Demanding Action on Climate Change

“Staff at the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) have been told to avoid using the term ‘climate change’ in their work, with the officials instructed to reference ‘weather extremes’ instead.”
The Guardian, 8/7/2017

You’ve probably heard the Shakespearean phrase “that which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”? Well, that which we call “climate change” by any other name will do as much damage to our environment.

It will still cause severe storms, droughts, and wildfires. It will still harm our farmers, ranchers, and the outdoor economies of many states, including New Mexico.

Refusing to name climate change is just another attempt to deny science and refuse to take action.

Climate change is climate change, no matter what you call it — and we need to do something about it. Demand immediate action from the Trump administration to fight climate change.
