EcoRight news: Former GOP Ohio Gov Kasich says we can’t afford to NOT tackle climate change
This week’s must read: It’s Time for American Leaders to Wake Up to the Threat of Climate Change for the Good of the Planet and Business (Time) Ohio’s former Governor, John Kasich, wrote this op-ed in which he calls climate change “another problem that we know is coming, that we have the power to address, and yet which we continually do too little—or often nothing—to tackle.”
“Though often regarded as a hot potato in politics, one of the biggest points of opposition to addressing climate change is the cost. How can a world whose transportation and energy systems are so heavily rooted in burning hydrocarbons afford to scrap them and shift to other, cleaner forms of energy?”he writes. “I approach it from the other direction, however: how can we afford not to?”
