Today is Earth Day, and I’ve never been so concerned about the future of our planet. Climate change is real, and it won’t just affect our children and grandchildren decades down the road – it’s impacting us right now with extreme weather and rising seas. Rather than tackle this challenge, President Trump wants to pretend it isn’t happening.
We can’t be held back by climate change deniers, and we can’t allow our only planet to be sold out to oil and gas companies. We should do what America does best: build the future. Invest in clean energy, create green jobs, and support our fellow Americans who are left behind by this transition.
We don’t need to trash our planet to create jobs. That’s the old way of thinking. Join me in embracing the future!
