A few years ago in Nairobi, Kenya, I met Helene Gayle, President and CEO of CARE. Helene's vision and passion for improving the lives of women and girls were evident. Each woman that we encountered told a personal story of creating a better life for her family as a result of CARE's work. It was clear that Helene is leading the charge of "Defending Dignity. Fighting Poverty."
Climate change is one of the greatest moral disasters of human history, because the people who will suffer the most have been the least responsible for its cause. Those of us in the developed countries somehow think that we will escape its results, turning away from the hundreds of millions who will be caught in the whirlwind of misery that is coming.
