaningful path to move forward: doing. The commitments made in Paris get us on the path, but they are not enough. It’s about ethics and the moral obligation to leave behind a world that’s not fundamentally damaged from the effects of climate change. We have a choice ahead of us."
- Michael E. Mann, Distinguished Professor and Director, Earth System Science Center, Penn State University
