Emis­sions goals

The News & Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

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
