Politics First

The plant sync focuses on home gardening as a means to directly mitigate and adapt to climate change.

Individual actions are important. Indeed, our motto is:

“Our response to climate change must include everybody; everyday; everything; everywhere.”

The plant sync uses gardening as a platform to emphasize the most important climate actions. The top priority is to decarbonize our energy supply. We must generate the political will for effective public policy that rapidly transitions the entire world from carbon-based energy to clean energy. Political will is created through advocacy and voting. Climate change will not be meaningfully slowed by gardening, or anything else, without urgent, vigorous political engagement by billions of people.*

Perhaps the positions of the (generally) conservative business community will be persuasive for climate change deniers.
