It’s a new day when a letter written to President Biden from 17 Republican freshmen states, “We hope we will rise above the partisan fray to barter significant change for People throughout the nation and preserve the USA’ standing as one of the best nation on the planet.” (NPR Jan. 20) As Rep. Burgess Owen’s constituent, I’m inspired to see him as a signator.
Many People are greater than able to stroll away from the divisive rhetoric of the previous and now count on their Members of Congress to satisfy on the negotiating desk with members from throughout the aisle. One crucial dialog on the desk is that of our local weather. Local weather scientist Katharine Hayhoe’s phrases succinctly clarify the context during which this dialog ought to happen: “A thermometer isn’t Democrat or Republican. It doesn’t give us a special quantity relying on how we vote. And local weather change isn’t a liberal or conservative problem. It’s a human problem.”
Thanks, Rep. Owens, for promising to work with our president. As one within the majority of Utahans who consider within the actuality of local weather change, I sit up for the progress you’ll make as you “negotiate for significant change.” We’d ask that the human problem of local weather change be addressed in order that we develop into the “greatest nation on the planet” to guide on making a protected and wholesome widespread dwelling.
