  • Introduce self, background and briefly discuss Mercy Corps What I hope to convey today is the severity of climate change threat and that our approach to thinking about it needs us to radically alter the way we conceptualize major problems. Problems, like war, famine, financial recessions and depressions tend to be relatively short; less than 10 years and often less than five. That’s how we think – 5 year election cycles, 5 year plans. But thinking about climate is different. We need to think about action now to forestall impacts we’ll otherwise make in the next 20 years, that in turn can drastically affect our planet in the final half of this century and the next. For many in this room, this isn’t about you; it’s about your children, grandchildren and their kids in turn.
