Kudos to letter writer Ronald J. Trimmer for calling attention to the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus started by Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., and Ted Deutch, D-Fla. In our divided nation, it’s critical for citizens to support legislators who have the courage to reach across the aisle to work together for our common good.
March was the hottest March on record by a wide margin, and it was also the 11th consecutive month in which global temperature records were broken. Arctic biologist F. Stuart Chapin III has said that the planet is calling out, but no one is listening.
The Climate Solutions Caucus offers hope that this may be changing. Rep. Curbelo and Deutch are setting a great example for others to follow.
