"Activists are deploying the moral authority of mothers to push for climate action. Their protests must steer clear of nap time."
"Many of you write to us and tell us about your feelings of powerlessness in the face of a global climate catastrophe. That sentiment is giving rise to a small but potentially potent force in the climate movement: moms, who have been catapulted into action by the hazards facing their children.
In Brooklyn, moms are taking aim at the world’s biggest asset manager, BlackRock.
In Phoenix, Pittsburgh and Denver, moms are pushing lawmakers in Congress for climate legislation.
In London, Lahore and Delhi, moms are pushing their governments to clean up the air from the very pollutants that warm the planet."
