Time to act

Dominion Power’s recent increase in the rates they now pay back to solar users benefits the power company, the consumer and the planet.
In the context of climate change and the challenges ahead, the phrase “we need to act” is both a call to action and a practical response.
I think last week’s statement by Michael Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, says it best: “Beyond the president’s specific commitments, however, the most important take away from his speech is that he is determined to personally own this issue. That means taking responsibility in the face of what he has called a “moral obligation.” He is far from alone in recognizing such an obligation. A national poll earlier this year found that 93 percent of Americans agree that we have ‘a moral obligation to future generations to leave them a planet that is not polluted or damaged.’
Although the president’s desire to save the planet certainly resonates with environmentalists like myself and the Sierra Club’s 2.1 million members and supporters, that alone can’t account for the overwhelming support of more than 90 percent of the American population. Our moral obligation to future generations, though, is a different matter. If I ever need to get re-energized about fighting the climate crisis, all I need to do is look into the eyes of my kids. I know the same is true for President Obama. His exact words today: “As a president, as a father, and as an American, I’m here to say we need to act.”
