"This is the first truly global problem that we’ve ever faced…. The [fossil fuel corporations] are rogue companies. If they follow their business plan, the planet tanks…. This is the biggest battle we’ve ever faced as a civilization, and we have to tackle it *now.*…. There’s no guarantee that we’re going to win, but there is a guarantee that we’re going to fight."
