Overcoming climate change
I appreciated The Bee's coverage of
rising CO2 emissions and the People's Climate March (Sept. 22). The more
people who understand the threat of climate change, the sooner we will
summon the courage to get it under control.
I participated in the
People's Climate March in Fresno, along with farmers, business people,
tradespeople, faith leaders, professors and many others. We marched in
solidarity with over 23 million people participating in 2,808 events in
166 countries (per 350.org). Our message was loud and clear: We want
world leaders do their part to help fix the problem of climate change.
the march will help jump-start government action, there is much to be
done. Members of Citizens' Climate Lobby will continue marching together
to the hallowed halls of Congress to do something radical -- work with
elected officials to pass a revenue-neutral carbon fee with dividend.

U.S. has led the world in confronting and overcoming seemingly
insurmountable problems in the past, and we can do it again. All we need
is confidence, determination and political will.
