Letter to the Editor: Support Green New Deal

I am a freshman at the University of Portland. Learning more and more about climate change has made me scared for my future and for the future of the generations to come.

I fully support Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution to create a House Select Committee for a Green New Deal in Congress. It is proven fact that we have just 12 years to move our country off fossil fuels to avoid catastrophic climate disaster and to protect my generation and the future generations to come.

We need a Green New Deal to create millions of green jobs, move our country off fossil fuels, and protect working people of all backgrounds. Every Congress member should support this resolution.
