"Climate science is no longer in question; major petroleum corporations, religious leaders and Rotary International all are calling for action. My goal is to provide information on an important topic that will disproportionately affect our coming generations so that voters and elected officials alike can make the best decisions possible. My approach is bipartisan, and will appeal to conservatives and progressives alike!"
