Video Transcript

I think that people have not made the connection as much as they should between their own actions, in terms of the cars they purchase, the kind of house they buy, and the greenhouse gas emissions that are changing the earth's climate. So that's one reason why you need action at the federal level, because individuals making their individual choices, you know, they just don't see the direct impact of their choices on the environment. And they can rationalize that their individual choice by itself doesn't make much difference. So if you want to have collective action, you have to act collectively at a national level.
