Moms Clean Air Force take a stand against politicizing the climate

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

By: Wendy Bredhold, Indiana Field Organizer for Moms Clean Air Force

Along with busloads of Hoosiers and 400,000 people from across the country, I attended the People's Climate March in New York City last month.

The march was the largest climate-related protest in history, urging world leaders to take action on climate change before it's too late.

When I returned to Evansville, I sent pictures of the march to 14NEWS Sunrise for its ShoutOut segment, but I was told that the station doesn't endorse those types of events.

Now, 14NEWS has the right to broadcast whatever it chooses, however it chooses, and they were generous to offer me this space to voice my opinion on the subject. But the response got me thinking about how climate change has been so politicized.

Those of us who fight for clean air and a stable climate are acting out of love and concern for our children, just like any parent who supports a cause that directly affects their child.

To me, this is not a political issue. It's very personal. It's about my daughter's future.

Climate change will hurt all of our children. We just can't continue to view it from both sides of a political divide.
