Kudos to the Daily Herald for telling it like it is! The editorial in the Jan. 26 Herald, “Climate action needn’t cost us a good economy,” was an excellent and timely argument for immediate and transformative action. Thank you for discussing some of the substantial negative and expensive local impacts of climate change.
Perhaps even more importantly, thank you for pointing out the fact that Washington State and Snohomish County have exceptional expertise and opportunity to grow the green economy. I hope The Herald’s commentary encourages the many residents interested in health and economic progress to urge the Everett City Council and Snohomish County Council to adopt concrete climate action plans leading to prosperity, economic justice and a healthy, thriving environment for all forms of life.
