Kyle Gray, Ladera Ranch
I’m a 20-year-old student from Ladera Ranch who is worried about the ongoing climate crisis taking place in the world. After reading extensively about the recent wildfires in our beautiful state and their connection to climate change, I’ve realized that we need to take drastic action to curb the effects of climate change.
Because of this, I support New York Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution to create a House Select Committee for a “Green New Deal” in Congress. United Nations climate scientists tell us we have just 12 years to move our country off fossil fuels to avoid catastrophic climate disaster.
We need a Green New Deal to create millions of green jobs, move our country off fossil fuels and protect working people of all backgrounds. Congress members should support this resolution, and I hope that you can help motivate our local politicians and communities to support it, too.
