Yes, There is a Senator Who Fights Climate Change!

That I heard a senator speak on climate change is huge! So many elected officials deny climate change or are lackluster in their advocacy around it. So, by golly, we’re blogging about one who is different!

Having heard and lunched with Senator Hogg speak in Sioux City recently, I recommend his brand new book with few reservations. As soon as I said “steady-state economics,” he said Herman Daly. This guy knows his stuff!

America’s Climate Century: What Climate Change Means for America in the 21st Century and What Americans Can Do About It calls on Americans to make the fight against climate change our new national purpose. Climate change is the defining historical issue of the 21st Century. After the heat and drought of 2012, Hurricane Sandy, and all of the other recent climate disasters, it is time for America to take climate action.

Having represented Cedar Rapids, Iowa, during an unprecedented flood that caused billions in damage in 2008, State Senator Rob Hogg brings a dose of reality to the issue of climate change. What happens this century — ever-worsening climate disasters or effective action to fight climate change — depends on the knowledge and action of every American.

With a fresh, personal, accessible and straight-talking approach, this one book explains why the 21st Century is America’s climate century. In 120 pages, it succinctly explains the science, the consequences, and the solutions of climate change, and helps Americans understand why we need to lead the world in the effort to safeguard our people, our property and our future from the dangers of climate change.

In his second term in the Iowa Senate, Rob Hogg is serving as Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, after two terms in the Iowa House. He and his wife, Kate, live in Cedar Rapids with their three children. He is active with IowaClimateAdvocates.org.

The book is only $10 from local, independent bookstores or Amazon (paper or Kindle).
