About Durham Grandparents and Parents

for Action on Climate Change

As grandparents and parents, we look at the world our children and grandchildren will inherit with increasing alarm. Scientists the world over are telling us that if we don’t take action now to rein in global warming, the consequences in the years just ahead will be dire.

Durham Grandparents and Parents for Action on Climate Change therefore seeks to engage decision makers on a personal level, focusing on a
simple message: If governmental officials and the leaders of corporations and energy companies really care about their children and grandchildren (or anybody’s children and grandchildren), they need to take action now to slow climate change.

Grandparents, parents, and friends will bring this message—in person, whenever possible—to elected officials, government employees, corporate leaders.
