'Building Bridges'

Written by Monta Welch.

Previously, we had strong air and water regulations to protect wildlife, our environment and our health. However, in recent years, the political movement to make government smaller has weakened these beneficial, protective regulations. Global warming and climate change is happening now, and we need strong protective regulations more than ever. Even those who deny climate change must surely acknowledge that dirty water, dirty air and harmful chemicals in our soil contaminate our food and harm our health, as well as destroy our economy. Surely all can agree we need to unite to clean up our environment and stop pollution. Let's do it together to protect and preserve human and other life on earth.
