Action needed now to address climate
Every day, we have news stories about how critical the changing climate is to our future.
Firefighters are battling fires while losing their own homes, farms and ranches.
They say they’ve never seen fires like these — almost 3 million acres lost already this year just in the United States.
The fire season starts earlier and ends later.
People may again lose their homes to stronger hurricanes that come fast and furious in a season that begins earlier and ends later.
Farmers who grow our food face floods or drought, loss of pollinators and broken supply chains.
How can they grow our food if this continues to happen?
These are Americans, our neighbors, family and friends, who are letting us know that things are NOT OK, lives are changing, and we are forcing that change.
These disasters are costing lives and billions of dollars.
We can’t fool ourselves into thinking our own future won’t be affected in some way.
Other Americans already face personal crises they couldn’t imagine would happen to them.
I think we owe it to them to see what we can all do personally to create a better future. We are all in this together.
And on a nationwide scale we need to have our Congress support a major infrastructure and budget overhaul to address climate change.
It has been put off for too long and now we have to make it happen and hope it is not too late.
Covid response not in keeping with Bible
I very much appreciated the Aug. 15 letter (“Puzzled by Christian stance on vaccines”) by Anita Paul in The Sunday Gazette.
As I am also a Bible-believing Christian, the no-vaccine no-mask portion of our community does indeed stray from the message of Jesus Christ.
We are to love each other as the greatest of all commandments.
Scripture to support the no-vaccine no-mask Christians would be enlightening at best.
Always hopeful that the Light will shine in the darkness.
Thanks to Biden for massive ineptitude
Thank you, President Biden, for all you have done for American tax-paying citizens.
A great example (for those children who no longer learn real history in school) on how not to withdraw from a war torn country.
For rising gas prices and oil dependency again, after all, paying $1.25 for gas was so boring.
For helping the spread of covid through the movement of thousands of undocumented immigrants to every state in the darkness of night.
For opening our borders to the cartel and drugs of all kinds. For the wonderful images of children being dumped over the fences and left to die.
For appointing such inept people in every key position in D.C.
For having a vice president who stands for nothing and showing us how you truly feel about women’s rights by leaving the Afghan women to fend for themselves.
But truly I do thank you for telling King Cuomo to resign after he sent over 15,000 seniors to their deaths, let the whole world know that because he is Italian, he can’t control himself around women and for keeping our taxes so high.
All these statements are verified and documented facts, not fabricated to push an agenda.
But I am sure any comment made about this will always include President Trump and Fox News because these facts can’t be disputed, the images have been seen by all everywhere. Is anyone out there brave enough to admit that the Biden administration is truly inept?
