With Greta Thunberg in town today, we took the environmental discussion around climate change and sustainability down to the local level. We invited Sam Spencer, chair of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Planning Committee; and David Valder, director of energy and sustainability at Central Piedmont Community College and co-founder and co-owner of Crown Town Compost, to discuss what can be done at a governmental, institutional and individual level to fight back against the overwhelming crisis we’re faced with.
