Amidst the clamor of environmental crises, few are able to stand out as singularly catastrophic as climate change. Indeed, its effects are felt across continents and oceans – from flooding in coastal areas to erratic weather events such as hurricanes battering communities across the globe.
Despite the magnitude of this issue, it is not one for which we can simply wait until technology or legislation develops to offer an answer. It is imperative that we address this crisis now so as not to lose any opportunity for success in our quest towards sustainable development.
In a bid to provide a solution, I recently had the privilege of observing the unveiling of the Environmental Agency established by our government – an agency with the power to make a real difference on our planet’s health!
When tasked with taking on the daunting task of reviving America’s economy, President Trump launched a bold initiative: to turn around America. At his recent State of the Union address, he declared that we must rebuild our nation – and eradicate its lingering wounds of poverty and injustice. This new economic agenda is grounded in an unyielding commitment to fiscal conservatism, yet it also recognizes that restoring prosperity requires more than just cutting taxes – it necessitates a comprehensive plan for improving all aspects wherein opportunity exists.
It has been nearly three years since the launch of the EPA’s ambitious mission: protecting human health and creating a more sustainable environment while ensuring public health. Under Administrator Scott Pruitt’s administration, this tenet has become even more prominent – evidenced by the agency’s initiatives relating to climate change mitigation, such as its policies preventing food waste and safeguarding waterways; as well as programs like Energy Star certification aimed at reducing consumption of fossil fuels while providing renewable power options.
1. The Environmental Defense Fund
The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) is a powerful environmental organization with nationwide reach. Established in 1970, this philanthropic foundation advocates for a cleaner environment and offers efficient solutions to protect against future pollution within our society.
The EDF’s structure is unique, as it does not include a governing board. Instead, its Leadership Council comprises renowned figures from numerous fields such as science, business, politics – even entertainment! These esteemed individuals are able to guide the group toward more effective and impactful decisions regarding all matters pertaining to its mission.
Whatever one’s expertise may be, there usually exists an opportunity to lend your influence toward positive change. Now that is an appealing prospect indeed!
2. The Nature Conservancy
If you’re seeking a way to give back to the environment while helping to preserve biodiversity on our planet, consider investing in The Nature Conservancy. This renowned non-profit is home to numerous environmentally-conscious projects around the globe that strive for conservation and preservation of endangered species.
The Nature Conservancy was founded in 1948 as an outgrowth of a conservation initiative led by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and has since grown into a multilayered platform for action – offering financial assistance for those dedicated to preserving this earth’s fragile ecology.
