Iowa senator urges action on climate change at CCSU

Aug 30th, 2013 | By | Category: Climate Change

Touring New England in an attempt to call all Americans to take action and join the fight to help slow climate change, Iowa state Sen. Rob Hogg visited Central Connecticut State University Thursday.

He was blunt when talking about the issue and the importance of combating it.

“It is the defining moral challenge of this century,” he said. “And Americans need to lead the world in the global fight for sustainability and survival.”

The fight against climate change, he said, means slashing greenhouse gas emissions by moving beyond fossil fuels, and at the same time safeguarding people and property from more frequent and severe climate disasters — extreme storms, floods, drought, wildfires and general ecological disruptions.
