Barry Peckham: Take it seriously

Hopefully future generations won’t look back on history and say: “I wish voters in 2018 had taken seriously the impact of climate change.” In order to avoid that, we must vote for candidates who are committed to meeting the challenge and supporting a government response.

Jeff Golden will do that in Salem. In time of despair, Jeff believes in “Immense Possibilities” and challenges all of us to do what we can even if that means making personal sacrifices. Probably the easiest way to begin to meet our responsibilities is to vote. Voter turnout could indicate how seriously we take the conclusions of a recently released scientific report on climate change.
