Join the Citizens Climate Lobby team | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Snowy Cascade and Olympic mountains are bright and clear these days! And the birds seem to singing more. I saw a great blue heron fishing right near a street that used to be busy.

Wouldn’t it be nice if clean energy jobs become plentiful as the COVID threat lifts? What if electric buses take more cars off the road? Traffic jams don’t have to come back!

The cleaner air we’re enjoying has already halved people suffering from heart attacks in preliminary studies around the world. And what if every American received a check in the mail every month as a clean air dividend?

All of these benefits will be more likely if your congressman supports the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. Join the Citizens Climate Lobby team. We make friends and work together to rebuild the economy safely and cleanly. Let’s hope that babies born today will always breathe clean air and be inspired by snowy mountains.
