To solve our environmental problems, climate change being by far the largest, we need to think about both smaller bites of the problem and the long term. The small bites won’t be baby steps but bold and far-reaching initiatives that each tackle an aspect of the larger problem. And many of our boldest but necessary steps may not bear fruit within our lifetimes.
Climate change and some of the largest environmental problems seem so overwhelming, complicated and long term that they aren’t easily seen as real threats but rather slip into the realm of the abstract, the “not real.” Climate change doesn’t have the immediacy of a mountain lion eyeing you hungrily or the kitchen in flames. Nevertheless, it is happening; its dire consequences are well established.
So, how do we solve it? There are no quick fixes, no silver bullets. There are, however, a number of pathways to the ultimate solution in what must be a multi-pronged approach to a huge problem. None of the pathways is an immediate fix but some may provide some short term benefit.
