Polls show that most Americans want Congress to address climate change. However, in the Official Voter Information Guide for the June 7 primary, climate change is mentioned by only two of the 21 candidates for Senator. Kamala Harris says she will "lead the fight against climate change," while a previously unknown candidate says "federal legislators are doing nothing to protect us from the threat of climate change," and he will not "sacrifice our actual climate to our political climate." http://voterguide.sos.ca.gov/candidates/us-senate-candidate-statements.htm
Meanwhile, a NASA website (http://climate.nasa.gov/) reports these facts:
Atmospheric carbon dioxide is at 403.28 ppm.
Global temperature has risen 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 1880.
Arctic sea ice area at the September minimum is trending downwards at 13.4% per decade.
Antarctic land ice is melting at an average rate of 134,000,000,000 metric tons/year.
Greenland ice is melting at an average rate of 287,000,000,000 metric tons/year.
Sea level is rising at an average rate of 3.4 mm/year.
NASA is speaking loud and clear. Why aren't the candidates listening?
