Elect those who care about the planet
Three recent reports state our climate is on steroids, causing enormous human misery and costs:
1. The Trump administration projects a 7-degree temperature increase by 2100.
2. A UN scientific group predicts by 2040 that the worst effects of climate change will be upon us.
3. Nature Magazine states that the oceans are far warmer than previously thought.
Those who continue to elect politicians who support fossil fuels are complicit in worsening climate change and those politicians who continue to support fossil fuel energy will be held in contempt by future generations.

It is puzzling what “accomplishments” Forum writer Trigg Cherry is referring to when he speaks of Trump. The economy is an extension of Obama’s administration, North Korea is still a menace and he has done nothing about China but start a trade war.
He also sent the military to multiple states costing us millions of dollars when the so-called caravan showed up primarily near California. He has disrespected the
and traditions and recently denied that Saudi Arabia has anything to do with the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. So what has he done that is positive and good for the country? Nothing.

Not sure where Forum writer Mary Englebert is getting her economic data, but to claim that “almost every reliable graph of economic activity proves the economy grew at a faster pace under President Obama” is surprising to say the least.
From 2009-2016 under President Obama, real GDP grew at annual rate of 1.53 percent. Under President Trump, real GDP grew

and averaged 3.3 percent through three quarters of 2018. It is disappointing when facts get in the way.
