Thank you for printing the article regarding Gov. Cooper’s plan to cut state greenhouse gas emissions, “Cooper sets global warming goal to cut NC greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent” (Oct. 29).
I am relieved that a representative of state government is willing to step up to the plate by taking this initiative. State and local leaders are going to have to act on behalf of North Carolina’s citizens, and I hope that all N.C. legislators will work with Gov. Cooper towards immediate implementation of his plan.
The looming crisis of climate change must be dealt with now. This should not be something that divides along party lines, but instead brings government members together in a collaborative effort. Jen Almond Cary
