About 8,600 U.S. locations set record temperatures last month. The economic consequences of climate disruption are massive, and we all pay directly or indirectly. According to drought.gov, “Abnormal dryness or drought is currently affecting approximately 2,764,000 people in Utah, which is about 100 percent of the state’s population.”

The book “Climate of Hope” by Michael Bloomberg and Carl Pope describes how cities, businesses and individuals are already taking action to address climate disruption.

Congress needs to act to address the real impacts of climate change. Stop political partisanship. Ignore the president, because all he wants is to focus on himself. Time to dump our current members of Congress!
