The climate crisis
Science has been explaining to us, ‘we must act,’ for the last fifty years. Up until now, we’ve not been serious in mitigating and adapting to climate change.
We have no time to remain passive observers; waiting for some automatic trigger, as a cue to act. Economic damage world-wide, environmental harms, and a diminished quality of life is accelerating. Climate change is impacting us.
The evidence is presented every single year. Historic fires in California and Colorado; record rainfall flooding at Houston and river flooding in Iowa; tidal flooding as never before seen in Miami; with heat and humidity climbing overall.
Up to now, we are as if, people living in the ancient city of Pompeii. We experience growing quakes and lava spews from Mount Vesuvius and continue doing what we have been doing and wait. That didn’t work out well for Pompeii’s residents. Instead, let’s prepare to endure and limit the menacing impact from a climate change.
Demand your Iowa city and county create a climate crisis plan.
On the other hand, if you don’t demand action, scientists already know how that will work out for you and your offspring. Listen to the scientists.
