Tom Schlesinger, Executive Director of the La Crosse nonprofit Climate Alliance for the Common Good, appeared on WXOW to talk about the importance of taking action to address climate change. He spoke with Carly Swisher, in an interview published on July 5, 2023. "Climate change is one of the biggest threats in the coming century to people everywhere, and one of our slogans is local action global change," Tom Schlesinger said. "...we can't sit back idly and wait for that to happen, so there's a lot individuals can do." He initiated the effort to talk about climate change with WXOW.
One way to get started is simply to start. From recycling to planting a few pollinator plants, any start is worth the effort.
