Aberdeen Daily World, Letter to the Editor, Sept 16, 2017
Tulsi Gabbard, a congressperson from Hawaii, just announced the “OFF” bill (H.R.3671 - Off Fossil Fuels for a Better Future Act). The bill proposes to move the United States’ electricity, auto and rail systems to 100 percent renewable energy by 2035.
Climate change is caused by the burning of fossil fuels. There are other factors, but they are dwarfed by the impact of burning fuels. The recent widespread fires and floods are a
wake-up call. The stifling smoke in every Washington household and the recent loss of scenic parts of the Columbia Gorge have hit home. The fingerprints of climate change are on these extreme events.
We are in that moment in history before a thing becomes the thing. It is time to get off fossil fuels. Call Rep. Derek Kilmer and tell him to support the OFF bill. Be on the right side of history.
