I support the United States honoring its commitments under the Paris Climate Agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. There is a short window of opportunity to save our planet from global warming and we must act now.
The consensus that humans are causing recent global warming is shared by 90%–100% of publishing climate scientists according to six independent studies analyzed in a recent research paper 1. According to a 2015 survey by the National Surveys on Energy and the Environment (NSEE), 70% of Americans believe that climate change is real2. Clearly, there is support from the American people for the United States to do its part to save our precious environment.
Doing the right thing rarely comes without sacrifice. Granted, it will be costly for the United States to implement changes to limit greenhouse gas emissions. However, we must also contemplate the present and future expenditures for infrastructure and disaster relief necessary to combat the effects of global warming on our climate and rising sea levels. The United States has always been a leader in technology and development. Countries that invest in clean energy and technology research today will be economically rewarded in a lucrative industry that is the way of the future.
Please give your support for America to lead the world in clean technology innovation and stewardship of our planet.
