Former president Barack Obama was invited to speak on Wednesday, during an international conference at the Green Build Expo, where he pointed out the advantages of environmentally sustainable construction.
His administration work with the Paris Climate Accords was among the main highlights during his speaking agenda while he also broached how human behavior has been one of the main indicators of causing climate change. Additionally, he talked how our lifestyle, working patterns and city designs have to be drastically altered.
“I’m all about logic and reason and fact,” Obama said, adding, “Obviously, that’s contested these days.”
Obama sure knows and names that climate change has a severe effect in human existence and stressed the importance of equity in order to solve sustainability and climate issues.
Environment and global warming concerns tend to grow more prominent at the 2020 elections and despite the writing is on the wall, climate change is, according to Obama, one of those things where you can be too late.
Despite the urgency that is surfaced from his speech, Obama did not disregard to emphasize on how important it is to close as much as possible the huge gaps in wealth, work and opportunity if they are to be solved any sustainability and climate change issues.
Atlanta is more reflected on that view as it has repeatedly earned the questioning title of “Income inequality capital of America”.
