Written by Sven Thesen
Public awareness of global climate change was jolted to life by the 2006 release of the Al Gore movie “An Inconvenient Truth”. Global climate change became a common theme on the evening news. A media-fueled debate raged with climate change skeptics. What is the state of global climate change 8 years later? Is there an Action Plan? Do you have an Action Plan? Should you have one? Sven Thesen will share his thoughts on Climate Change, patriotism, honor and duty. Come decide what you can personally do to impact global climate change?
