What is your view on the science of man-made climate change? Do you support action to reduce the output of greenhouse gases? If so, what steps do you favor?
Climate change is evidenced in the increasing severity and frequency of storms. To have three 500 to 1,000 year storms in a 5 year period, that has brought unprecedented flooding to the United States, a higher average yearly temperature, and measurable rises in sea levels show the effects of climate change. We can take innovative actions to sequester green house gases. We can plant trees to contain carbon for a short time, use cleaner fuels, use renewable resources, and encourage the use of alternative energy sources in the developing world. Providing leadership on the world stage can help make a significant difference, especially where emerging economies rely upon dirty fuel sources.
