The West Coast is burning. California’s governor recently stated that climate change is no longer debatable. The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season may become record-setting. As of October 15, 2020, there have been 25 named storms, nine hurricanes and three major hurricanes. The Arctic has had 100-degree heat. The people of Iowa have seen thousands of acres of crops destroyed by a Derecho wind event.
These climate emergencies remind us that unaddressed climate change costs lives, destroys property, ends livelihoods, and undermines the health of people and communities. It is imperative that states and their municipalities, as well as the federal government, increase their commitment to transition away from fossil fuels to renewable energy as quickly as possible.
