Thanks to Congresswoman Candice Miller for showing leadership on climate change solutions during her last days in office. Miller became the 16th Republican to co-sponsor House Resolution 424, a non-binding resolution recognizing the impacts of climate change and calling for Congress to work on solutions to reduce future risk. While the resolution expired with the end of the last Congress, it is expected to be reintroduced by another Republican sponsor. When it is, constituents of the 10th District should encourage Congressman Paul Mitchell to follow Miller’s lead. This resolution takes seriously the almost 100 percent consensus among scientists that our planet is warming at an unprecedented rate. It outlines numerous climate change impacts including extreme weather, wildfires, pollution related health problems, agricultural disruption, and finally, national security concerns. The latter were highlighted for me last fall, when I had the opportunity to spend time with Rear Adm. David Titley, U.S. Navy (ret.) when he visited Michigan to present about the national security risks of a changing climate. Titley, now director of the Penn State Center for Solutions to Weather and Climate Risk, said it’s fundamentally about people, water and change.
