“As I watched my teenager turn into a young adult while I tried to stop gas expansion upstream, I started to feel anxious about climate impacts on potential grandkids, so if anything the worries are worse. Like you, I never ever in my wildest dreams thought I'd be doing any of this.” Connect with Leanne on LinkedIn.
