How is climate change impacting you and your family now? How do you think it will affect our kids and future generations?

The Issue

Climate change is no longer a far-off risk. Washington is experiencing impacts consistent with what is expected as a result of climate change.

Glaciers and spring snowpack have declined and the timing of stream flows has changed for many rivers. And, climate extremes like floods, droughts, wildfires and landslides are already affecting Washington’s air, water, food sources, and economy. Sea level is rising on most of Washington’s coast, ocean acidification has increased, and there’s long-term warming.

  1. You are miss using the term climate change trying to imply humans cause all climate change when it is mostly due to natural forces. Even mainstream scientists say last winter’s snow drought and this summers heat had nothing to do with global warming.
    Of course sea levels are rising. They have doing that since the end of the last ice age. You say most of Washington’s coast is experiencing sea level rise. If not all the coast then some other factor(s) must be at work. Is the ocean really acidic or just less alkaline? What is the pH?

    So there is really no serious impact now from manmade co2 emissions nor will there be any in the future. Make these clean air standards as lax as possible.

    Finally, quit using “carbon” in your material when you are really talking about co2. You surely know they are two different things. Or are you trying to mislead people to picture black smoke and soot rather than invisible co2 which is what you are claiming is the problem and needs regulating.
