Don Gaede - February 2018, not published - China Peak snow



2-3-2018

Marek Warszowski’s article about the financial woes of China Peak demonstrates another way that climate change is going to be bad for business--especially the ski business.  Climate scientists say this year’s snow no-show is likely to be part of long-term trend; they predict a 50% decline in Sierra snow pack by the end of the century.

Not surprisingly, climate change has been a top priority of America’s ski industry for at least 15 years.  Their very existence depends on a cool climate.

The National Ski Areas Association website says “Climate change presents challenges to the ski industry that require proactive planning, bold action and leadership.”  They advocate reducing the carbon emissions of their operations through energy efficiency, as well as legislation on climate change solutions.  They also encourage skiers to ask their legislators to act to prevent climate change.

So I call on all skiers, snowboarders, snowmobilers, and other lovers of snow to contact Reps. Devin Nunes, David Valadao, and Jim Costa.  Ask them to pass legislation now to help protect our winter snowpack, and help keep China Peak in business.

Don Gaede - January 2018 - not published - Climate Change a Clear and Present Danger



1-14-2018

As Peter McDonald noted in his Jan. 12 letter, the cost of climate change is beginning to be felt, and as it turns out, it's not going to come cheap.

It is one thing to commit an error, but to do nothing when you know better—that’s just plain stupidity.  Our nation’s best scientific institutions--NASA, the National Academy of Sciences, and the American College of Physicians--have given us fair warning about the threat of climate change.   It is irresponsible and negligent for our congressional representatives to sit on their hands in the face of this threat. 

Winston Churchill said, “I never worry about action, but only inaction.”  Climate change, we know now, is a clear and present danger.  We should be electing representatives who are not afraid to act, to protect both our bank accounts and our lives.
