Letter to the Editor: Climate should be the top issue

Posted

Journalists; TV, radio, print, on-line; and concerned citizens, when questioning political candidates from all parties and at all levels on their positions on issues, please be sure to ask them what their positions are on climate change/global warming.

Do they agree that the negative effects have already started — higher atmospheric and ocean temperatures, rising sea levels, floods, melting glaciers, more wildfires? Do they agree that burning fossil fuels is causing increased greenhouse gasses that cause global warming? Do they agree that actions must be taken to reduce the rate of increasing greenhouse gasses — reduce the burning of fossil fuels, accelerate the conversion to solar and wind sources of energy? What do they propose to do to meet the threat of climate change/global warming?

Voters need and deserve to know the positions of political candidates on this critical issue in order to make informed decisions. So far, candidates have not been pinned down on their positions.

Dick Sugg,
Golden
