Letter to Senators Baldwin and Johnson

To the Editor:

To Senators Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson,

Respectfully, I am writing you to ask you to absolutely stop Scott Pruitt's nomination to be the head of our EPA ... it feels like asking my great-grandchildren to go to DC and ask for the same thing ...

I have never not been active as a Democrat ... but for your information Sen. Johnson you are still one of my Senators to call on. I am sure Sen. Baldwin will try her best ... but what about you, Sen. Johnson? I cannot believe anyone in their right mind would be supporting any of Trump's staff members thus far. Does he not realize that his supporters are now turning away?

We live on this planet and we will die here as well but it should not be a result of carelessness and greed on the part of those who deny there is urgency to the action we must take now. It would be unforgivable to leave the destruction for our children and grandchildren ... and the rest of the world who may not have the technology to do what needs to be done.

I cannot believe the idiocy of those who say climate warning is not true. Probably that does imply that those who do not care is because they must think "Heck I'll be dead by then ..." Like I said before carelessness, greed, and probably pure politics.

Please consider carefully what I am asking you both to do... know one thing I will be watching for your accountability to this huge, dangerous issue ... and will let my friends and neighborhood people in Wisconsin ... what I see you do ... or not.

Gail Gumness

Pruitt is an outstanding choice, notwithstanding the knee-jerk Sky is Falling! expressions of fear by our local Planet Savers. Time to move on.

A little late Mr. Gumness Scott Pruitt has been confirmed and is head of out-of-control EPA. Pruitt is a great choice.
