Nobody's in a position to wave a magic wand and make global warming stop.

One of the frustrating things about dealing with the issue is its vastness. 

But many people have pointed out the need for action within our communities, and that's what CivicSpark is about. 

It is an AmericaCorps program charged by California's governor with helping local communities address climate change. 

Larry Goldberg and Hanna Nielsen work with CivicSpark on the North Coast; they give us an explanation of intentions and actions.
