Climate Change is the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment. Without drastic action today, adapting to these impacts in the future will be more difficult and costly. Straight Talk has invited three industry experts to participate in "Climate Change - On Your Doorstep" to generate a well rounded, informative and educational discussion to help us understand what can and should be done about climate change. Watch the Straight Talk episode on Rogers TV.
We have created this 'Together For Climate' group & website to outline action we can take individually and together. We support the youth and adults around the world demanding climate action, clean energy jobs and system change. More about our group here.
