How to Fight Global Warming

    I refuse to gamble on this matter of global warming because it's my grandkids' future!

There are things each of can do to fight against global warming! To do nothing is… is what?... to do nothing is unforgivable! So, get on with it!
by Charlie Leck

Several readers of yesterday’s blog emailed me with the very direct and obvious question: “So, what can we do? Really!”

I answered each email with some ideas about how we can be involved in convincing our “powers that be” that the U.S. must get on the band-wagon with other nations of the world and commit to fighting global warming with strict regulations concerning industrial emission standards.

Now, today, I read a NY Times column by Eric Klinenberg that outlines how we must keep our nation’s leaders conscious of the problem. This is a good piece and it should be read by all of you. So, give it some attention. After all, it’s Sunday morning and you’ve got a few moments to read some worthwhile stuff – and this is really worth the time you’ll spend reading it.

Some industries do not want to make the necessary adjustment to limit emissions and they spend millions to lobby Congress not to pass stronger regulations. We, as individual citizens, must make our voices heard in Congress, speaking up for stringent regulations that match those of other leading nations which have chosen to fight global warming.

The U.S. must join with other nations to fight global warming. Our national voice must not be absent.

Again, let me remind you that this is a fight you must wage for your grandchildren!

“For the moment, we have an opportunity to make fundamental changes to the way our country deals with the environment, changes that would lock in public acceptance of climate change. But we have to act quickly — not only because the crisis is urgent, but because one good blizzard could change a lot of minds.” [Eric Klinenberg]
