- Location: CA 94710
- Marching Since: October 27, 2005
I’m marching because it’s the right thing to do. Global warming is the greatest threat our planet has ever faced. I also believe that business helped create global warming, and business should take the lead creating solutions.
As the owner and founder of Clif Bar & Co. I’ve learned from experience that it’s good business to run a green business. Our global economy will benefit from the concrete actions we take to solve global warming. As we usher in a world powered by clean, renewable energy we’ll create jobs, stimulate the economy, promote energy independence, and protect our nation’s health. Left unchecked, global warming will destroy the very resource base our economy depends on.
I’m also marching because I’m a father. I want my children to inherit a planet where the natural world thrives, a planet with clean air, unpolluted water, healthy food, and a stable climate, I want my children to delight in the same beautiful fields of the Sierra Nevada where my father took me as a child.
