Climate Change: 15 Years Left

February 24, 2014

Dear Congresswoman Pelosi:

I want to thank you for your efforts in combatting climate change. I fear that our country and China are not taking the problem seriously enough.  A recent New York Times article on the subject found that scientists are saying that “[a]nother 15 years of failure to limit carbon emissions could make the problem virtually impossible to solve with current technologies.” Your efforts at solving the problem are extremely important, indeed, they may be the most important issue you face in Congress right now. I hope you continue to make climate change your top priority.

Thank you.

UPDATE: I received a letter back from Congresswoman Pelosi.  The letter stated that she agrees that energy policy is an important issue and spoke about how many things she has already supported in Congress that is trying to combat climate change and support energy independence.
