To the editor:

In March of this year, Representative Mary Franson boasted proudly on her Facebook page, “I do not believe in ‘climate change’ or ‘global warming.’”

In the Tuesday, October 20 Star Tribune, there is an article titled “Local firms commit to climate goals.” Best Buy, General Mills and Target joined 81 of America’s biggest firms such as Apple, General Motors, Coca-Cola and Wal-Mart, and took the climate pledge, recognizing that delaying action on climate change will be costly in economic and human terms.

I would like to challenge Rep Franson to write a letter to the editor explaining how her denial of climate change will benefit the future of her constituents, her children and her future grandchildren.
