We are not alone on this earth. We have a responsibility to respect all life and find solutions. As caregivers, nurses are called to nurture, protect and heal. Changing climate patterns are occurring globally at unprecedented rates. Rising temperatures and sea levels, and more extreme weather significantly impact our air, water, food and our health.
As the nation's most trusted professionals, and with an understanding of how climate change impacts all areas of healthcare, nurses are in a unique position to inform and inspire others to take action … Calling all of us to care for ourselves, others and our planet, to ensure a healthy future for everyone. Margaret Mead said it best, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
