Letters to the Editor

All elected officials can do their part

Climate change? Global warming? Even if you are not on board with these issues, you know our world is changing. More heat. More cold. More forest fires and floods. Rivers, air, oceans, and lands are polluted. Fisherman, farmers, homeowners, and tourists across the country see that our world is changing. And there are solutions.

We have elected officials to act. U.S. Sens. Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst need to seize the opportunity to support, even co-sponsor, the Green New Deal and the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.

All Iowa legislators need to support alternative energy to lower our carbon footprint, and support business that are trying to do the same. All need to help the family farmer, green businesses, and businesses trying to become green.

More ordinary people, counties, cities and countries are doing what they can. Please do the same and support them. Please do not stand by and watch our water, air, land be destroyed.
