Good morning, Senator Graham. I read your comments in The Times’ recent article about climate change. I think it’s important to note that innovation in renewables, agriculture, etc. will happen with or without government intervention. That said, it’s always better when business and government work in conjunction on projects of scale. To be sure, it’s not easier but it’s better.
In addition, the world is ready to collaborate on efforts to combat climate change. For example, the French–I know, I know, the French–have devised an agricultural-based plan to mitigate warming that in my opinion as a humble observer is the most promising solution to date. The solution is in the soil, and you will be proud to know that this plan draws heavily on the work of our very own Thomas Jefferson. Please watch the documentary Kiss the Ground on Netflix to learn more.
Putting global warming to one side, we may very well have less than sixty years of food harvests left here on Earth if we don’t take better care of our topsoil. I don’t know much about global warming either, but I do know that people need to eat.
That’s all for now. Thank you for your time and your ongoing service to the country.
