What is the most obvious climate solution? How to advance this solution wherever on Earth we are? What is COP26? What is the COP26 Coalition People’s Summit? What is the Social Cost of Carbon?  What is “Keeping Up With Climate Envoy Kerry”? Where can you sign the petition and letter?  What can you do/What can we do?

This campaign is dedicated in memory of Tina Malcolmson. She would remind us that mitigation means reducing emissions and reducing the threats of climate change. Adaptation is dealing with the impacts of Climate and how they are addressed. It's about policy AND financing.
