It’s been almost two years since I sat down across a table from the President of the United States, but I will never forget his words: “Your job is to push me.”
It was those six words that echoed in my mind last week as I stood on the National Mall and watched President Obama use his inaugural address to forcefully place climate action at the top of his agenda.
The inaugural address felt like both a validation of all the work we’ve been doing, and a renewed call to action. We’ve come a long way since that meeting on the eve of Power Shift 2011, but we’re not done pushing.
That’s why on Feb. 17, I’m heading back to the National Mall — and I need you there with me.
