We increasingly hear that there are now only 12 years left to reduce our carbon emissions 45% below 1990 levels—a daunting task requiring a WWII scaled mobilization.
Please join Rabbi Klein Miles and three passionate, veteran, climate activists to talk about what we need to do to confront the looming climate change tipping point.
