Carbon Emissions

The current proposed standards are insufficient and shortsighted. We need deep, bold, progressive initiatives to reduce CO2 and Methane emissions that demonstrate a clear understanding of the present and looming health, economic and security threats they have been proven to cause. If you don't understand the science, if you don't have the courage to make the tough call, or if you simply are not willing to execute the responsibilities of your office, step aside and let those who recognize the critical nature and urgency of the situation get to work.
