Confronting the climate crisis

In the lifetime of a child born today, 20 to 30 percent of species worldwide will face increased risk of extinction if we do not stabilize global temperatures. Larry Schweiger, president and CEO of National Wildlife Federation, reviews the urgency of the rapidly unfolding climate crisis. He discusses how NWF and others are recasting the climate crisis from an environmental issue to a societal one. He shows that by bringing new messages and messengers to the table, we can reduce global warming pollution, recharge America's economy and protect America's natural resources.
