"The most important lesson from the COVID-19 crisis is that it is only governments that have the scale, authority and financial capacity to respond to challenges of this size. The scale of the fiscal response to COVID-19 shows that, when a government takes a problem seriously and commits to dealing with it, the finances to get the problem fixed can be found and the spending is supported by the general population. The implications for action on climate change are obvious. The fact that governments have not acted at sufficient speed and scale to deal with the climate crisis is not a matter of lacking the resources – it is lacking political will." - Luke Hilakari
“Any seasoned union campaigner worth her salt loves a contract fight because it has a hard deadline that focuses everyone’s attention—expiration and a strike threat. Climate science gives us a new deadline and an opportunity to show that we’re up to the task. We have 9 years.” - Nate Green
