Give the gift of a future | Letter

Give your friends and family the best gift you could give them: a FUTURE. Vote YES on Initiative 1631.

Why? Climate change IS caused by CO2 emissions and IS already affecting them: Smoke at Washington State University gave my son bronchitis; his buddy’s dorm at Texas A&M evacuated from flooding; friends in Iowa experienced massive downpours stripping topsoil from farmland, sending contaminated sediments into rivers. The in-laws’ town burned in California. Increasingly intense storms like Florence, Michael, Olivia and Sergio are destroying lives in the South, Hawaii and the Southwest. There are also increasing costs to the destruction of our natural resources, especially our water resources, fauna and forests.

Climate change is happening everywhere, worldwide, and our children’s health and lives are already being affected. We have very little time to prevent the ever-worsening affects and exorbitant costs of global tragedy. I-1631 is a step in the right direction.

Please join me in giving hope for our future by voting YES on I-1631. When the approaching holidays come, consider donating to those already affected by climate disasters, because Hell is NOT going to freeze over, but the Arctic IS continuing to melt.
