We at Green Yachts, unfortunately, do not pretend to believe that every boater is concerned about climate change and how it is rapidly affecting our planet and our oceans.

But this blog post does not try to convince anyone to believe differently than they do now.

The goal of this blog post is to convince those boaters who do realize that the scientific evidence about climate change clearly shows that climate change is unfortunately happening to take action. Help us address the rapidly escalating impact of climate change we see manifested everywhere from Australian coral reefs to California wildfires to Atlantic hurricane frequency and in

Greta Thunberg recently put out a tweet that haunts me. It points

t that 1/3rd of all global warming emissions have been created since 2005 - when Greta was two years old.  And, half of all global warming emissions have been created since 1990.



This makes me realize despite the Paris Accords and other agreements that lead us to believe we are beginning to make headway on addressing climate change, we are instead literally throwing gasoline onto the fire.

More action to significantly address climate change is required of all of us. I hope each boater reading this blog commits themselves to take one significant action this year to reduce their contribution to climate change. Green

 Yachts is leading the electric revolution on the water and makes it possible for you to choose that your next boat is electric. But even if this is not the step you take, maybe instead you decide your next car will be electric or you are going to put solar on your roof (before federal tax credits go down from 26% in 2020 to 22% in 2021 and 10% in 2022). Whatever your action, please, after reading this post, commit yourself to taking action. If that action is getting an electric boat, we at Green Yachts look forward to helping you achieve this goal.
