"As a parent it is heartbreaking to see your three asthmatic children struggling to breathe every day. When you can’t breathe, nothing else matters. We were fortunate in that we could pick up and relocate to escape poor air quality. But there are many families that do not have that option. Reducing carbon pollution is not just about protecting my family’s health but putting healthy air safeguards in place to protect all families.” –Laura Kellogg, Mother, Wilmington, NC #ActOnClimate #COP21

“At Kamanu Composites we build carbon fiber outrigger canoes, an inherently energy intensive process. Because we build products that are to be used in our Hawaiian oceans, which are vulnerable to the effects of climate -- like acidification and sea level rise -- mitigating some of our greenhouse gases by running our shop off renewable energy was an easy first step to make on our journey towards sustainable manufacturing.” –Luke Evslin, Kamanu Composites, Kailua, HI #ActOnClimate #COP21

“We have growing concerns about how climate change will impact our environment, like how it will impact the salmon, flooding of the lower village, & ocean warming & acidification that will affect the razor clams that we rely on for subsistence. We need to take action now in order to mitigate and adapt to current and future changes, so we can move forward without losing the traditions and lifestyles the Quinault people know.” – Carolyn Kelly, Quinault Nation, Taholah, WA #ActonClimate #COP21

“The Tribe is working on climate change impacts that are here now. For example, we have seen toxic blue green algae blooms in the Mad River for the last 4 years running. Traditionally beautiful swimming and fishing areas are now suspect. I want a predictable future, and when my son comes to me with his worries about the climate of his future (and the future of good swimming holes), I can say ‘sweetheart, I’m working on it.’” – Jana Ganion, Blue Lake Rancheria Tribe, Blue Lake, CA…
