People must push politicians on climate
Re: “Climate change: our challenge,” Aug. 6 commentary:
Recent heat waves all over Virginia have shown the nasty, more personal side of climate change — I almost suffered heat exhaustion myself a few weeks ago.
There are so many things that can be done to slow or stop global warming.
The main focus should be on having our political leaders to take action. That is why we should rejoice that President Obama has proposed a bold climate action plan.
Americans are ready to take on the challenge of climate change and to work toward a clean energy future.
We are capable, beyond measure, to take the lead in creating new industries, jobs and cost-efficient energy solutions.
It is time to act together to ensure a safer and cleaner world for our descendants.
We are to blame for bad news
Almost daily there are articles in the newspaper about global warming and who and what is responsible. In my opinion, the fault lies with us. America has been blessed beyond belief but has turned her back on God.
As a result, God is turning his back on America, and we are reaping what we have sown. Look at the world: The Middle East is on fire with wars and rebellion. America and Europe are near financial collapse. Terrorism is rampant worldwide. Drug use, immorality and abortion are now legal.
What God calls sin, we condone. Why can’t people understand that God will have the last word? All of the events we are seeing now worldwide are predicted in the Bible. This time period is called “the end of days.” Everything is going to get worse, including the weather.
