You know it's pretty clear that we are approaching a climate crisis. It's not in the headlines anymore, but it's time to sound the alarm. Frankly, I'm really sick of this phony science that tries to disprove it all; it's so clear. The snow pack is melting in the mountains, the ice caps are melting in the poles, the currents of the oceans are changing radically, there are droughts all over the world, like never before. I've been working to make kids healthy and ready for school and to make the streets in our communities safe and for a living wage for all of us. But we can't afford to worry about any of that if we don't have air to breath. The climate issue has to be our top priority. And it is my top priority.
It's my passion but it's also my experience. I was trained as an environmental lawyer so understand both the science and the laws we need to enact. It's also going to require leadership, not just technical knowledge, but literally bringing the world together. Because we are all going to have to change the way we live our lives. It's going to be my top priority to address the climate crisis, so we have a habitable planet.
