The science on climate change is clear, so why aren’t San Francisco’s leaders listening? Why doesn’t SF have panels of climate scientists working on what the city needs to do to survive? Why do our leaders instead listen to the richest, most connected, loudest, and whitest voices while ignoring or downplaying the science?
Students in our schools know more about climate change than the people our local politicians respond to. These people who have the ears of our leaders can’t change the reality of the science. Ignoring science can destroy San Francisco. When will SF’s leaders care enough about the city to actually do their jobs? When will they care enough about the future to make sure we have one?
