Voters must hold representatives accountable.
A report released by the White House amid the frenzy of Black Friday should at the very least provoke an honest debate about the future of our planet. The fourth National Climate Assessment Report authored by more than 300 researchers makes it abundantly clear climate change is real.
Let's put aside a president who claims to know more than the scientists and appears not to know the difference between weather and climate. I recall Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., bringing a snowball to the Senate floor and claiming it proved climate change was not real. It is no coincidence that he is from an oil-rich state. For those who claim climate change is not man-made, wouldn't the sensible action be to mitigate the change however and wherever possible rather than sitting around and waiting for disaster after disaster? Voters need to hold their representatives accountable.
