Claremont is rich in many resources, not the least of which are the smart, active and involved residents.  One of the most prominent is Evaggelos Vallianatos, Ph.D ,an ecopolitical theorist and environmental strategist, historian and outspoken activist in the fight against global warming.  He describes this struggle as a matter of life-and-death for us all.  In the first of what is planned to be a series of forthright and pointed interviews,  Dr. Vallianatos posits that Claremont could, should - must - be a leader in this fight, and how Claremont could lead by example.  Claremont's leadership in this regard - if the city leaders, businesses and residents so choose to accept the challenge - would benefit Claremont environmentally, financially, and by increasing the value of living in the city, all while making valuable and effective local contributions against global warming.   One may not be able to change the world,  but the measures to change things locally are well within reach.
