    This would be very valuable. As a healthcare professional, climate change could pose many risks to health and wellbeing of individuals. From contaminated water sources to increases in vector-borne diseases and transmission to many other possibilities, many of which have already begun in various (and growing) pockets of our nation. Stop thinking that "things are fine" just because you are removed from a current area of risk- we have had the hottest years on record for three consecutive years. We are embarking upon a third mass extinction. Republican or democrat shouldn't matter when this affects us all equally.

    This is absolutely necessary! No climate change is not a hoax. It is real and we are seeing it's effects NOW. I am a nurse and can tell you the amount of people coming to the hospital because of difficulty breathing from poor air quality has drastically increased. We must address this issue.

    Climate change is real. We need to prepare. It will not just warmer temperatures. It will be higher water, flooding, spread of disease, and many other issues.

    While I agree with the majority of the bill I wonder if a blank check is in anyones' best interest.

    Climate change is a hoax people. Not to long ago we were told that the earth would soon go into an ice age, we would all freeze to death if we did not stop driving our cars. CO2 is bad. When that did not happen we were told that we are going to catch fire and melt due to the earth heating up. I have not heard of anyone melting due to the earth being so hot they burst into flames and leave a puddle of goo behind. So that did not work. Now we have climate change. What is it changing into? The data has been manipulated. People are so dumb lady in Boston said they got so much snow because the earth is warmer. So the warmer the earth gets they more snow we have? Yes she said. Question was asked 3 times same response. What happens then when the earth gets colder? She was asked. Crickets were heard from miles around (who laughed at for being so dumb)..... It is all about control people.
