Fight for the climate

Thanks for Don Hopey's article covering the recent Pittsburgh Environment & Health Conference which dealt with how to wage and win environmental fights ("People Urged to Actively Fight for Environment Here," Oct. 26). Participants were urged to fight for a healthy, stable environment. Climate change is a tough cause because the news is very threatening, it is easier to ignore it, and if one puts a lot of energy into advocacy, one's friends don't want to hear about it.

In order to find a good support system and keep one's optimism, I recommend volunteering with Citizens Climate Lobby, which teaches volunteers the skills needed to advocate. The goal of CCL is to create the political will for a stable climate, and we support a revenue-neutral carbon tax as the most effective, equitable, efficient method to lowering emissions and developing plenty of reliable, renewable energy.
