Letter to the editor: Bold action now

We are already seeing the effects of climate change and if we don’t take real action soon the effects will only grow more severe leaving our children with a grim future. We have waited too long in addressing this issue such that we can no longer afford to dither around the edges. That’s why, as a mom, I am so glad to see our elected officials tackling carbon pollution. The Climate Action Plan to Reduce Pollution (HB19-1261) is just the kind of bold action we need today.
Many people know of the potential for increased wildfires, droughts and disease we’ll see with climate change but not everyone is aware of the impacts to air pollution. Ozone pollution forms in the presence of heat. More hot days can lead to more ozone pollution which means more harm to those that are most vulnerable to air pollution – our children. Our kids count on us to protect them. For their sake, I hope Senator Zenzinger takes swift action to approve HB19-1261.
