Letter: Time to act on climate change


As a student at Washington State University who is interested in public service, I attended a speech by Yoram Bauman at WSU Vancouver in April. He discussed his involvement with Initiative 732 and CarbonWA.

CarbonWA is a grass-roots organization located throughout the state with hopes of spreading the word about a pivotal environmental policy initiative that will be on the ballot this November.

With a team dedicated to fighting climate change through community outreach across the state, including here in Clark County, if Initiative 732 passes it will set the groundwork for states across the U.S. to implement similar policies.

With summer temperatures reaching an all-time high in areas across the globe, it is becoming evident that climate change policy is relevant more than ever. It is important that people here in Clark County become involved with CarbonWA and volunteer in hopes of achieving a historical leap for climate change policy here in the United States.
