We need to take significant action

Bruce Parker

Growing up in an Army family that moved every two years, I developed my love of nature as a young child swimming in the Pacific Ocean in the Panama Canal Zone, camping along rivers and skiing in Oregon, and boating on New England lakes. I have become increasingly alarmed as the impacts of climate change have occurred much more quickly than we had anticipated only 10 years ago. It is now apparent that we need to take significant action in the next few years if we are to have any chance of avoiding the really significant impacts of a changing climate. I support Environment America because of their focus on educating both the public and elected representatives on the reality of climate change, and on the importance of developing and implementing policies that will significantly reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
