Nobel Laureate Sherwood Rowland, speaking to a 1997 White House roundtable on climate change, asked: “Is it enough for a scientist simply to publish a paper? Isn’t it the responsibility of scientists, if you believe that you have found something that can affect the environment, isn’t it your responsibility to actually do something about it, enough so that action actually takes place? If not us, who? If not now, when?” Let this great man’s words inspire you to act – Your Climate Change
