A dearth of political will has impeded the fight against climate change for decades, but as environmentalist Al Gore attests, political will is a renewable resource. At the World Economic Forum’s Sustainability Development Impact Summit in New York in 2018, Gore argued that the solution to climate change requires local, regional and national governments to broaden how they tackle the crisis – a cure-all that sounds simpler in its explanation than its execution. Nevertheless, until society heeds Gore’s message, the climate crisis will continue to devastate the planet and all that live on it.
