A Decade of Climate: Can I Still Hope?

I Am A Hypocrite, Too.

The word hypocrite makes my blood boil, truly. My eyebrows furrow and I get a glint in my eye, as I prepare my defensive speech. I don’t think I’m the sole person to react this way. Being called a hypocrite directly attacks a person’s values and identity. And yet here I am, acknowledging that I…
