Connie Young 9-25-2014 - Overcoming climate change

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 Our message was loud and clear: We want world leaders do their part to help fix the problem of climate change.

While 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.

The 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.
