I had a job carrying water in five-gallon buckets and pouring it off into 55-gallon drums – heavy work at 8 lbs./gallon. Americans use about 200 gallons daily.
This morning I read about Mississippians who are without water after a storm froze critical infrastructure. How are they carrying clean water to live their lives?
We are unprepared for these infrastructure challenges that are associated with global weirding. There is federal legislation that can be a significant first step in calming our confused climate. We can agree to put an economy-wide price on carbon pollution. We will see a precipitous drop in emissions; 40% in 12 years. And a check will arrive at our doors from the USPS.
Let your members of Congress know we need an effective price on carbon – an exemplar is the Energy Innovation Act. Eighty-five members of Congress cosponsored it last session and thousands of economists agree that an effective price on carbon is necessary. You can help add some certainty in these confusing times, just ask for it.
