The climate is changing too fast to take half-measures

The Dec. 12 front-page article “Arctic has lost 95% of its oldest ice, study finds” rightly sounded the alarm bells about how the loss of Arctic ice will trigger the acceleration of global warming. Unfortunately, the article incorrectly stated that Arctic ice restoration solutions are too “radical” for serious consideration. In fact, this year, Rep. Jamie B.

While this resolution has not been approved, I expect that the 116th Congress will take action on climate restoration, making up for our failure to act.
