In regard to the Aug. 4 Focus article “Climate push may be next Obamacare”: It is a shame that our governor and legislature must not watch the news or read the newspaper.
If they did, they would see the drought and horrific fires that are happening in California. They would also see the record hot temperatures in Portland and Seattle. They must have missed the flooding that took place in Texas a couple of months ago.
The Pentagon has said that our national security is at stake as the effects of climate change become worse. Our produce prices will rise as the drought in California continues.
It is time that our state government leaders realize that climate change will have negative effects on North Carolina and the rest of the country. It is time that our leaders join the fight against climate change.
For the sake of future generations, we must not turn a blind eye to what is taking place in this country and the world.
