California’s Climate Change Battle

By Kristen Johnson

I have been a fan of California’s Governor Jerry Brown for a very, very long time, but now even more than ever. In response to the outrageous, unintelligible attitude of President-Elect Donald Trump regarding climate change, Governor Brown had this to say when reports came out that the incoming Administration could end NASA’s role in climate research:

“If Trump turns off the satellites, California will launch its own damn satellites,” he said. (NBC News).

Instead of ignoring the problem, our gutsy Governor is insisting that California will proceed without the federal government if needed. What’s not to love about our wonderful Governor?

Governor Brown has also promised to protect the state’s research labs and advanced research. When discussing the University of California and its laboratories, Governor Brown further stated:

“We’ve got the scientists. We’ve got the lawyers. We’re ready. California will continue in support of research.” (NBC News)

Keep up the good work Governor Brown. I am so proud to be a Californian, and it’s all because of you. Wear your “Moonbeam” title with pride – you deserve it and I wish we had more leaders like you!

Psalm 9:9 (NRSV): The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
