Congress late to act on climate change
In the AJC article, “The relationship between hurricanes and climate change,” News, Aug. 27, it is reported that the impact of climate change on hurricanes is not precise but it does affect them.
As a concerned, frequent voter, I am perturbed Congress has not yet passed legislation that would reduce fossil fuel dependence which contributes to global warming. Congress should have acted 20 years ago. It is 2017! We need action by Congress now. Ask them to support a bipartisan carbon pricing proposal with the fee returned to households. It will expedite the exit from a dirty to a clean-powered economy while providing support for low-income households and cost projections big businesses need to retool/invent a sustainable future. If we do not reduce greenhouse emissions, our beautiful and talented kids will witness increasingly threatening weather events.
