Letitia Webster represents many industry leaders who are ready to invest in sustainability, counteracting the myth that reducing our reliance on fossil fuels will be bad for businesses.

We can choose to respond with courage, making necessary changes to our businesses and our lives. Or we can remain stuck in denial and fear while the seas rise and the planet overheats. Which sounds more in keeping with the American character?
