As the front page of the New York Times reminds us once again, we are racing toward a cliff. Climate change is an educators’ issue and a union issue. It’s time that we spend some energy figuring out how we collectively become part of the solution instead of part of the problem (for example, by investing in fossil fuels). We may disagree about the best way to deal with the climate emergency, but we need to get serious about solutions. This needs to be a full-court press. And it won’t be painless.
