QuestionBrief ResponseFull Response
Global warming is an existential challenge facing humanity. Do you think Hamilton should play a role in addressing climate change? If so, what should the city be doing? If not, why not? Yes I am inclined to the frame of thinking that should the steel plants cease to exist it might go a long way to solving many of your questions.If you really want to do your part for global warming all while monumentally changing Hamilton help eliminate the cause and source of the problem.Would not every living thing on earth benefit from the steel plants demise not only immediately but over time? Would it be reasonable to assume that the living conditions of thousands of Hamiltonians would be greatly improved? Would you not assume that the planet as a whole would benefit ?

I would align with actions that would see the end of steel production in Hamilton .I have no concern ,neither am I particularly sympathetic to those that would like to pander to their on going existence
