Life on a farm has changed a lot over the past 12 years. Growing up on a farm allowed me to see firsthand the environmental impacts from climate change affect how my family continues farming. In 2008, the flooding that happened on our farm left our family having to spend the next few weeks repairing the damage and helping others out as they had it much worse than my family did. Now in 2020, my family still is having to deal with flooding along with other people who live near a flood zone. In 2032, will people still have to deal with major flooding events? Will people have spoken up enough for the climate to be in a place where flooding is not a major occurrence? The ability to make a change can happen for 2032 or even happen tomorrow can work by urging Sens. Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst to speak up in Congress in passing legislation for slowing down climate change for the future.
