“There are nine Sectors in the plan; here are your assignments:
Jen Errate – You will, of course, head up the Energy Sector including the development of electrical storage and microgrids.
Aggie Culture – The farm program will be right up your alley. Managed grazing and other techniques that build and store carbon in the soil are some of the priorities for the Agriculture Sector.
Dow N. D’Rhode – It’s time to increase green public transit and expand infrastructure for hybrid and electric vehicles through the Transportation Sector.
Les Flooding – Our wet lands that soak up floodwater have decreased and degraded. The Resilient Systems Sector can use your expertise.
Newt Jobbs – The transition to a green economy will generate thousands of new career possibilities. Please take charge of the Clean Economy Sector program.
Ed U. Caytum – All of us need to learn more about the realities of climate change and how to meet the challenges it presents. Lead the way in the Education Sector.
Phil R. Tummies – We’ve got to do a better job of supporting local food systems and reducing food waste. Managing the Food Systems Sector is your mission.
May Pultree – Reforestation and “keeping forests as forests” is another key piece. Get rolling on the Forestry Sector.
Finally, Wanda B. Morefair – Too often folks on the fringes of society have borne the brunt of environmental injustice. The Climate Justice & Equity Sector needs your guidance,“ Bucky concluded.
Bucky’s team will spend many nights at the round table organizing reforms needed to reduce the negative impacts of climate change, but they can’t do it alone. If we are to be successful in protecting the Wisconsin we all hold dear, every one of us needs to do our part.
Changing old habits and routines can be uncomfortable. But change also opens an abundance of opportunities to build a prosperous, healthier, more vibrant world. It’s time to embrace that change. After all, what choice to do we have? This is the only home we’ll ever know; it’s where we’re all forever… Earthbound.
