Our Children Won’t Forgive Us

Posted: October 4, 2012

It is clear where the candidates stand on climate change. To laughter at the Republican convention, Mitt Romney scoffed at President Obama’s pledge to begin healing the earth and stopping sea-level rise.

Both candidates should be trying to come up with strong legislation to reduce our carbon footprint. Although President Obama has done some things, such as increase vehicular gas mileage, much more must be done.

We need a level playing field on energy production, which puts a price on carbon; the thing that 97 percent of climate scientists say causes our problems. Listen carefully: Our children and grandchildren will not forgive us if we screw this up.
