NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
I appreciate your editorial “Boehner, House complain, but refuse to act.”
Unfortunately, immigration is not the only issue on which the president is forced to act because of Congress’ failure to act. Global warming is another important issue Congress refuses to deal with, and the result is new EPA regulations on existing power plants that will reduce greenhouse gases.
Recently, more than 600 Citizens Climate Lobby volunteers from all over the country traveled to Washington, D.C., on their own dime to ask their representatives to support an alternative free-market approach to EPA regulations. We met with more than 500 congressional offices to voice our concern about our rapidly changing climate and to search for common ground to move forward on.
Citizens Climate Lobby has a goal of having a local chapter in every congressional district working with every legislator on the global warming issue.
Pennsylvania is rapidly adding chapters with recent additions in Pittsburgh, Sunbury and Lehigh Valley. New chapters are in the works in West Chester and State College as well.
Readers concerned about global warming and the legacy we are leaving our children can find us at www.citizensclimatelobby.org.
Global warming will not go away by itself and will certainly only worsen our immigration problem as refugees flee from countries that can’t afford to deal with the worsening conditions that global warming is bringing.
