Reader's View: If not now, when on discussing climate?
I was dismayed but not surprised to see a newsfeed on Sept. 8 reporting that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Commissioner Scott Pruitt said that now was not the time to discuss climate change. This was as a category 5 hurricane was beating to a pulp areas of the Caribbean before...

With all of today's news, it shouldn't be too difficult to get Congress, the administration of President Donald Trump, and American taxpayers to agree that rather than building a fence across our southern border we start a monumental infrastructure program to prepare for future weather...
