World Literacy Day and Climate Literacy

International (World) Literacy Day has taken place annually on September 8th since 1966.  Interestingly enough, I found myself reading the Paris Climate Agreement as the clock struck twelve to usher the day in.  I wanted to insure that as I spoke for the “Rise for Jobs, Climate, and Justice Rally” that I covered the major points of what many countries of the world agreed to in order to emphasize what those of us that support the agreement believe.
