Climate change is the most important political issue today

Statement in Support by Kathy Seal

We are in a desperate situation: if we do not slash greenhouse gas emissions in a major way in the next 11 years, according to the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the earth will become uninhabitable for humans, not to mention for millions of other species. I have heard Loraine speak and seen her in action. She knows this issue backwards and forwards, and has concrete and viable proposals to lead Los Angeles in combating climate change. She is not in this race to get a job, to plump up her ego, or for any other reason that is not altruistic. She is already an environmental hero and is primed to lead the City Council to cut our greenhouse gas emissions sharply, and to through our city’s weight behind the most effective state and national policies to save our planet.
